On June 18 I participated in the walk Experience and Capture the Beauty of The Hague, with Jacqueline as a guide and Rob as a photographer. I thought it was a very nice experience! I am still discovering my photography skills and my hometown, so this walk was the perfect combination for me. I learned a lot about this beautiful city and took new steps in photography. Jacqueline and Rob are both very enthusiastic and accessible so you feel immediately at ease. I’m glad I did this walk and am looking forward to the next route!
Yesterday we had the second of Jacqueline’s tours, combined with making pictures with Rob Severijnen. Like the first one, I think the combination is very nice. You get information about The Hague and what happened there, also about the princes and royalty who are not forgotten. Also, you will be helped with making pictures and you have to try and make a really good photo. I would recommend the workshop to anyone, or the tour with Jacqueline. She is very enthusiastic and entertaining about the history of The Hague. Although I don’t live in The Hague, I have worked there quite a long time. The nice thing is that you now visit the special places that you usually drive past in the car and they are full of history. In any case, I learned a lot from it.
