Cadiz, the oldest city of the west, is situated South of Seville in the Costa de la Luz. In Cadiz, a city far away from the usual tourist circuits, you can learn Spanish and enjoy your stay walking its streets, discovering its squares, and the most important, getting to know the inhabitants, the “gaditanos” who are always very welcoming and friendly with their visitors. Whatsmore, the city of Cadiz and its surroundings offer many diverse possibilities. It is difficult to sum up what Cadiz offers those who visit, we would have to mention so many things, its history, art, its location, the climate, the beaches, its inhabitants, its fiestas.

Come and discover it!


We integrate plenty of activities and we shoot along the way. 
The course goes quite easy on the photography, but we give you instruction on how to take the best pictures possible with your camera, whether it’s an iPhone or a digital SLR.


Taking pictures is part of the fun, and we encourage lots of playfulness in the shooting, so that the resulting images are more creative than the usual holiday snaps.

It is based on a mix of your favourite activities, for example surfing (as we do on the Levante course), Gastronomic experiences (see Epicurus) and a visit to a historic town such as Vejer (Melqart).

During each of these activities we instruct you on how to shoot it, capturing or freezing movement, aiming for some really dynamic shots. Half the group will be shooting while the other half is engaging in the activities. Then we swop around so that all get a chance to do both shooting and activity.

We will also 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. We also have a few hours of Photoshop optimization built into the course, to show you how you can improve your shots with a minimum of effort, aiming to come away with an on-line gallery of your shots.

An enjoyable course, with a variety of activities to suit anyone who likes photography and life!
