"From the West, a description of the Island of Helgoland touches me both for its beautiful instances of inorganic an organic nature, the consolidated values of prehistoric life, and as still fresh evidence for the survival and work of the eternal spirit of the age."

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
24th October, 1827



Helgoland is an oasis of quietness and unique natural monument. There is nothing to compare it with!

Formed of red sandstone, the island rises 200ft above sea level and is largely covered with grazing land. With its unique and tremendous flora and fauna, but especially Germans only "Bird-Rock", the "Lummenfelsen", it attracts birders from all over the world.

The rock is named after the Guillemots which live in uncountable numbers at the rock and put their only egg in nests in breath-taking hights.

Guillemots are high-sea birds, only visiting the island at breeding time. After that, the parents care for the children at sea and swim or fly to Skandinavia.

The Bird Rock

You will have the opportunity to photograph other seabirds as well, such as Kittiwakes and Northern Gannets!


In 1720, the natural connection between the Dune and the Island was destroyed by a storm flood. The Dune is since a paradise for dedicated nature photography.

Expect grey and Harbour seals in their natural environment, and bring your macro-lens to discover the biosphere of this little nature reserve

At "bad-light" time there will be daily theory sessions where you will learn about exposure, image composition and presentation, equipment choice and handling.

And you will have the opportunity to show a small number of your photos for critique.



The teaching style of Claus Brandt, your award-winning workshop leader, is highly informative. You will leave this workshop with a solid understanding of the basics and most advanced principles of wildlife photography.

Book now to reserve your place on this highly demanded workshop!
