Explore one of the most amazing countries in the world, learn about the art of photography, and experience a unique culture as the Photography & Media Course takes you behind the scenes of Nepal and behind the lens of a camera!

3 Weeks at The Royal Beach Camp in stunning Nepal offers a professionally taught course on the Art of Photography-from the history of the craft to the most modern technologies and techniques used to create breathtaking content.

But this Photography & Media Course is FAR more than just a lesson on how to work a camera in a classroom.

Photography

The Photography & Media Course provides lessons on a multitude of different photography techniques like

  • Action Photography/media
  • Portrait Photography/media
  • Macro Photography/media

Along with these lessons, you’ll have the opportunity to teach your own Photography & Media Course and share your new skills with your peers.

You’ll also be participating in a large, course long project that will include all of the various skills you’ve learned and content you’ve created through the Photography & Media Course for your portfolio and presentation to the group at the end!

Sustainability Work

Part of your trip will be supporting the local ecosystem and the groups who care for it by participating in sustainability work through various tree plantations in the area.

You’ll spend a day or two helping these tree plantations out in exchange for the air travel and transportation during your time in Nepal. It’s a great way to help cover costs and an even better way to dive into the intricate culture of Nepal!

Exciting Extra Curriculars

Other activities that will be dispersed throughout the Photography and Media Course are hiking, rafting, kayaking, and canyoneering.

Not only will these activities be amazingly entertaining and great team bonding, they will also be used in partnership with the Photography Lessons so that you can capture the action and beautiful scenery of Nepal while on these fun excursions!

This Photography & Media Tour is one of the most unique experiences one can have while studying abroad. From kayaking to hiking, to learning your way around a camera, to getting your hands dirty by helping out the environment, you’ll do it all during your three weeks in one of the most scenic countries in the world!
