Don’t just SEE the wonders of Nepal – CAPTURE them on Camera!
Explore one of the most amazing countries in the world, learn about the art of photography, and experience a unique culture as the Photography & Media Course takes you behind the scenes of Nepal and behind the lens of a camera!
3 Weeks at The Royal Beach Camp in stunning Nepal offers a professionally taught course on the Art of Photography-from the history of the craft to the most modern technologies and techniques used to create breathtaking content.
But this Photography & Media Course is FAR more than just a lesson on how to work a camera in a classroom.
The Photography & Media Course provides lessons on a multitude of different photography techniques like
- Action Photography/media
- Portrait Photography/media
- Macro Photography/media
Along with these lessons, you’ll have the opportunity to teach your own Photography & Media Course and share your new skills with your peers.
You’ll also be participating in a large, course long project that will include all of the various skills you’ve learned and content you’ve created through the Photography & Media Course for your portfolio and presentation to the group at the end!
Part of your trip will be supporting the local ecosystem and the groups who care for it by participating in sustainability work through various tree plantations in the area.
You’ll spend a day or two helping these tree plantations out in exchange for the air travel and transportation during your time in Nepal. It’s a great way to help cover costs and an even better way to dive into the intricate culture of Nepal!
Exciting Extra Curriculars
Other activities that will be dispersed throughout the Photography and Media Course are hiking, rafting, kayaking, and canyoneering.
Not only will these activities be amazingly entertaining and great team bonding, they will also be used in partnership with the Photography Lessons so that you can capture the action and beautiful scenery of Nepal while on these fun excursions!
This Photography & Media Tour is one of the most unique experiences one can have while studying abroad. From kayaking to hiking, to learning your way around a camera, to getting your hands dirty by helping out the environment, you’ll do it all during your three weeks in one of the most scenic countries in the world!

Like all of our exciting Educational Tour options, this tour offers participants a carefully crafted balance of learning elements (lessons, lectures, seminars, field study, etc), planned activities and excursions (cultural activities, mini-tours, sightseeing, etc) and free time for you to explore in your own way or to simply relax. This is what makes Worldaway Learning Tours so unique!
Here’s what you can expect on this tour*:
*Breakdown provided for informational purposes only. Individual experiences may differ.
Our ‘Start Dates’ represent the day that you should arrive into the country. This is officially the first day of the tour and is the day that the local guide has set aside to meet and collect the tour participants. To allow this to be a smooth process, we ask that you do your best to arrive in the morning of the official start day. If you’re having troubles finding a suitable flight, or if you are worried about your flight arrival time, let us know so that we can assist.
No. Flights are not included in the listed tour price. We have participants joining our tours from all around the world, and as such we believe that individuals can find the best deals on their own. Need some help finding flights? We can guide you to some great resources, so just ask.
*We strongly recommend that you only purchase flights once your tour has been confirmed.
Yes. It is important that you are covered in the event of something terrible (or just terribly annoying) happening. Whether it’s a last-minute flight change, losing your luggage, or falling ill while abroad, if you have proper travel insurance cover, you can sit back and enjoy the experience worry-free.
We believe that World Nomads is the best insurance provider for adventure travelers. Policies through World Nomads cover trip cancellation, medical emergencies, emergency evacuation, as well as lost, stolen or damaged personal belongings. Their policies are extremely competitive so get your free no obligation quote here!
It is each traveler’s responsibility to ensure they have the correct tourist entry visa/s and any necessary vaccinations. Both of these items depend on your own background – i.e. What passport are you travelling on? What vaccinations you have had previously? We can certainly help guide you through the process and have lots of great advice to give, so again, just ask.
Yes! While we welcome groups, families, couples and friends, our Learning Tours are also designed with individual travelers in mind. You’ll be part of a larger group which is made up of other intrepid travelers from all over the world. This is a great way to meet like-minded people and we’re sure you will make a few long-lasting friendships.
On most tours the minimum number of participants is 2 and maximum is 12. Group sizes vary at different times of the year, but generally speaking we will do our best to ensure there is at least 4 participants on each tour where possible.
In most cases, yes! There are some instances where tour participants will travel by foot, like walking a short distance between your accommodation and a learning or activity center for example, but for everything else, the transport is all arranged for you!
As mentioned above, flights, visas, insurance and vaccinations are not included – so these costs are additional to the listed tour price. In addition, you should consider the following:
- Airport taxes and entry/departure fees (if not included in your flight ticket)
- Additional food, drinks and snacks
- Money for optional activities /excursions (where available)
- Personal spending money (think souvenirs!)
The amount of additional money you may need is impossible for us to judge, and really does depend on your own spending habits, but if you have any questions about this, or want some help working out your budget, just let us know.
In most cases, no. Breakfast is often included at your accommodation, but lunches and dinners will be subject to the tour itinerary. As such, some are included, some are not, but this does of course provide a wonderful opportunity to try out the local cuisine for yourself.
Yes. It has become fairly common for tour participants to request special dietary provisions, so in most cases this can easily be catered for. If you have concerns about this though, let us know and we can discuss it with complete confidentiality.
Yes, absolutely! Free time is an important part of every tour. There is nothing more frustrating than having to follow a strict and unforgiving itinerary. Where possible, you will have free time to explore, partake in some of the local attractions and activities, or simply relax – it’s up to you!
