According to the information  supplied by the Directorate of Press and Public Relations Office of Near East University, the Photography Club, which is affiliated with the Student Dean Office of Near East University, organized a technical photograph and entertainment camp among the pine trees at the forest located in the north of Güzelyurt.

During the camp which lasted three days, the Photography Club counselor Hüseyin Aşkaroğlu provided the 20 club trainees with training regarding long exposure star trail, macro photography, long exposure photography and similar shooting techniques. The club members had opportunity to put what they had learned into practice by taking plenty of photographs in the wonderful environment of nature.

The club members sang songs with music and enjoyed themselves by gathering together around the campfire at nights.  The club members also carried out an environmental cleanup and enjoyed a nature walk.
