Namibia is one of the few places in the world where you can – almost – touch the Milky Way. I am enthusiastic about inviting you and your loved ones on this unique and extraordinary journey to the country where culture and nature merge into amazing sceneries.
In a few words, don’t miss this unique chance to touch the stars.
Located in southwestern Africa, Namibia is an ideal destination for photographers looking for an unforgettable African experience.
We invite you to join us on the 8-day adventure with expert Tom D. Jones to explore Namibia. From the shifting sand dunes, cracked clay valleys and night sky photography to desert aerial photography, the effortlessly beautiful landscapes with an unparalleled blaze of colours make this Namibia workshop a memorable experience.

Highlights of the Namibia Workshop:
Day 1, 2 – The lack of light pollution makes Namibia the ideal place for night sky photography and stargazing. In the Night Photography Workshop, you will shoot the Milky Way and stars from Spitzkoppe.
Day 3 – To feel the freedom of riding through one of nature’s great wildernesses, we will take you on a 90 minutes guided quad bike adventure to explore the Namib desert in Swakopmund.
Optional helicopter aerial photography offers you opportunities to fly over the coast of Shipwrecks (Day 3) and dune landscape in Swakopmund (Day 4) and Sossusvlei (Day 5).
Day 6 – Explore one of the most iconic and photogenic places on earth – Deadvlei, a clay pan where the skeletal trees and cracked ground form some fascinating geometric patterns.
Day 7 – Climb up to catch the first sun rays over the giant Dune 45, an awe-inspiring 85-meter high sand dune, and capture the panoramic views of Dune Valley.
