Learn to take photos like the ones shown above from our 2017 Floating Photo Workshop cruises.

Renowned travel photographer Mark Edward Harris—whose award-winning work has been featured in Vanity Fair, Conde Nast Traveller, LIFE, the London Sunday Times Travel magazine and numerous other publications—will serve as Uniworld’s very own photography instructor and mentor throughout the cruise. Designed for beginner to intermediate photographers using either digital cards or film, these workshops will feature:

  • Inventive photo “assignments” for each day of the cruise
  • Opportunities for guests to shoot side-by-side with Mark during shore excursions
  • Insightful tips, “cheat sheets” and helpful one-on-one critiques
  • Lectures on how to best capture beautiful landscapes, cityscapes, portraits of local people in their environment, and travel photo essays that tell a compelling visual story

These exclusive Floating Photo Workshops present a rare opportunity to see a master at work, while cruising through some of Europe’s most picturesque regions and enjoying new things to experience and photograph each day. And for aspiring travel photographers, nothing could be more convenient than cruising onboard a luxurious floating boutique hotel.

Whether you come aboard with a smartphone, a point-and-shoot camera, or professional-grade equipment, you’ll return home newly inspired and informed, with wonderful photos to share of your all-inclusive river cruise. Join us!
