photography workshop Rio de Janeiro

Photography workshop Rio de Janeiro

the Rio de Janeiro workshops offer photography with passion and life. We will visit the beaches Ipanema and Copacabana, one favela, old and new architecture in several areas and the everywhere present nature, plus Sugarloaf for a great view over the bay. But above all: warm en beautiful people. We visit each day another area of the city. You will learn a lot about photography of people in the streets, architecture, landscapes and you will create a photo series with Storytelling. Guided by the best teacher and photographer who loves the city and knows where to go and stay safe you will develop your photograph style and approach.
