The workshop in Comacchio was an amazing experience, waking up the landscape photographer in me.
We never stop learning for a second during the two days… Vieri and his wife looked after us all the time, offering suggestions always very well received (I hope my resulting images will make them happy as well).
This was my first workshop ever, and I sure picked the right one. Vieri and his wife Zeynep made the workshop most enjoyable with their knowledge of the locations selected for the daily shoots and alternate locations.
A wonderful experience which, above all, made me find the pleasure and will to photograph again.
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!
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 have been on workshops where the instructors are more interested in getting you there to fund their travel so they can do THEIR shooting. This was not the case with Vieri and Zeynep. They could not have been more gracious and attentive hosts. They actually go to the sites ahead of time on their own dime to scout shooting locations, housing and eating establishments.
Thank you for your energy and responsiveness, before, during and after the Workshop.
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.
