Nat Geo Day Tour: Medieval Rhodes, a Photography Tour

Rhodes is one of the most photographed cities in Greece thanks to the world-class heritage bequeathed by the medieval Knights Hospitaller. The Order of St John of Jerusalem occupied Rhodes from 1309 to 1523, transforming the city into a stronghold. Their fortifications will be the focus of your photography masterclass. How will you capture the story of Rhodes through your images? Your visit begins with a theory session where your National Geographic-trained photography guide will share tips on composition, lighting, and storytelling through photography. To add an exciting dimension to your day's photography, your tutor will run a competition to find the best shot of the day. With that motivation, you'll walk around the perimeter of the fortress and through the huge gateway, capturing shots of the medieval elements. As you enter the old walled town of Rhodes – which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1988 – more exciting shooting locations will reveal themselves, including the Street of Knights and the Clock Tower. Your guide will offer technical advice, demonstrate the best angles, and point out good places to capture wow-factor photos. Once the photography tour is complete, you'll relax over refreshments and discuss the day's images with your guide, who will give your group an evaluation of the day's work. The best image will be chosen in the context of its connection with National Geographic values, and once the decision has been made, a winner will be declared.

Nat Geo Day Tour: Volcanic Beauty of Lanzarote, Photography Tour

Become a visual storyteller under the guidance of your National Geographic-trained photography guide. You'll pick up invaluable insights on capturing the perfect shot, be it in terms of composition, lighting, or narrative. After introducing the competitive element of the day, your guide will take you to Timanfaya National Park, and the first vantage point – on top of a volcano. Timanfaya's lunar landscapes were formed hundreds of years ago, when a series of volcanic eruptions covered a quarter of the island in lava. Think rugged lava fields, brooding volcanic cones, and swathes of charcoal-grey ash. Travelling on to the fishing village of El Golfo, you will find a jumble of traditional buildings and bright boats which contrast with the black sand beach and the unusual green lake. It's a perfect location for capturing contrasting color. Then, it's time to discover the ancient salt flats of Salinas de Janubio, another landscape saturated with drama and stark appeal. This area is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and an important bird sanctuary - a paradise for your shutterbug instincts. With a specialist photographer at your side, you'll gain new skills and fresh inspiration, plus a collection of captivating images. As the day concludes on the terrace at Salinas de Janubio, unwind over a glass of wine or beer and a light snack, while your photography guide reviews the day's photos. The best image of the day gets crowned the winning shot, an exciting ending to an enriching photographic journey.
