Join Joe Lategan and Hardus natives of this beautiful region for a 3 day workshop on any of the dates or book a tailor made program in Betty’s bay Overstrand. Betty's Bay is situated in one of the most picturesque settings in South Africa. Placed below the grand and dramatic Hottentots Mountains, it is always within view of some of its beautiful beaches. Dramatic rock formations, caves, open rock strewn beaches and crystal clear waters all provide ample foreground subjects to the granitic rock massive and the Hottentots mountain range in the background; A landscape photographers dream.
Kleinmond, Betty’s bay and Hangklip peaks are caped with majestic cloud formations during sunrises and sunsets and complete the dimensions required for a breathtaking landscape image. Foreground interests are enough to pick and choose from. Some have dubbed this area the "golden mile" of Seascape photography in Southern Africa. Luckily it is not that well known as yet. The confined collection of waterfalls, lagoons, rocks, Sea Mountains, plant species, gorges, wetlands, caves beaches, rock formations, fishing activities and other adventure activities makes it a photographer’s haven. Then a short drive over the mountain you find yourself in the Overberg, a gem on its own displaying a kaleidoscope of colors that range from yellow canola’s to red and orange coloured vineyards in the Hexriver valley. Enough to give you camera fever and the shakes.
Knowledge of the regions natural wonders and the climatic conditions are a great advantage to the host of such an event. Joe's objective with the workshop: To motivate you to first see or identify the potential masterpieces. Then inspire you to translate your personal visions of the natural world, through your photographic tools, and then to your audience? Perfect for winter breakaways-The Cape in winter is a Landscape photographer’s dream destination. One of the last lessons of a landscape photographer’s career is that bad weather is normally associated with good landscape and fine art photographic opportunities. The Overstrand and Overberg regions are without a doubt the best place to test ones overall skills as a photographer.
