Photography Workshop

Limalimo Lodge and Philipp Schütz invite you on a weekend photography workshop in the Simien Mountains. The workshop will take place at Limalimo Lodge and include photo hikes around the stunning escarpment where you will get to photograph the beautiful land- scape, and a nearby village, where people are at 3,000 meters above sea level. Short sessions on landscape photography, lighting, portraiture, storytelling, and reviewing your own photographs as a group will make this a unique photography weekend for beginners and hobby photographers.

All participants should bring a DSLR or point and shoot photo camera and, if possible, a tripod.

The package price is 625 USD per person which includes transportation by road from (and returning to) Gondar airport, accommodation for two nights, food, drinks (beer, domestic wine, soft-drinks, juice, water), all training costs, park entry fees, and VAT. Participants will have to book their own return Ethiopian Airlines ticket from Addis Ababa to Gondar. The fee includes a shared twin bedroom with another participant. Participants that prefer their own bedroom will need to pay 250 USD extra.

The workshop starts on Friday (March 31) afternoon and ends on Sunday (April 2) after lunch. Participants should take the 8am flight from Addis to Gondar and can return with the 4:30pm fight on Sunday.

Philipp Schütz is a photographer and publisher based in Addis Ababa since 2012. In partnership with Limalimo Lodge he published ‘Simiens’, the first photography book about the Simien mountains, which has sold 600+ copies so far. Philipp spent a total 30 days in the Simien Mountains to document the nature and the people in and around the national park.

Perched on the edge of the escarpment, Limalimo Lodge is a beautiful place to experience Ethiopia’s Simien Mountains National Park. Combining simple luxury and elegant design in a stunning setting, the lodge promotes sustainable tourism with minimal environmental impact, and provides new opportunities to the local community.
