Photography is combination of skill, art, technique, timing and context. Knowing how to match all of the factors creates a good photographer and a great photograph. If you would like to learn how to combine these factors its best to learn from the people who have dedicated their lives and careers to finding a perfect balance between these five. In the end of August you will find these 4 extraordinary individuals in a unusual place. A village in the north of Serbia called Mokrin will be their home for a week, and they will spend that week sharing their experiences and knowledge with 12 participants. Check our their biographies and figure out if you would like to be a part of this workshop. (APPLICATION FORM AT THE BOTTOM)
