AMSTERDAM – TULIPS, WINDMILLS, CANALS
Our 5 day Amsterdam photo tour is a city of contrasts, tranquil and laid back in its coffee shops, yet has a hum and hustle in the markets and a vibrant night life. The old masters and museums seem to merge seamlessly with the hot Jordaan boutiques and buzzing bars while the imposing and solemn churches don’t seen to notice the brazen red light district. We will be treated with tulips, windmills and canals.
Amsterdam has more canals than Venice, fringed with cyclists and overhung by trees, these are crisscrossed by lazy curved bridges gripped by the many bicycles used to travel around this compact city. We’ll take a boat trip through the maze of the old city’s 17th century canals to capture the romance of it’s many waterways.
We will show you how to shoot images of Amsterdams’ gothic architecture, down the rows of tall houses on it’s tree lined streets and after nightfall we will shoot the lights reflecting in the serene canals from the city’s buildings and illuminated bridges.
Spring is the prettiest time of the year to visit Noordoostpolder which is the tulip growing region of Holland. We will visit Bollenstreek near Leiden, home of the world-famous Keukenhof. Here we will treated with row after row of vibrant tulips that transform large areas of Holland into a colourful patchwork for us to capture.
We can’t leave Holland without visiting Zaanse Schans, a small village situated on the banks of the Zaan River. Within the area there are working windmills on the waters edge to photograph, little green houses, a museum and a clog making shop with live demonstrations. You can even buy your own set of clogs to bring home with a selection of Dutch cheeses.
To ensure you have a hassle free journey to our meeting point we would suggest travelling on the Eurostar.
Depending on numbers, partners and family are welcome to come and enjoy the sights and atmosphere of Amsterdam while the photo tour group are out shooting, then rendezvous back at the hotel at night. Guided sightseeing tour of Amsterdam can be arranged for partners if required.
