Win a trip to XPOSURE International Photography Festival 2017 in Sharjah!

Are you a Canon user? Are you available between 19-26 November 2017? Fancy a one-to-one photography workshop with Canon Explorer and professional photographer Beno Saradzic, plus the chance to attend the XPOSURE International Photography Festival 2017 in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates?

We’re offering one lucky reader all of the above, together with flights and accommodation, in association with XPOSURE International Photography Festival 2017.

About the workshop

The workshop will be held with Canon Explorer Beno Saradzic and a member of the PhotoPlus magazine team. 

Beno Saradzic is an Emmy-nominated cinematographer and internationally-awarded aerial and architecture photographer. He has attracted tremendous public attention in recent years through his virally shared time-lapse films and photographs. 

During the workshop, Beno will be guiding you on the best ways to photograph the architecture and scenery that Sharjah has to offer. You’ll be shooting in both landscape and cityscape locations, followed by a post-processing masterclass. Sharjah has a stunning desert landscape and an impressive skyline, and its historic old town is easy to navigate on foot. 

Your images and insights from the workshop will appear in the Apprentice feature in an upcoming edition of PhotoPlus: The Canon Magazine.
