Landscapes of the Overberg

Join master photographer Henk Venter to shoot the ever-changing landscape of the Overberg. The splendour of the Overberg never disappoints as every season brings with it its own charm and visual beauty. From the intensely yellow canola flowers stretching as far as the eye can see to the unplanted brown monochromatic hills.

In this course, Henk will take you to a few of his secret spots around Swellendam where you will shoot alongside him and have full access to his considerable skill set and comprehensive-yet easy to understand, instruction. 

Course dates:

6 August – 8 August
