i-Nature Photography Workshop by Stockie

What a coincidence! A fellow friend from Photomalaysia, known as Stockie (or his real name, Khairul Azhar), who is also a nature & landscape photography enthusiast, is organising a similar photography workshop but in West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia, at Tasik Raban from 7-9th February 2009! Detail about the workshop is available here.

You can view his work at his Flickr.

I was told someone real professional will be involved in his workshop. So guys, those who wanna learn nature photography can join this workshop! Those who are already signup for Nature Photocamp II can still join Stockie’s programme because it will be held earlier in Feb. I believe those from West Coast will benefit a lot as the place is nearer.

I am glad that there are more and more workshop held to help people to learn this art faster & better. There are now more options for people to learn photography & to appreciate nature!

Nature Photocamp @ Ulu Dong 8-9th Nov 2008

Guys, the registration is officially opened! Come & join this free & exciting photo camp at the place where you can appreciate nature! There will be both theory & practical sessions. Anybody can join. It will be a basic but specific hands-on on nature photography including landscape & macro.Those already good at photography is not encourage to join as we afraid that this programme might bore you. We want everybody to be happy. Everybody, regardless of forum or gang. Canon users can also join in (kalau berani lah) *evil grin*.

It’s free but it’s not sponsored. Meaning you have to bear the cost for food & accommodation. If you bring your own tent then it will be a free accommodation for you. The food (5 meals) will be RM25 per day per person & the accomodation (twin sharing) is RM35 per room. Yup! Per room per day. So it’ll be RM35 for the 2 days there & RM50 for the food. Altogether only RM85 per person for this photocamp. If you bring your tent, you only need to pay RM50 for the food. Of course, you need to cater for your own transport.

Registration & other detail information is available at dR Ali’s blog. It is limited to 20 participants only.

Where is Akob’s Place? Check-out the location in relation to Raub’s town. The coordinate is N3 56.298 E102 01.685. You can drive any car to Pak Akob’s place. There will be enough parking space.

Complete programme will be developed by the multiple award winning photographer, dR Ali, very very soon (dR ali will kill me for this statement!). But rest assured, you’ll have enough time to  photograph the streams, rafflesia & macro-ing all the bugs there. No worry, you don’t need to do hours of trekking. We will just visit the nerest rafflesia area. About 1 hour santai walk.

You can shoot something like this….

This is taken just beside Akob’s Place chalet……yup…there at the place where we are going to have the talks…
