Landscape / Startrail Photography Workshop # 1 - 2020

We are very excited to announce our first Landscape / Startrail photography workshop in the Cederberg for 2020

Mount Ceder - Kleinfeld

After a very successful 2019 season we went scouting for new compositions on a private farm. We are very excited to kick of 2020 with some different photographic possibilities and decided to start off 2020 with a Landscape / Startrail combo at the end of February in the Cederberg. Our base will still be "Mount Ceder"; a beautiful four star lodge on the Grootriver. We will have three locations to choose from....depending on what the weather has planned for us.
