Frustrated by the same old images that don’t really capture what you saw or come anywhere close to describing the outdoor adventure? Join UK based photographer and photojournalist Alex Ekins to learn the skills and techniques necessary to give your work direction and see if you have what it takes to become an outdoor photojournalist or photographer!
What to Expect:
Record the significant moments, document unfolding news, capture the stories of those attending the event. Alex will help you along your way in to the world of photography and photojournalism.
