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!
I highly recommend this experience, a Workshop One-on-One truly unique and definitely to try.
Should I rate this Workshop, I’d give it 5 stars out of 5. I really enjoyed it!
If you don´t have much time for searching for the best locations out there, if you want to be on these locations at the best time of the year/month/day and learn tricks of the trade from top-notch landscape photographer then don´t think twice and press “book now” button!
From the e-mail correspondence and follow up to all the on-location work Vieri has done for you before you arrive, everything is just making your valuable time as a student very efficient!
Particularly rewarding was the occasions where we visited the same location at sunset and then the following sunrise, which produced completely different images and helped enormously having been there before.
We had a superb workshop with full days and excellent photographic opportunities even on the few days when the weather was sub-optimal.
I believe I came away from the workshop with almost a dozen strong images to add to my portfolio. I have since registered for two additional workshops in 2018.
Vieri’s teaching style encourages individuality… with the occasional nudge in the right direction and excellent advice when unsure of technicalities or compositional problems.
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.
