Vieri is a true professional and a wonderful person as well as being very prepared.
Vieri’s chosen locations were landscape wonders, the Workshop’s organization was perfect: I hope to be fortuned and privileged enough to participate in other Workshops with you guys, thank you from the bottom of my heart!
On Skye, all areas were very beautiful and all were carefully selected based on our wishes and the weather forecast to give us the best possible captures!
Vieri will always give you good theory foundations and answer to all your questions. This includes everything on how to work a new location, set up your camera and equipment, handle the light and finally how to post process the images when you get back home.
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 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.
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!
Vieri guided us with great experience and attention through itineraries and alternative routes to get to photograph from very different angles than usual, always away from the classic “touristic” spots.
Though I had already been dabbling with filters for some years, there were many eye-opening moments with new learning. This, combined with stellar locations, gave me the photo-week of the year!
A Workshop with a capital W, great organization and a fantastic tutor. We’ll meet again… without a doubt!
