Travelling with us means experiencing first-hand the stories you will later tell. But not only that. It also means acquiring those fundamental tools to do it best.
Because it is not enough to have lived a story to be able to tell it.
Training on travel – on the road or residential – are unique experiences to get involved and redefine one’s storytelling, reportage, and photo-video journalism skills.
Training, teaching, experience, experimentation, study.
Lots of field work – alone or in small teams – and the correct theory because getting your hands dirty is a great way to learn something.
Our Classes enable you to gradually acquire the essential narrative techniques and tools for telling a story. But not only that: they are also an opportunity for discussion and growth.
I got to know the photographic and inner sides of myself that I did not know.
We worked, thought day after day, and after the first few days I began to have certainty about what I was going for, what story.
It was an ‘insertion’ in all spheres, cultural, human, and emotional.
It was an experience difficult to forget for a thousand reasons: firstly, I met a new me.
Not a photographic journey as many might believe, but an all-round experience in documentary photography and storytelling.
Every time I attend these events, it almost seems to paralyse me, because everything is ‘too much’, even the most trivial thing, so I need time to metabolise and make every moment, every word, every silence my own, and I never get tired!
Orlini can give, he can give a lot… Thank you.
Thank you Barbara for joining us so simply, and for your knowledge that you generously gave us.
Thank you Lisa for your infinite sweetness. Thank you all, so different and incredibly unique for the comparisons exchanged.
I firmly believe that Gabriele’s superpower is his strong empathy, capable of breaking through each person’s shell, drawing out emotions and making them evolve until they become tangible through photographs, making such an intimate process, which is often reluctant to emerge, very simple.
What I am saying is that this is not just a trip or a traditional workshop. It is an experience of life, it is a surrender to other realities with strength and delicacy at the same time.
Gabriele is professionalism, attention and sensitivity, unsparing. Everything you are looking for in a truly immersive and authentic workshop can be found here.
I felt the need for this kind of experience.
I had the opportunity to photograph and experience very different situations, to document what I did not know, to fill my eyes with wonder.
I would start again tomorrow.
Gabriele is a drug… healthy, strong and of excellent quality.
Getting to know Barbara Silbe, listening to her, absorbing her charisma, passion and professionalism has been a strong charge for me and I am not easy to charge.
How wonderful to spontaneously confront and open your mind to what you follow and love.
Thank you to all of you who, with simplicity and the same enthusiasm as me, contributed to making these days saturated with colour.
A special thank you to Lisa who performed her job quietly, silently and made everything smooth and perfect with great sweetness and kindness.
I love people who can work in the shadows!!!
Many thanks to Gabriele and to the Barbara because there was never a lack of “something more” in their style of conducting this workshop, an additional stimulus, gentle but intense, thoughtful and encouraging accompanied, however, always by the invitation of an almost Calvinistic rigor to an individual commitment to a “work well done, well thought out and well conducted.”
Finally, thank you for the serenity that accompanied these days, which is not usual in my experiences.
Although I have been photographing for many years, I felt the need to dialogue, discuss, dig deep, increase my photographic knowledge, talk about photography 24 hours a day (almost), and learn again and again!
My continuous ‘need’ was met beyond my expectations thanks to Gabriele’s simplicity and professionalism.
