andrew-brownAlthough aimed mostly at beginners and those with an intermediate knowledge of photography, anybody interested in using the beauty, variety and inspiration found at the centre to improve their photographic skills, is welcome. The basic technical aspects will be briefly taught and explained, and retreatants will use this knowledge, along with a Zen type of mindfulness and awareness to endeavour to remove some of their inhibitions and improve the way they understand and look at photography. The emphasis will be on fun and looking at the art of photography with a different mindset. Please bring a camera, a tripod, flash units, spare batteries - and a sense of humour.

Andrew Brown received his first camera at eight years old and has retained his love for photography since then. He thinks of himself primarily as a travel photographer, which effectively covers many genres: food, architecture, street, portraiture, landscapes and wildlife. He occasionally writes too and has had articles published in "Food and Home Entertaining" magazine. A regular visitor to the BRC, he tries to apply Zen and Buddhist philosophy to his photography and believes in getting the picture right the first time. He also leads groups of unsuspecting photographers into the markets in Durban, hoping to show them how the other side lives.
