May 2, 2018 — Following the hugely successful inaugural year of international Destination Series travel photography workshops in India and Myanmar, Leica Camera has announced the first 2018-2019 locations. Passionate and aspiring photographers will join instructor teams of renowned photographers to visit stunning locales in India, Hawaii, Colombia and Romania.

The Destination Series workshops, exclusively produced once again by Momenta Workshops, are intimate, all-inclusive, customized journeys created specifically for photographers. Each itinerary is designed to allow photographers a balance of independent exploration combined with guided photographic instruction from world-class instructors, while traveling at a leisurely pace.

“All-inclusive, small group, experiential learning is where the Leica Akademie excels," said Tom A. Smith, Director of the Leica Akademie, North America.

“Each year, our team researches new countries and events for Destination attendees to explore the world’s most gorgeous locations with their cameras," said Jamie Rose, COO of Momenta Group.
