Photographic Course

Welcome to our Photography Workshops

JJ van Heerden and Nicole Palmer – two passionate and creative photographers with a proven track record – presenting various photography workshops.

The Aus and Overberg workshops are amongst the oldest regular photo courses in Southern Africa. Together, we have more than 30 year’s experience in presenting photographic workshops.

As protégés of renowned Canadian photographer Freeman Patterson, we teach the use of visual language to express yourself photographically. You will receive personal attention and encouragement as you pursue your own creativity. The locations of our workshops are chosen carefully not only for their photogenic qualities, but also for their ability to appeal on a spiritual level. Join us and explore the techniques to capture your own exceptional nature images.

The numbers of participants on the workshops are limited and our workshops are usually fully booked well in advance. Early booking is accordingly strongly advised.

Come and meet old friends or make new ones.

Non-Participants are welcome on any of the workshops and can join the photographers at all meals, on field outings, view the audio-visual programmes in the evenings and attend the Grand Finale showing of participant’s images. Please contact us for costs for each workshop.
