Flower Photography in The Netherlands: A Paradise for Photographers Who Love Flowers & Color
Are you ready for spring?
The Netherlands is such a fascinating country with many diverse photo ops at any time of the year. However, we choose to go there in the spring to photograph the profusion of spring flowers.
Any photographer who loves flowers and color will enjoy this fantastic display of jewel-toned flowers in full bloom. Bring all of your lenses — from macro to long to medium-range to wide lenses — and shoot this explosion of color super close-up or take in whole landscapes filled with tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, and irises, all painted with the brilliant paintbrush of spring. Or, if schlepping around all this camera equipment is not your cup of tea, just bring your mobile and then make a photo book that’s bursting with color when you get home.
This spring (April 14 to 22 — 8 nights) Jim and Magrit of Photography Travel Tours are looking forward to returning with a small group of photographers to revel in this profusion of color. We’ll visit acres of commercial tulip fields in full bloom as well as the largest European floral exhibit at Keukenhof which only opens its doors for two months each spring.
If flower photography in The Netherlands in the spring sounds as exciting to you as it does to us, come and join us!
We still have one space left on a very small-sized Photo Tour of 5 participants with Jim and Magrit as tour guides and photography instructors. This limited size of our group allows Jim and Magrit to offer a lot of personalized attention and instruction (if desired;-)). Take advantage of this intimate group and sign up as the 5th photographer for this spring’s tour.
There are so many different approaches to photographing this profusion of flowers.
Vast fields of tulips allow for great landscape photography where the flowers are part of the overall composition and offer exciting color combinations while focusing on a single tulip and photographing it close-up is equally exciting.
Spring and the profusion of spring flowers usually come a little earlier to The Netherlands than to the rest of Europe. Driving a rental car is super easy – most roads are straight and flat and traffic is easygoing – hotels are charming and cozy and you’ll love a visit to beautiful Amsterdam. Just watch out for the bikes!
We hope that you’ll enjoy these samples of our flower photography in The Netherlands from last spring. We can’t wait to do it all over again and maybe you too get to go and see all this beauty for yourself.
