What is "Surf and Photo"?

Surf and Photo is a new and fresh idea to combine the surf lessons with the best sightseeing of Fuerteventura with the teaching of Mauro and Emanuele, Homegrown's professional photographers!

How does it work?

It’s very simple, every morning, you'll go normally surfing with Homegrown and in the afternoon, Mauro and Emanuele will bring you to some of the most scenic locations of the island, helping you to get the most from your photography!

Where do you go and what do you shoot?

Sunsets on the beach, the volcanoes, and all the beautiful sightseeings that make Fuerteventura a unique place in the world.

Main subjects

You will learn how to use a D-SLR camera (reflex), the principles of light, aperture/shutter speed relation, depth of field, lenses and cameras, how to create a good composition in photography, shooting techniques (landscapes, travel, action, and portraits), image processing, fun, and tan!

Included excursions

Everyday in the afternoon, you will shoot some of the most scenic locations of the island and there you will have the chance to shoot with the help and tips of two professional photographers. Depending on the light and weather conditions, you will be taking pictures of breathtaking sunsets, volcanic lunar landscapes, red mountains meeting blue lagoon, and all the beautiful sightseeings that make Fuerteventura a unique place in the world. (Fuerteventura has been declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 2009).

This course is offered from beginner to experienced photographers and provides elements on the following subjects:

  • The principles associated with light, lenses, and cameras
  • How to create a good composition in photography
  • Shooting techniques (landscapes, travel, action, and portraits)
  • Image processing

Every participant must bring his own equipment usually used to shoot. Homegrown also suggests bringing a tripod for low light conditions and long exposure photos. (Check with your flight company if you can bring your tripod on board as hand luggage). If you have one, it could be helpful to bring your laptop to download the photos and help you in the selection of the best shots.

To better follow the post-processing demonstration and if you don’t have them already, you can download Adobe’s software trial version (Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom) from Adobe.
