The LUZIA MELQART photography course holiday in Cadiz, Spain


This photography course holiday is based in the oldest populated city in Europe. Cadiz is a peninsula on the Atlantic Costa de la Luz. We are situated in the Casco Antiguo, originally founded by the Phoenicians. Older than Athens and Rome, the city of Cadiz, with its labyrinth of narrow streets and stunning coastal region, is a treasure of historic interest, with a strong visual legacy left behind by the Romans, the Moors, Franco, and even the British. We only have to mention Melqart (identified with Hercules), Julius Caesar, Napoleon, Sir Francis Drake and Lord Byron, who have all contributed to the Cadiz history.

The MELQART photography holiday takes you to several enchanting historic sites.

These locations are bathed in the amazing light of the Costa de la Luz. We use our local knowledge to visit the locations when the tide and light is just right. We teach you to master exposure in both normal and extreme lighting conditions, controlling focus and depth of field. We show how you can loosen up your compositions, making the shots more compelling.

You’ll enjoy both photography and excursions,  finishing your pictures in Photoshop, so you have a collection of photos to show for your trip. You’ll also get handouts written uniquely for the course. Whether you are looking to find creative angles to your images, or learn how to shoot architectural images in both a technical and representational way, we have the know-how, and we’re

eager to share it with you. This photography course is suitable for enthusiastic people of any age, who enjoy photography, history, art and culture.

It’s a dynamic and adventurous course with lots of content and great value!

It’s up to yourself how much (or little) you wish to shoot, but be prepared to be on the move. We take you as close as we can to the locations but there’s usually some walking; flat beaches, stairs, some hills. For what to bring, please see the ‘practicals‘ page. Also have a look at the Cadiz City Info page, which contains some useful information if you’re planning on visiting.

First and foremost this is an inspirational photography course combined with historic background. We have scheduled these courses so that they are outside the hottest season, for those who prefer to avoid the summer heat. The light is great all year around!
