Approach

I keep group numbers small so that it's easy for everyone to meet each other, interact and ask questions. While it's important to understand the technical aspects of photography, it's the artistic, emotional and aesthetic aspects that matter most. Knowing and applying the right techniques and visual language will always make far more difference than the equipment you use. I always encourage my student to experiment, try something different and not worry about making mistakes. 

Maximum of 8 students.
