Description

Photography is one of the best excuse to travel worldwide.

You are passionate about photography, You are passionate about travel.

Combining these two passions is explosive. There is no better way to travel than looking the World through a lens.

Being prepared, improving your skills in advance is the most efficient way to enjoy both passions at the same time.

Our Travel Photography Storytelling workshop will give all you need to bring home better photographs, that will not only record memories but describe the place visited, the culture, the colors, the atmosphere and more. A real Story in pictures.

SECRETS & TIPS, spend three days learning tips from a National Geographic Photographer how to bring back better photographs of your travel experience.

Massimo has been traveling for Nat Geo for 28 years, over 81 countries, describing Human Culture, beauty of Nature and Wildlife. Learn the delicate approach of Myriam Casper that can engage with all kind of people anywhere. Myriam has been photographing for years the humanity of Vancouver as other places in the World. She loves the energy and inspiration that traveling brings to her life.

We start with a lecture where all the most important topics about travel photography will be explained with a myriad of examples. Through our photographs you will be guided to create your own travel story on field. Then, all together, we go out "on assignment". We will follow you, to give instant feedback providing guidance step by step. The next days we review your production. It's very important to go through the photographs produced to bring you to the next level.

Why to come with us through our student's words:

Gaye Leggat : They were both passionate about sharing their knowledge with the students present. The group was small and individual attention superb. The best part for me was the hands on directing of point of view and compositional guidance on the spot and to the point. Myriam and Massimo did not carry cameras themselves and focused 100 percent on giving all their energy to their students. They are talented, committed and accomplished photographers. It was such a pleasure meeting them experiencing their generosity and inspirational personalities. My description of them as teachers-giving, sincere, generous, knowledgeable, technically helpful, passionate about photography and focused on the needs of others

Bill Green: I lead a street photography group on the west coast, and I'm always teaching; always learning.
I count myself one of the fortunate ones. Massimo Bassano and Myriam Casper gave me the new kick that I needed. Massimo considers himself to be a people photographer, and his humanistic side came through. I enjoyed his humour; I enjoyed his willingness to share. Myriam conveyed a connection to her subjects; the desire to know more about the subject. Both showed that it's one thing to take a photo; it's another to be creative about it.It was a great experience. Thank you both.

Markos Tetradis: I learned subtle, many valuable things about photography. From Myriam I got a lot of value about the importance of interacting and connecting with subjects, especially by observing the quality of her work during the lecture. From Massimo I learned very subtle things, especially by observing him during the field. I’ve never seen such a wise approach in photography before, truly honoring the reputation of being a Nat Geo photographer. This was very inspiring for me as I want to become one myself. He seemed genuinely helpful in all aspects.

Michael Shevloff: I liked the format of this course. The lecture material was direct and included a lot of examples. Massimo and Myriam were open to questions and discussion as we went through the material. The practical part of the course was fantastic. I especially enjoyed how they would teach me and offer suggestions as I took photos. The are great company and the whole day was fun, friendly and full of learning.

Garry Lunn: Thank you so much for a great day. I really enjoyed. This was my first venture into this type of photography so a steep learning curve for me. And I learned so much and it was so neat to see you both in your element. You, Massimo and Myriam, are such pro’s at what you do and so comfortable with the scene. You are both so giving of your talents and I really appreciate all the feedback. You were very patient and very hands on, so I came away a lot more confident and understanding of the craft. It was great to watch you in action and feed off your energy. Really enjoyed the time and learned so much. This may sound a bit silly but I did learn some life lessons from you both through observation. I too have built my career on one to one contact and creating relationships over the last 40 years. But as time passes, one can get lazy, and when I saw you with your enthusiasm in what you do, a regeneration of my desire to be more ”curious” as you say. Thank you.
