Intercultural Photography Seminar

Study Abroad

During the second to last week of October, I had my second seminar class called Intercultural Photography In India. This was a very neat overview of travel photography taught by Stuart Forster. He is a well known travel writer and photographer from North East England. You can check out this blog here.

I learned a lot about the basics of photography, how to set up the manual settings on a camera, and the industry of travel photography. Overall, this course was a neat opportunity to learn from a talented industry professional and to spend some time outdoors and be creative. For future students interested in studying at NHTV, I would highly recommend it.

For the final project, my task was to shot a series of photographs that could hypothetically used to market young Dutch students to the city of Breda. I have posted a few of the photos I used in my presentation, while I used some others that I have used previously in my blog – such as cuisine, and a few of street art in the area. I tried to be creative and photograph areas that Dutch students enjoy, including Valkenberg Park, clubs, shops and boutiques in the city, as well as major landmarks.
