Capture sunrise at the peak of a volcano, vibrant religious ceremonies and the true spirit of authentic Bali on an unforgettable photographic journey
Join Alila Manggis for 4-or 8-night photography workshops this June
One of Bali’s most authentic resorts, the east-coast hideaway of Alila Manggis will run a series of photography workshops this June, offering budding photographers the opportunity to truly get under the skin of Bali. Led by award-winning LA-based photographers George Simian and Beata Bernina, the workshops will provide personalised guidance on the best techniques to capture the meaning and beauty of each photographic situation, whilst providing insider access to some of the most remarkable spots on the island.
Set amidst a coconut grove near the village of Candidasa on the undiscovered east coast, Alila Manggis represents all that is authentic Bali with access to aspects of the island that have remained unchanged for centuries. From a night-time climb to the top of Mount Batur to photograph the sunrise from its peak and eat breakfast cooked by the heat of the volcano, to enjoying behind-the-scenes access to Balinese Kekak dancing performances; each experience offers the chance to capture an intimate portrait of Balinese life.
Other highlights include: a visit to a unique village preserving the ancient culture predating modern Hindu Bali; the chance to experience Bali’s legendary Mother Temple Besakih and the Lake Bratan Water Temple; the opportunity to attend joyous religious ceremonies and photograph farmers on terraced rice fields, as well as have your future foretold by the real holy man from best-selling novel and film ‘Eat, Pray, Love’.
