Vieri is a really wonderful person, a true professional but with a humility that is rare to find nowadays.
Vieri is not one of those photographers that likes you, as a student, to pay the bills for him getting new images – he just wants his students to learn as much as possible during his workshops!
If you, like me, think that spending a week or so speaking and breathing photography all day long and shooting at gorgeous locations seems like a best bet for your precious time out of the office, then again, stop reading my review and press the booking button now!
Vieri is a true professional and a wonderful person as well as being very prepared.
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.
Vieri’s suggestions, always offered with tact, never made me feel like a student, but like a colleague. What could sound like just an exchange of observation at first, in retrospect revealed itself to be priceless teachings.
For all of you thinking about joining a workshop – think no longer. Let 2018 be the year when you took your photography to the next level together with Vieri Bottazzini.
The afternoon image review sessions were very helpful, encouraging self-criticism of our images followed by suggestions on processing to bring out the best in them.
Your previous experiences in Death Valley meant we wasted little time chasing around and were able to go directly to places of photographic interest. In a location as vast as Death Valley this was imperative to a successful workshop.
I participated with curiosity and high expectations in the Workshop that just ended in Comacchio. Organisation was precise, accurate and overall perfect. My expectations have been fully met!
