Astro Photography Workshop

Updated: Jul 18, 2019

We are very excited to announce our first Astro photography workshop in the Cederberg.

Mount Ceder - Kleinfeld

Welcome to our blog post. After some scouting for a venue in the Cederberg to host our Astro Photography Workshop, we found "Mount Ceder"; a beautiful four star lodge on the Grootriver. The owners welcomed us with open arms and were kind enough to sponsor the venue for the workshop. A link to their website will be here below.
