Tofino 4 Day Photographic Tour with Alexander Otto & Marc Koegel: $1795
Join award-winning photographers Alexander Otto and Marc Koegel for this outstanding opportunity to photograph one of the most beautiful places in North America.
Marc has been leading this popular photographic tour for the past 15 years and in the process he has collected a wealth of knowledge of the area and its photographic opportunities.
For 2022, Marc is honoured to invite Alexander Otto, who will be coming from Germany to teach this workshop with him together!
On first glance, your instructors Alexander Otto and Marc Koegel have very different photographic styles. Alex works predominately in colour, loves blue hour light, and is an expert in meticulously planning most every photograph. Marc, on the other hand, prefers minimalistic black and white, enjoys working in virtually any lighting condition, and is more of a reactor rather than a planner. What they both have in common is their excitement for art and science of photography as well as their desire and enjoyment of teaching and inspiring others.
We hope that our paricipants will enjoy and gain from having both Alex and Marc guide them.
