A strong nature photo must connect the viewer to the animal and his environment. Beyond the necessary technique and timing, observation and empathy are vital for impact.
If you love nature and capturing the essence of it, then a workshop with Alexander Koenders might be something for you. For beginner and intermediate portrait photographers. The group size is usually around ten people, condensed enough to get personal attention and large enough for interesting interaction. See for more information:
Being an expert in wildlife photography and owner of a environmental focused Dutch consultancy group, Alexander loves to share his perspective about humans and their environmental surroundings.
His speeches light up the empathic stories behind his images, which are drawn from many years of work in nature from Japan to America. Koender’s presentations feature his strongest images and thoughtful commentary on the challenges of global conservation and the role of photography within.
Not only the more exotic destinations like Hokkaido, Helgoland, Krugerpark, Yellowstone national park, Iceland and Namibia, but also European parks have been succesful photo adventures in the last decades.
Keep close watch on Alexanders blog for future initiatives that are open for intermediate photographers.
