If you love everyday life stories, ordinary people and still lifes, than this workshop is for you!

You will learn to to capture the magic of the moment while walking on the street, through a market or in a crowd during a national celebration day.

We are surrounded by beauty every single moment of
our days, and here you will learn how to capture these moments and transform them into poetic images.

Robert Doisneau, Saul Leiter and Martin Parr are some great examples!
