Photography instructor to lead Croatian tour

North Island College professional photography instructor Paul Bailey will lead a custom designed photography experience in Croatia, May

North Island College professional photography instructor Paul Bailey will lead a custom designed photography experience in Croatia, May 8 to 18, 2014.

The tour, offered through Langara College’s Continuing Studies travel program, is open to everyone, not just students registered in college courses or programs.

This limited enrolment tour emphasizes documentation of stunning landscapes and the country’s vibrant daily life.  Croatia’s rich history, picturesque scenery and attractive ancient towns await the participants’ lenses. With the sublime stretch of the Dalmation Adriatic coast and many UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Croatia has long been regarded as a must-see destination.

Experiencing Zagreb, Plitvice National Park, Zadar, Trogir, Split and Dubrovnik is like travelling back a thousand years. The Diocletian Palace in Split is one of the most significant works of late-ancient architecture and the natural beauty of Plitvice Park is truly unsurpassable.

Itineraries, costs and registration are available online at www.langara.bc.ca/continuing-studies/programs-and-courses/programs/croatia-photography-tour/index.html or by contacting Paul Bailey at 250-334-5051. An information presentation is planned for 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 26 at North Island College in the Fine Arts building, Raven Hall, room R-107B.
