Introduction
Two years in the making, we are glad and proud to be able to offer the Desert Fine Art Nude photographic tour and workshop.

Namibia’s landscapes are known to many by now. They are known for their harsh beauty and vastness. Travelers and photographers tend to fall in love with Namibia, Africa’s last true wilderness. Yet there is so much more than its obvious attractions.
Some say that God created Namibia in anger. They cannot possibly mean its gentle and cheerful people. During this event we travel to some of the most scenic locations (Sossusvlei,
Brandberg and Kaokoland) and combine the beauty of the landscape with the beauty of female Namibian models, creating truly unique photographic opportunities and allowing an intimate glimpse into Namibian culture, modern and ancient. It is possible for you to join us at only one of the locations or, recommended, you travel with us – guide, photographic leader and models – for the whole duration (in Kaokoland, we will work with local Himba models). If you travel with us – all of us are Namibians – you will have ample opportunity to sample modern Namibian culture. The ancient part comes in, not only in Kaokoland, but also when we re-enact pre-historic rock art: the Brandberg is home to more than a thousand rock art sites, roughly 50.000 paintings have been documented so far. Some of the paintings are of mysterious figures, probably representing shamans and spiritual, transitional beings. By using our custom body painting techniques we will recreate this old African heritage for the first time in millenia, at original locations!
There will be no formal lectures on photography, emphasis is on image critique, learning by doing. Your questions, however, will not go unanswered, be they technical, artistic or cultural.
