Don’t invest in camera gear, invest in your skills. It’s sounds simple enough, but still quite a lot of people are putting way too much effort in acquiring the latest and greatest cameras instead of investing in their skills to become better photographers.

No camera ever invented will make great photographs on its own. Pointing the camera towards a great location and pressing the shutter is not enough to create an interesting and captivating photo. It is your decisions based on your skills, vision and expertise that will come into play in order to create an amazing and captivating photograph from a beautiful location.

This decisions can transform even an ordinary location into an extraordinary photo, a good light in to a gorgeous light, even a boring street scene to a captivating image.

Regardless of what popular believe is, that latest camera is not the ultimate creative tool. You are.

What will this workshop do for you?

It will help you to learn the basics that really matter! I know that it can be an overwhelming process to flip through the camera’s manual, so I have created a comprehensive course to break it down to the basics, a course that is simple and understandable.

It is easy to understand, yet full of information. We will have demonstrations, before and after photos and presentations to help you learn! We will have a practice session, so we could try everything we learned. I will give personal advice to every participant and help you with information about specific photography subjects you might be interested in!

More info about my experience: I am a professional photographer working, for the past 12 years, with clients all over the world. I have extensive knowledge about photography and have done numerous workshops as well as a photography class in the “International School of Brussels“.

Reviews:

“I’m very glad I attended this workshop. It was 2 two very interesting days full of new information. As a very beginner I received the most essential knowledge about photography. I’m sure, after this workshop I’ll never look through my viewfinder in the same way!” – Neil

“I had the opportunity to take part in Ivo’s workshop and as an absolute beginner I really enjoyed it. I had the possibility to learn more about my camera’s settings but most importantly how to improve the way I take and look at pictures.
Ivo thought us on how to think out of the box when we take pictures while at the same time the need to consider some standard rules on composition.
Now more than ever I am willing to put into practice what I’ve learned! Thank you” – Cinzia
