The Andalucia School of Photography is planning more 'Art and Technique in Photography' courses at the Hacienda San Rafael, so watch this space or contact us for more information.

Hosts Sue Callister and Alberto Saro established the Andalucia School of Photography in 2007 in the belief that to teach well it is necessary to give the highest level of personal attention. The courses are designed so that the maximum ratio of class size is six students per instructor, allowing an unrivalled level of personal guidance in a relaxed environment.

You will learn to make the best use of the controls on your digital camera and how to best express what you are seeing and feeling through your photography. Capture spectacular landscapes, beautiful buildings, forests and stunning sunsets and learn new photography skills that will stay with you long after the holiday is over.

And what better location to put new found skills to the test than the stunning and diverse scenery of Andalucia, from the rugged limestone landscapes of the Sierra de Grazalema to atmospheric architecture and charismatic characters in Seville.
