12.30pm – 14.30pm Frantzeskos Karagiannopoulos

On the second day of the seminar, the instructors will monitor the progress of the tasks in private meetings, will guide and advise participants to subsequently improve their technique and aesthetic.
Sunday 3rd June 19.00pm – 22.00pm
During the last meeting, the instructors will analyze the best images taken those three days. The conclusions allow participants to develop their personal approach to travel photography.
The broad aims of the workshop are:
- To guide participants, through technical and theoretical analyzes of how to reflect the special character of each place.
