Edited by Travel Weekly

    Seabourn has announced the launch of its immersive “Image Masters” photography program on select voyages starting August 2024.

    The new hands-on program provides in-the-field instruction on photo composition, camera technique, editing, and retouching. It will be led by an accomplished nature photographer.

    “Having a sharp eye for photography when surrounded by natural wonders in remote regions of the world is an extraordinary way to capture the moment, and our new Image Masters program will teach guests how to best photograph the incredible landscapes and wildlife seen on our expedition voyages,” Seabourn vice president and general manager, expedition operations and planning, Robin West, said.

    “Like every element of the Seabourn experience, Image Masters is designed for guests to enjoy their time with us to the fullest and share it when they return home.”

    The photography program will be offered on select sailings of the new, purpose-built expedition ships, Seabourn Venture and Seabourn Pursuit. It will be limited to just 10 guests per voyage who will get priority access to the onboard photographer, curated outings onboard and ashore, and priority access to the photo studio.

    There will also be programs designed to polish photography skills such as:

    • Photographer-led Zodiac tours and walks
    • Exclusive lectures and workshops
    • 1:1 mentoring and coaching sessions
    • Private photo studio hours with Lightroom access
    • Photographer hosted dinner

    Guests who enrol in the program can expect to leave with an enhanced understanding of basic photography principles, editing expertise, a new community of fellow photographers and professional-level photos from their adventure.

    Seabourn will roll out the new program on Seabourn Venture’s 11-Day Fjords of East Greenland voyage, departing 5 August 2024.
