Working with Benedicte Pep and Robin was highly inspiring and motivating. They all had very different approaches and backgrounds in photography, that were at the end really complementary, and helped us to have a complete and totally new vision on our personal work.

It was a great experience and a chance to benefit from different approaches of each of the tutors, but also to know how they work with the press and different organizations on development of their own projects. Those were stimulating, inspiring and intense moments.

I'm very satisfied with the workshop, it was well organized, beneficial for our artistic work and for a development of our activity as photographers also on administrative and commercial level, which is often neglected during this kind of trainings. Everything happened in a friendly atmosphere and I'm now even more eager to continue my projects and my work as a photographer.

This workshop helped me to re-focus on my objectives, the reasons I want to be a photographer and the steps needed to succeed. It strengthened my confidence on editing and presenting my work (which I successfully put in practice the following day), and on pitching projects.

It was inspiring and motivating. Benedicte, Robin and Pep know how to spread their love for photography, their uniqueness and their precious insights in a way that participants can interact easily with them. Clement was an amazing speaker very empowering and lucid : giving us precious and concrete tools for the independent worker we are becoming. They were complementary.
