The meetings will include various topics, from clarifying and defining your vision, to set your creativity free, to examining and evaluating your work. We will discuss about prints vs digital presentations, the importance of focusing on a specific audience and how to create the best final presentation.

My areas of interest are: documentary photography, photojournalism, street photography, visual story-telling, landscape, portrait and self portrait, conceptual photography.
