A multi-level workshop program on the depiction of life in a city full of contradictions, Athens. Though courses on photojournalism, street photography and photowalks in selected places of special interest, participants will explore known and unknown corners of the city and will converse through their lens with its inhabitants. Atmosphere, light, each place’s characteristics and each person’s quirks offer a unique photographic experience, while the different teaching approaches of the experienced instructors offer new exiting viewpoints to look at our city again.

The workshops aim to teach participants to observe and interpret the environmental elements but also to approach people so that they can capture the “portrait” of a place in their own personal way. Anyone from an experienced photographer to a beginner with basic technical knowledge can participate.

For each workshop, the option to buy the corresponding book (in English) for further studying is available.

In a hurry to be a photographer? Early entry in all workshops one month before the end of registrations, with a 20% discount.
