Imagine covered wagons pulled by oxen and adorned with flowers crossing the Spanish countryside. Pilgrims in traditional dress riding on horseback from the beautiful sun-drenched city of Seville to the picturesque village of El Rocio in Andalucia. Stop imagining and immerse yourself in this rich tradition by joining award winning photographers Hector Emanuel, Michael Robinson Chávez and Leica Akademie for a 6-day photographic workshop during the historic El Rocío Pilgrimage.
We will be based in Seville, a center of Spanish culture and one of Europe’s most beautiful and photogenic cities. Michael and Hector will be helping you push your vision and raise your photographic talents to a new level while photographing one of Europe’s truly unique and visually captivating spectacles.
One on one sessions with Michael and Hector, paired with group critiques and talks, will improve your composition, enhance how you see light, anticipate moments and break down the barriers between you and the people you are photographing.
The talks and a closing reception will be held at Cobertura Photo, an acclaimed photographic school and gallery space in the heart of Seville. Your photographs will be proudly projected during the reception. We see this as more of an experience than a workshop. Join us!
This workshop contains a $1,000 nonrefundable deposit participants accept when signing up. Any questions can be answered by emailing AkademieUSA@leica-camera.com or seeing our terms and conditions page. LINK HERE
