The masterclass is aimed at only one person, with the main objective of individual follow-up and directed to the participant over the course of a year! The masterclass will take place in the Lisbon region and the Alentejo region, which are two places I know and visit very often. In both places the climate is very dynamic, which allows you to photograph in different conditions and approach different techniques, as well as serving as inspiration to create different photographs than usual. There is the possibility of making longer trips, however, travel and subsistence expenses are added for these cases. There is a wide variety of animals to photograph in these locations. During these 12 months we will work on your photography but also on post-production to make the most of each photograph. In the field, we will try to approach the various techniques of approaching the fauna, spend long hours inside portable shelters and some fixed shelters, and also explore the aspect of macrophotography where the possibilities are infinite, exploring the aspect of photography but also the importance of conservation to eyes of a biologist. In post-production, we will address topics such as the organization of your photos, the selection of the best ones, the entire image editing process and also their sharing, placement of the watermark and their printing. You will end up with a portfolio that you will be proud to show and share, but you will also gain field knowledge.

Since its inception, the Photographing the World series has taken photographers to some of the most beautiful locations around the world with landscape photographer Elia Locardi. Part educational photography tutorial video and part cultural adventure, Photographing the World has not only showcased some of Elia's most popular shooting and photo editing techniques but it also lets you experience the life of a full-time photographer who has made an incredible career out of travel and landscape photography. Fstoppers is excited to bring you the next extended adventure in the Photographing the World series as we head to the red deserts of the western United States and the exotic mountains of Patagonia in South America.

Learn Elia's Latest Post Production Tricks in this Advanced Landscape Photography Tutorial Video

Fans of the Photographing the World series love watching Elia work through each photograph live on location, but perhaps the most valuable part of this series actually takes place long after the images have been captured out in the field. After every photo has been imported, Elia then takes you back to the post production studio where he then makes every photo come to life. Although we try to start each of these tutorials off with simple edits so anyone from any skill level can follow along, Elia quickly transitions into easy to learn yet extremely advanced editing techniques.

15 On Location Lessons

What makes the Photographing the World series so different from other landscape photography tutorials is you get to watch Elia work on location as he faces the unique challenges that each scene offers. Throughout the course of this adventure, Elia will explore 15 completely different shooting environments and explain what is and isn't working for his process and style. Sometimes common challenges present themselves like dealing with poor weather or less than ideal lighting. Other times Elia is faced with unforeseen issues like excessive tourists, moon light, traffic, intense wind, or nearby light pollution. Unlike other lessons in this series, every one of these locations is completely new to Elia which gives you the chance to watch an experienced landscape photographer tackle all of these unique situations for the first time ever, and walk you through the entire process.
