Towards the end of 2016 Airbnb created their “Experiences” portfolio to offer their clients something extra. I was one of the first to sign up to host such an experience in Cape Town. My experience is all about photography and the town of my roots, Kalk Bay. I will walk you through Kalk Bay while teaching you how to take better photos. Along the way I’ll share some of my insights and memories of growing up in this stunning seaside village in Cape Town.
Some recent reviews:
Three words: above and beyond. Stephen is amazingly knowledgeable (both photography and the SA area), patient, and fun. We are novice “picture takers”, purchasing our camera last year for Christmas but were a bit intimidated and overwhelmed by it. Thanks to this experience Stephen brought us up to speed very quickly. He is a great teacher and truly enjoys his craft which reflected in our entire time with him. As newly weds on our honeymoon, my wife booked this experience so I was taken by surprise when we sat down for a coffee “post shoot” to have Stephen review our photos on his laptop – I am not joking every single one (over 100). His feedback was immensely valuable, not only did we learn the camera itself but several techniques photographers use. I’m writing this review several days after the experience, and in the mean time we’ve done our safari. The safari itself was nice… but because of Stephen and this experience we were able to polish our skills and have even more fun!
“Stephen was great in communicating with us about when and where to meet. He assessed what we wanted out of his photography workshop before starting and he got it spot on. Stephen is extremely knowledgeable technically as well as with the locale. His passion is contagious. Our experience was fantastic and Steph and I would highly recommend Stephens workshop to anyone. Thank you Stephen.”
