Vieri is an excellent teacher, always patient and attentive both on the field and in all the post-processing sessions.
Vieri Bottazzini, whom I admired for his wonderful landscape work, turned out to be a great person as well, kind, friendly, always smiling and, as only a wise man can be, never arrogant.
Should I rate this Workshop, I’d give it 5 stars out of 5. I really enjoyed it!
The event was so convincing that together with a friend of mine I immediately did sign in for the next class with Vieri and Zeynep!
Hospitality and organisation have been perfect, and every day different from the previous ones, with a spot on choice of itineraries in amazing Death Valley.
I had never heard of the Isle of Arran. (…) When I saw the photos on Vieri’s web page I knew I had to go. It did not disappoint. Nor did the workshop hosts. Vieri and Zeynep were wonderful hosts.
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 highly recommend you take one of Vieri’s Workshops; it will improve your work with big leaps!
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 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.
