Cruise and Learn: Windstar Offers Photography Courses to Passengers

A great vacation is often remembered years later by the pictures taken and the memories associated with them. Not to mention, nowadays people are obsessed with posting pictures to Instagram, Facebook, and most other social media outlets. The better the photo, the more likely people are to comment.

Windstar is offering new, complimentary photography programs on board select cruises in 2015 for you to hone your photography skills! These programs will allow you to create phenomenal pictures that everyone will rave about when you return home.

John Greengo—a photographer who specializes in travel, landscape and nature photography as well as photographic instruction—will provide seminars on board, teaching you how to use equipment and capture the best images possible on your vacation. Seminar topics will include:

  • Photo Basics—simple steps to better photos
  • The Photographer’s Eye—how photographers look at the world
  • Seven Steps to Great Photos—non-technical steps to better pictures
  • Travel, Adventure, Photography—a collection of stories on travel and photography.

Additionally, John will be participating in select shore excursions, providing hands-on instruction while photographing on location in port. John will also be available during dinner to chat and dine while providing additional insight to his craft.

“I have traveled all seven continents and have found that my favorite mode of transportation is by boat,” says John. “I love exploring the individual ports and having enough time to get lost before I have to return to the ship. I am most looking forward to getting lost in these incredible cities with guests and taking amazing photographs. Every destination has its own unique experiences and visuals; these components are what makes travel photography great.”
