WHO SHOULD JOIN?

This bootcamp is for photographers of all skill levels. No matter if you’re a beginner or an expert, you are guaranteed to find a lot to learn and benefit from this bootcamp. This program is designed to get you started in your journey of professional photography as a possible alternate, or an additional source of income.

Learning about photography by reading a tutorial online while you sit on your couch is certainly one way to improve your photography. But actually getting out there with like-minded individuals and exploring your talents as a photographer in a jaw-dropping location is definitely worth the time, money and effort!

WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN THIS BOOTCAMP?

Some of the reasons why we recommend joining a formal bootcamp are:

  • You have the chance to learn a lot in a relatively short period of time.
  • This is a practical workshop — theory of photography and post-processing will come alive in front of your eyes and you will be the one executing it.
  • You will be processing and creating images like pros and will learn end-to-end skills in bringing your vision come to life.
  • You will learn the most complex post-processing divided into simplified 4 sessions of over 8 hours with ample time to practice what you learn on the images you have shot.
  • You will get 1×1 attention with your mentor during this time and will have a lot of time to clarify your doubts and cement your skills.
  • You’re out and about in some of the most spectacular locations.
  • Visiting iconic locations like Hampi as part of a photography workshop only amplifies the inspiration you find. You feed off the energy of the other photographers and the group leaders.
  • You find another degree of passion for photography and landscapes that you didn’t know existed.
  • Revelling in the success of your peers as you share images and offer feedback to one another further inspires you to be better too.
  • A problem in modern photography is that too many of us are wrapped up in trying to replicate what others do. We see images on Instagram and try to redo what’s already been done.
  • Workshops like this actually allows and focuses more on developing your own voice and photographic style. In the supportive environment of a photo workshop, you feel free to experiment with your approach and learn new ways of seeing the world through your camera.
  • What’s more, you can find new ways of challenging yourself to learn technical or artistic skills that will improve the quality of your photography.
  • Finally, the immersive nature of a photography workshop makes all this possible in a very short period of time. If you want to quickly improve your skill set and produce images with a wider visual appeal, a photography workshop is the way to do it!
