If you have seen these images and ever wondered how to capture them with your own camera, you will learn to master night photography camera settings, photo editing in Photoshop, and advanced planning techniques allowing you to easily find the Milky Way and clear dark skies. Should you be a seasoned and experienced photographer, Rogge Cloof Private Sutherland Estate offers you the best of the Karoo night skies, with minimal light pollution to afford you the most rewarding imagery under crispy, cold and clear night skies imaginable. That is of course under favourable weather conditions. Even under partly cloudy or partially moonlit skies, one can still create spectacular images.
I am really excited to bring you another fantastic workshop and tour experience for 2019. It is an informal workshop with a practical instruction element to it. Group sizes are very small and limited to a first come first serve basis, allowing a more personal one-on-one experience.
As a photographer, some geographic regions beckon your return, they simply speak to you. Year after year, through changing seasons, conditions, weather patterns, and daily struggles there is that calling to return to capture something that you may have missed on your previous visit, or a new concept that you had in mind, that would be appropriate for that location.
These special places become part of you, and they are reflected in the work or images that you produce. They call you back, for more backpacking adventures, for more solo journeys through the wilderness, for more road trips through the roads sometimes less travelled with your friends.
For me, these quiet, still places is where I find my inspiration from Nature and are refreshed when I need to take a deep breath. They have become part of who I am and taught me more than any textbook or class ever will. I take tours here because these places call me back year after year.
I’m delighted to share this amazing workshop experience with other passionate photographers, who love the call of adventure, learning new things, and spending night after night, under a canopy of stars, far away from the noise of daily life and the city lights.
