Photography in Almeria

17 Oct

We are so lucky here as we are near the most fantastic natural park called Cabo de Gata (Cape of Cats).  It is only around 40 minutes away and also near my favourite beach, Agua Amarga which I have written about before.

Yummy Almeria has recently teamed up with Martyn Thompson, an experienced photographer and all-round good guy to offer landscape photography courses in the Cabo de Gata and the surrounding areas.

All of the photos in this post were taken by Martyn who has a unique knowledge of the park and is the perfect person to show you how to get the most out of your digital camera (rather than like most of us, just using an automatic setting!) and will take you to the best places to create some amazing images.

As well as the Cabo de Gata area, Martyn acts as a guide to those who are interested in exploring and photographing in Europe’s only desert here in the heart of Almeria.

We love the ideas he comes up with like the “full moon” photography excursions he has recently run, where you rely on a super long exposure to capture everything by pure moonlight.

If you own a digital camera and are interested in learning how to use it better and taking control of your pictures, or just want to get out with someone who is something of a local expert and get started then please contact us via email for more details – (

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced photographer, we can organise a trip and/or lessons to help point your camera in the right direction and with some great guidance!

    Hi there Gail,

    Thanks very much for this. I thought as an addition, I’d post a link to my blog which has details of the things I’ve been up to e.g. moonlight photography.

    Hope all is well with you 🙂 x
