What makes a good photographer?

Being so passionate about a subject matter that you can bring it to life in an image.

What is the approach you take in your tours?

After assessing your level of expertise with the camera, I’ll set you some tasks to improve your style of work, constantly working with the elements of composition. The mission is that each tour participant learns in relation to their camera, and takes their work to the next level.

If you could give someone only one photography tip, what would it be?

Take more photos. One of the best ways to improve your photography is to capture as many images as you can.
