Basic knowledge of your camera and settings.
30 divided in 3 groups of 10 with an international and a Spanish master each (the teachers will change every session so each group will have the teachings of every master in the photo tour).
This ensures an optimal ratio assistant guide of a maximum of 5, as well as each assistant will enjoy at least a sunrise and a sunset with each of the guides too.
The schedule of the event will be focused on 10 photographic workshops on the ground (5 at sunrise and 5 at sunset to take advantage of the best light conditions for landscape photography) and a series of presentations, portfolio reviews and talks in the middle of the day on topics of photographic interest, such as methodology, technique, experiences, artistic vision, etc. There will also be other optional workshops such as night photography sessions.
The intermediate sessions will be plenary, however in the workshops, the attendees will be divided into groups of 10 customers that will work simultaneously in different locations to reduce the impact on the environment and receive first-hand experience from the great masters who will accompany us. There will be a minimum of two masters per group (a ratio assistant/master of 5/1).
This maximizes the quality of the experience. All participants will enjoy at least one photographic outing at sunrise and one at sunset with each one of the Masters.

Arrivals and transportation from the Airport
Monday will be dedicated to receiving you, transferring you to the hotel and if you arrive within the scheduled time, you will be able to enjoy your first photographic workshop!
Not without first holding a welcome meeting with the rest of the participants where the groups will be divided and all the activities which will take place on the following days will be explained.
The staff of the organization and the hotel will be permanently at your disposal to solve any doubt or problem that may arise.
Santander Airport is the best option to get to the Hotel Mirador La Franca, our base during the week, but you also have Bilbao and Asturias Airport at a short distance. We will take care of you from whichever of these three airports.
Should you have any query about this, just let us know and we will do our best to help you.
On the first day there will be the first workshop during sunset on the coast and then the welcome dinner.
Our first workshop of the day. Yes! There will be coffee available before leaving!
Each group will leave by bus with the guides assigned to the chosen location for sunrise. It is important to bring a sweater and a raincoat, we are in the Cantabrian coast, and it will be chilly in the mornings and with some probabilities of rain in April, but also spectacular skies.
We will be in the location before the Sun starts to rise over the horizon to get those incredible lights in the North Coast of Spain.
Another great sunrise at the paradise. Groups will keep the same composition of assistants but will keep rotating locations and guides. In that way, every assistant will experience all of the locations at every light condition and have the opportunity to be with every guide in at least one sunrise and one sunset.
Our guides will make all the efforts to get you the best photographic results taking profit of the light conditions. Weather will change from one day to the next and from one location to another. So, every sunrise will be different.

One more rotation around the selection of great locations for the sunrise between the groups.
Sunrise is always special in the Cantabrian Coast. Even in cloudy days. Enjoy one more sunrise in a wonderful location.
Your last sunrise of the event. You will not forget it.
It’s time to say goodbye and go back home with the memory card plenty of good photos, your mind plenty of good experiences and your contact list with some new valuable entries and friends.
