Craig Derrick, the workshop tutor writes:


"Photography is not only my profession it is also my passion. Having worked at the leading edge of photography in the UK ...... Dubrovnik, has now become adopted home and a new place of work..... With a mindful of inside knowledge and a motorbike, I pass on my experience to clients. We get “up close and personal” with the region from the back of a motorbike, the easiest and most rewarding way to explore the Dubrovnik jewels. And as I turn over the pages of my Dubrovnik book to my fellow camera enthusiasts I still get a tingle of excitement remembering those heady days when I first arrived in the Adriatic.

Passion drives me, passing on my knowledge excites me and seeing satisfied guests fulfils me. It is the colours of the Adriatic. The depth of the colour, the intensity and the pure vibrancies, I am glad I am a photographer and not a writer, for describing theses shades through the written word would be nigh impossible.. Let me introduce you to a world of luminosity, a world in full colour, Croatian colour.
