"Kyoto was my second workshop with Jonathan (after Oaxaca) and I enjoyed it very much. Jonathan was meticulous in planning the workshop and executed the planned sessions (and lunch/dinner/coffee breaks) flawlessly. He was also a delight to learn from!" - Sandip Aine

Hasan Sadigli


"It was an amazing revelatory workshop that made me think completely differently than I am used to take, and therefore its already a Bingo for me. I was happy with everything, you were generous with your time, and rightfully ruthless in selection of the photo process. " - Hasan Sadigli
