"Far and Wild" – Powered by GDT

At the new Special Area "Far and Wild" you could discover the fascinating world of nature photography at PHOTOPIA Hamburg. In cooperation with our partner, the renowned Gesellschaft für Naturfotografie e.V. (GDT), we presented an extensive range of products for all nature lovers and photography enthusiasts on 120 m². The GDT contributed its many years of expertise and offered a unique opportunity to immerse oneself in the world of nature photography and learn from the best photographers in the industry.

On this space, GDT designed a lecture and networking area. There, experts provided exciting insights and valuable tips on nature photography - fascinating stories behind the images and first-hand info on how to improve your own photographic skills. The area also offered the opportunity to network, exchange ideas with like-minded people and professionals, and learn from their experiences. Here, questions could be asked and valuable connections made in the world of nature photography.

The GDT presented impressive photographs of the European Wildlife Photographer competition at the Area and showed on the show stage in a colorful lecture program what modern nature photography has to offer. You could be inspired by the diversity and uniqueness of nature. In addition, the GDT offered photo walks on the topic of nature photography as part of the PHOTOPIA Academy. You could use this unique opportunity to capture breathtaking nature motifs under professional guidance and to further develop your techniques.
