Photography workshops Naples

Photography workshops Naples

7 days photography in an exciting city
every day:
– in the morning: one workshop of 3 hours
– afternoon: second workshop or you work individual at your project
– level: advanced photographer
All the workshops are about developing a richer way to tell a story with a picture or series of pictures. The program is flexible and I adjust the schedule and content depending on your needs. Step by step guidance to a deeper understanding of your storytelling, photography and your personal voice.

Why Naples?
Because each corner of the center is loaded with history and stories. Because the people in Naples are very nice, direct and photogenic. Because you will find life everywhere in the streets. Because there are many beautiful locations with an edge without too many tourists.

Why this workshop guided by Paul Struijk?
Because he knows the city very well (10 years of experience), he knows the best locations, he understands what you need and will provide the lessons to learn that. Because as a professional photographer I know what it takes to find and create the most interesting stories. I can learn you all the skills and approach you require for a big project including how to edit (and select) it and the standards for publishing your work / or get it published.
