Mongolia in FocusMongolia
Pack your camera and adventurous spirit, because this is Mongolia, where wild grasslands, thriving markets and diverse culture are the perfect setting for anyone interested in photography. Here, a tutor will teach you to navigate your camera’s intricate functions and share techniques to craft the best shots. Learn the rules of composition while snapping the sunset over the Khongoryn Els dunes, experiment with shutter speed at the waterfalls of Ulaan Tsutgalan, and master portraiture when photographing nomadic families.
You’ll visit ger (yurt) camps along the way, immersing yourself in nomadic life and sampling traditional dishes like khorkhog (slow-cooked mutton and vegetables). You’ll even get out from behind the lens to construct a ger, distil your own vodka, and ride horses across the countryside. As stars dot the night sky, relax beside the campfire and compare the day’s shots with your fellow snappers.
- Learning useful photography techniques that will have you snapping some of the best shots you’ve ever captured
