The photo workshop “On the Tracks of Che Guevara – A Photography Workshop” is a great opportunity to discover one of the most beautiful countries in South America, rich in culture, history and nature. You will be able to take amazing pictures in La Higuera, where Che Guevara spent his last night before he was shot dead, you will visit the Laundry in the Señor de Malta Hospital in Vallegrande , where the corpse of Che Guevara was presented to the world as proof that he was really dead. We will meet eye witnesses to those historical events and will visit the place where his body was buried for 30 years. But this trip is not only about the tracks of Che Guevara. You will visit amazing places in their own rights.
This workshop is directed to photographers of all levels, beginners to advanced professionals. In other words: Whoever loves photography! In this workshop you will improve your photographic skills; you will learn to better use your camera and improve your understanding of light. Each student will be gently pushed to create pictures that show colour, passion, light and movement. Participants will receive one-on-one editing and hands-on instruction from Otto and Sven to develop their strengths and try to overcome weaknesses. A final slide show will highlight the best work from each student.
At the end of the 11 day workshop you will bring back home unforgettable photos that will impress your friends and family.
