days.

villages in Iran where we will be photographing them in beautiful morning light and also during blue hour. No visit to
Iran is complete without a visit to some of the most beautiful places of worship on the planet, with its intricate artwork
and porcelain work including the Vank Cathedral, Jameh and Imam Mosques and more. We also spend some time photographing
the bridges of Isfahan, one of the best places to do street and morning photography. From Isfahan, we transfer to Yazd,
another cultural hub where we will learn more about the mysterious wind towers, water reservoirs and witness some of the
earliest man made caves in this part of the world.

Day 5-6 (B,L,D) - From Isfahan, we continue further south towards the ancient site of Persepolis just outside Shiraz, the
ceremonial capital and cultural heart of the Archaemenid Empire almost 3000 years ago as we conduct a photowalk pass the
giant monolithic ruins where our instructor teaches you the best ways to compose your photos. We will base ourselves in
Shiraz, a glorious city and visit the amazing light show of the Nasir Al Mulk, one of the highlights of the trip.

Day 6-8 (B,L,D) - Transfer to the city of Kerman to photograph the Aag-e-Bam, the largest Adobe building in the world with
its charasmatic Citadel. Evenings are spent at the breathtaking Kaluts where we will spend most of our time photographing
amazing sunsets.

Day 9-11 (B,L) - Return back to Tehran with fond memories of our adventure where we will do a photo critique to ensure
your photography is on the right path. By afternoon, we visit the grand bazaar of Tehran for some last minute shopping
before transferring to the airport for our return flight back to Singapore.
