Teachings, work on the landscape and conversation happened under the sign of pleasantness and fruitfulness.
The small size of the group did foster a very intense learning and discussion culture, while having lots of fun.
I highly recommend you take one of Vieri’s Workshops; it will improve your work with big leaps!
The biggest thing I’ll bring with me after these three days is the idea I got from you about the importance and value of anticipating. Not only in terms of waiting for long exposure times, but anticipating the light, the moment, the wind’s changes, the arrival of a wave.
Our tutor Vieri Bottazzini’s teaching is technically perfect, clear in his explanations and always available to answer questions and clarification requests.
I went to a Leica Akademie Workshop with Vieri Bottazzini full of my own insecurities, but I have been given invaluable incentives to take more risks. Thank you!
An experience that gave me new motivation and the will to keep going.
Vieri does an outstanding job of having in-depth knowledge of the best locations, together with practical advice on how to capture striking images and teaching all aspects of landscape photography.
Death Valley is definitely one of my personal highlights since I´m interested in photography, not only because of the beautiful scenery of the landscape but also because of the way how Vieri conveyed his opinion what landscape photography can be about.
I have been very happy about this Workshop that went a bit out of the classic “street” philosophy associated with Leica, Vieri showed us that with these exceptional cameras you can create also different images.
