Cappadocia Photo Tour Overview

Experience dozens of colorful hot air balloons floating in the sky above the iconic rock formations at sunrise. Get a taste of the experience yourself and shoot amazing photos of Cappadocia from the hot air balloon. We’ll dedicate enough time to capturing the local rugged landscapes from different vantage points.

More than 300 wild horses will surely make for a true highlight and a unique subject. Wild and semi-wild horses are led by experienced local cowboys. You will feel the ground shaking under your feet while your vision is obstructed by the huge cloud of dust illuminated by soft sunlight.

We will use horses as models on multiple shoots to add scale and give you another layer of interest to work with to make your images even more interesting.

We expect you to get a wide variety of images on this photography tour and thoroughly enjoy the extraordinary photo experience we have prepared for you.

No other photo tour in the region can match this one for its rich and varied itinerary put together by great local photographer Nuri Çorbacıoğlu and his team. Cappadocia has so much to offer to photographers like you!

As a bonus, you will taste delicious traditional Turkish cuisine that we believe you will fall in love with, along with Cappadocia as well.

Cappadocia Photo Tour Itinerary

Ideally, we will all arrive in Kayseri on the same flight from Istanbul on September 23rd in the evening. We take a transfer to our stylish 4-star cave hotel in Cappadocia and enjoy the sleep after a long journey.

On day 1, we’ll take it easy and enjoy breakfast. After breakfast, we’ll get together to meet each other and go through the itinerary to give you more information on what’s happening in the upcoming days.

The structure for days 1 to 4 will be as follows: We always start with the sunrise shoot (except for Day 1), then we’ll have breakfast at the hotel. Our lunches will be between noon and 1 P.M. and we’ll finish each day with a late afternoon and sunset shoot.

The photo tour highlights will always take place at sunrise or sunset to use the best possible light.

Various activities await us during the mid-day, such as visits to the Zelve open air museum, an authentic pottery workshop to shoot evocative portraits of local artisans, exploration of an underground city, as well as some mid-day landscape photography of the fairy chimneys.

If somebody prefers to stay on firm ground as opposed to participating in a hot air balloon flight, there will be a photographic program for them to enjoy and shoot the scenery with the balloons in the air.

The daily break time will be typically after breakfast or before the sunset shoot for at least 1.5 hours.

After breakfast at the hotel, we will say goodbye to Cappadocia and move to the airport for our flights back home on September 28th.

Post-processing Sessions in Adobe Lightroom

To provide another benefit from this photo tour, we will also run post-processing sessions in Adobe Lightroom Classic CC. We will work on your own images from the tour and unlock their full potential.

Jan will take you on a journey from unattractive and flat photos to vibrant, appealing, professional-looking pictures that will sell well.

In a short time, you’ll understand why editing your photos is so important and how to do it efficiently.

For post-processing sessions, we’ll use the time for rest and we’ll do it in small groups of two participants.

Upon request, we can also discuss various topics such as digital asset management,  backup workflow or anything else that’s of interest to you.
