Frequently asked questions

Do I need to be an athlete to participate?

Not at all! The activities are suitable for everybody and can be done within all levels of fitness. Even if you do not want to participate in an activity that’s fine. Then your focus will be on taking beautiful photos of others. The program is designed for everyone who loves photography and the outdoors. The only thing you need is photographic equipment and some basic knowledge in using it.

Who is organizing the Outdoor Photography Experience?

The Experience is the collaboration between Activ8You and Costamundo, two companies in Spain. Activ8You organizes activities, summer camps and package holidays on the Costa Tropical. Costamundo is a production company of a filmmaker who has worked with a camera in over 60 countries and now works on photography and video projects in and from Spain.

What does the program look like in short?

You arrive on day 1 and leave on day 6. Day 2, 3, 4 and 5 are the program days. Each of these start with a breakfast and a briefing after which we leave to one of the activity locations. We spend the mornings doing one activity and masterclass. Then we have lunch and in the afternoons we do another one. We will take many photos so after returning to the hotel you will have time to select and retouch these. During and after dinner we will show each other the results and talk about them.

What can I learn during the Outdoor Photography Experience?

Everything you learn is about improving your photography. You will receive tips about daylight and the golden hour. How do you use a natural landscape as a background? How do you shoot fast action? You learn to photograph in and around water. Also short workshops about lenses, equipment, selecting and retouching images will be taught. Be creative and learn while doing and trust us: you will be inspired!
