Namaqualand Photography Talk

Imagine flowers in their many thousands; different colors and sizes, filling the landscape, often as far as the eye can see. Barren fields change overnight into swathes of orange, yellow, white and blue. Dry tracts of land become canvasses for the photographer who travels off the beaten path.

Join Frank Krummacher as he shares his passion and knowledge about Namaqualand and the opportunities it offers the photographer.

Namaqualand is a marvel of nature in the flower season and a second home to Frank. It offers great opportunities all year round, not only in the flower season. Frank will guide you through the secret places and hidden wonders of this spectacular part of South Africa, a place close to his heart and soul where he has spent many hours making wonderful photographs. A journey through Namaqualand is an adventure.

You explore, stop, look and see. You recognise opportunities and make decisions around gear and technique to turn your creative visions into photographic realities.
