Landscape Photography Workshops with Johannes Wilske
Do you like shooting landscapes? Do you want to learn how to really operate your camera and realize stunning images with only a few simple tricks?
In my workshops, I will teach you everything that you need to know about landscape photography: from planning and finding great locations, composition techniques and choice of focal length, working with filters and harsh light conditions, bracketing and how to find the perfect focal point to post-processing.
All landscape photography workshops are being offered in beautiful locations across the world, all of which I’ve thoroughly scouted in order to guide you to the best possible spots during the best light. Working only with small groups or even one-on-one allows me to cater to your individual abilities and needs. Start your photo adventure now and discover the fascinating world of landscape photography!
"As a hobby photographer, I really enjoyed the professional and friendly mentoring Johannes gave me. It was exactly what I was looking for and the workshop left me motivated to work more on my photography in the future. I can really recommend this workshop and I’m sure it wasn’t my last one."
-Dennis Siebert, Germany
Who are these workshops for?All of my landscape photography workshops are for beginners, enthusiasts, amateurs and semi-professional photographers. Working with small groups ensures that I (and on most workshops, another pro photographer) can cater to your individual abilities and needs.
Do I need a DSLR or mirrorless camera?Yes. For landscape photography, you’ll need a camera that allows you to manually dial in all of the settings like ISO, shutter speed and aperture. The camera also needs a viewfinder and the ability to switch lenses.
What other equipment do I need?During all workshops, we mostly work with a tripod. You should have a tripod that’s stable enough to carry your camera comfortably even during heavy winds. Additionally, I can recommend the use of filters, but this is not a must. After booking a workshop, I’ll also send you a checklist with all the equipment that I recommend for the specific workshop.
Can I give the workshop as a gift?Yes, of course! In fact, a photo workshop is a great gift for photo enthusiasts, friends or family members, which brings a lot of joy and will be remembered for a long time. If you want to gift a workshop, you have several options: Just send me an E-mail and let me know that you would like to give a workshop as a present. You can also choose a voucher for a certain amount of money, with which the recipient can decide on a workshop himself. The gift voucher will be printed on high-quality art paper and sent to you by post.
How is the balance between theory and practice?I’m a big fan of the premise ‘Learning by Doing’. Most of the time will be spent taking photos at fascinating photo spots under the best lighting conditions. I will answer your questions and guide you in whatever topic you’re interested in. In-field, there will be many creative and technical aspects that can be addressed and you can try them out and internalize them right away.
Can I prepare myself for the workshop?I advise you being more or less familiar with the basic settings of your camera. Since there are countless camera manufacturers and models, I can’t know all the settings of all cameras. If you are still unsure how to use your camera, feel free to bring along the camera manual :)
Are the workshops physically demanding?During the workshops we will do some small hikes to the photo spots which can also go uphill. However, these always take place on well-maintained roads or paths and can easily be mastered with normal physical fitness.
Do you have any further questions? Feel free to contact me and I’ll make sure to answer them as quickly as possible.
