Zenfolio | Shari Tucker Photography | Turkey: Through the Lens 2016

May 2016 (Dates TBA)

Join me to discover the diversity, colour and culture of North-Eastern Turkey and then fly away with me to the land of fairy chimneys in Cappadocia where you’ll be treated to a sunrise hot air balloon ride and other-worldly landscapes that will capture your heart and mind. Turkey will wow you with scents, sights and sounds. Be careful though, it might just capture your heart forever.

The 2016 photo tour will be broken into two sections. The photo workshop will be held at the beginning of the tour as an optional add-on in Istanbul. It is not required, but strongly recommended for those looking to take better control of their photography and gives you a great experience in local Istanbul as well as free time to explore the highlights of the city.

WORKSHOP: There will be an intensive two-day photo workshop suitable for beginner’s or those who are looking to improve their photography through better composition and taking control of their camera by shooting on full manual mode. Also included will be a workshop on basic low light photography. All skills will be taught in classroom and then practiced extensively throughout the streets of Istanbul before joining the main part of the photo tour where you will have a better understanding of your camera and new skills to help you capture amazing photos of a diverse country.

PHOTO TOUR: The photo tour itself will be concentrated on taking the group to exceptional destinations to capture the essence of Turkey: Through the lens. You will visit amazing off the beaten track destinations such as the Sumela Monastery, a homestay in Saavat, Ani and Dougboyit. All the while surrounded by amazing wildflowers draping the mountainsides with colors abound. You'll experience the history and the culture, but with more time to photograph the amazing sites at a relaxed pace. Once we reach Cappadocia, you'll be treated to a sunrise hot air balloon ride and sunsets over Rose Valley.
