Creating Photography Knysna
The town of Knysna is centrally located along the coastal area known as the Garden Route. The Indian ocean to the south, and the magical indigenous forests surround this small town with a colourful history and special atmosphere. The amazing Knysna Heads form a daunting entrance to the large natural river estuary that forms the main backdrop to the town.
The team has put together a unique photographic adventure in and around Knysna. It will not only inspire and excite, but provide some incredible photographic opportunities. You will build a portfolio of images that you are unique to the area. #creatingphotography.
