Tasik Ria Photo-Pro from the 6th - 28th of September
Hi Peter, Paul “Duxy” Duxfield here, I have been asked by the owners of Tasik Ria Resort in North Sulawesi just outside of Manado, to be their very own house photo-pro for a three week period during September this year. So if your planning to book a trip during this period and want to get some help shooting and editing your photo’s, and regardless of whether you are an absolute beginner or a keen photo geek, then this is the time to come.
Of course this part of the world is famous for its top class diving, and underwater photography help is a big thing on the agenda.But it would be a shame to only shoot underwater, as this area has got so much more to offer the budding travel photographer with its bustling exotic markets, volcanic landscapes and vibrant rain forests.Lets also not forget some of the friendliest locals you will ever encounter on your foreign travels.
Whatever you experience level rest assured there will be something for you. I like to show that once you have some very basic skills mastered, it’s then only a question of putting them into practice, so don’t worry if you can’t tell your aperture form your elbow, I can help. Or if you have the basics worked out already then maybe you want some pointers on image editing, or you need a helping hand with your composition, then, I can help.
Photography is a subject people enjoy on many levels, and I love talking about all the various aspects of photography that there is. Over the years I have been lucky enough to use a wide variety of photographic equipment from large format film cameras in commercial studio sitiuations, right the way through to simple “point and shoot” digi-compacts, and if there is one important thing I have learnt, it is the picture that counts in the end and not the kit that it was taken on.
I have always been into photography and for me it is neither a hobby or profession, more a way of life, and I have been lucky enough to merge my passion for photography with my work. I am always taking pictures wether it is with a high end DSLR, a digi compact or just on my iPhone. There isn’t a day goes by when I am not shooting.
And if I am not shooting pictures I am talking, reading or editing photography. I have worked for the past six years in the underwater photographic trade, with sidelines writing for various specialist Dive and photography magazines
I also lecture around my home country about how to get great shots with whatever camera you own.
I value feedback and questions relating to photography so please don’t be shyIf you would like to get in touch and have any questions about what I can do for you please either contact me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org
or alternatively get in touch with Tasik Ria resort on email@example.com
with Phototrip as your message heading.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
