Surf in the morning and shoot in the afternoon
Did you know that the island of Fuerteventura is one of European top surf destination? The sunny climate all year long, the consistent waves and the long and uncrowded beaches make it perfect for surfers of any level!
For this reason Photo Canarias offers a special combo package: learn to surf in the morning and shoot with us in the afternoon.
The surf course
Ready to learn how to catch your first waves?!
We collaborate with the oldest and most experienced surf school of Corralejo to offer our customers the best service!
You will be surfing everyday (also on Sundays) and the surf course is about 5 hours a day (mostly from10.00 till 15.00).
The lessons are given for different levels:
- Beginners: people who have never been surfing (or 1 day of experience)
- Improvers: people who have been surfing but with less than 2 weeks of experience
- Intermediate: people with more than 2 weeks of surf experience
With the beginners and improvers they go to beach breaks (so with a sandy bottom) and with the level intermediate they go to ‘easy’ reef breaks and beach breaks.
Maximum 8 students per instructor.
The photo course
Everyday in the afternoon we will shoot some of the most scenic locations of the Island and there you will have the chance to shoot with the help and tips of two professional photographers.
Depending on the light and weather conditions we will be taking pictures of breathtaking sunsets, volcanic lunar landscapes, red mountains meeting blue lagoon and all the beutiful sightseeings that make Fuerteventura a unique place in the world. (Fuerteventura has been declared a Biosphere Reserve by Unesco in 2009).
This course is offered from beginner to experienced photographer and provides elements on the following subjects:
- the principles associated with light, lenses and cameras
- how to create a good composition in photography
- shooting techniques (landscapes, travel, action and portraits)
- image processing
Equipment and Gears
Every participant must bring his own equipment usually used to shoot. We also suggest to bring a tripod for low light conditions and long exposure photos (check with your flight company if you can bring your tripod on board as hand luggage).
If you have one, it could be helpful to bring your laptop to download the photos and help you in the selection of the best shots. To better follow the post processing demonstration and if you don’t have them already, you can download the Adobe’s software trial version (Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom) from adobe.
We recommend to bring comfortable socks and walking shoes or light hiking shoes. Bring sunscreen and a hat. We suggest bringing sweatshirts as well as wind-breaker for the early morning shooting.
