During the four-day program, together with Sebastián, participants will share experiences, work on portfolios, improve editing skills and learn how to develop visual stories. Participants can look forward to intensive communication with Sebastián and their peers on subjects ranging from how to develop and edit a photographic project, to the nuances of the international photo market.
The workshop is a unique opportunity to learn impactful visual storytelling, further develop
personal vision, strengthen ongoing projects and gain new knowledge and contacts in an intimate and interactive environment.
