Testimonials from our attendees:

Great Practical course, which develops the creative skills without overlooking the technical side of things. Very Intense but it works as real first push into this world. Extremely informative and useful. (Augusto Green)

Palmer&Pawel

I found this workshop very different to many others since this one is based more on creativity and not too much on technicalities, whilst still covering the main aspects of it.
The session flowed very well and time flew. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely be back for more. (Luis Oliveira)

Palmer&Pawel

This course which is based on Creativity and creativity methods on a fashion photo shoot session, covered several lighting setups, set building, model directing and taught us to look out for things i had never considered before. By far the most complete and fun workshop i have attended in a very long time. It has altered the way i look at photography and has opened a world of new ideas and opportunities i had never thought of before. (Mikael Willis)
