The landscapes of the county of Yangshuo are legendary across all of China.
Jutting up from the earth like the upturned jaw of a shark, the famous karst mountains scrape the sky, creating breathtaking views which serve as a constant backdrop to any visit to Yangshuo. This will be the scene for our new Yangshuo Photo Workshop, 2015!
Located near the city of Guilin, in southern China’s Guangxi Province, Yangshuo county is a perfect mix of dramatic landscapes and unique southern Chinese culture that will be the subject matter for this 6-day photographic exploration throughout the region.
During our time together we will explore the Li River which winds its way through the area, photograph traditional cormorant fishermen at sunset along the banks of the river, hike to the top of the karsts and rise at dawn to photograph the famous Dragon’s Backbone Rice Terraces.
Throughout this time you will be under the constant guidance of National Geographic Creative photographer and filmmaker, Sean Gallagher. Sean will mentor each participant, first by assessing their work at the beginning of the week, assigning them projects to focus on throughout their time in Yangshuo, culminating in a review and edit of their work which will be shown at the final evening’s slideshow and party.
