Would you like to talk seriously about photography?

Or maybe photography is just a stepping stone from everyday life for you and you are only interested in development in the context of your technical abilities?

In both cases, it is vital to find yourself in the ocean of information. It can be difficult and sometimes much more time-consuming than the learning process itself.

There is no need to waste any time.

I will help you how to find yourself in all of it.

In exchange, you will help me (through the payment for the classes) to finance and develop my photography projects.
