FEEL LIKE YOUR PICTURES ARE
NEVER GOOD ENOUGH TO SHARE?
Do you ever wonder why your images are never to the level of your friends’ or other people pictures? How do they mane such crystal clear, well composed and perfect photographs?
Have you ever lost the perfect moment to capture your kids making silly faces or something adorable? These precious moments are gone forever.
Photography is art, but it also it is a skill that you can learn.
No amount of reading or watching tutorials and videos on YouTube will give you the advantage of actually being at the spot you want to take a picture of, with a professional photographer to guide you each step of the process.
It is one thing to try to remember what you read or saw on your favorite photo channel and to actually be outdoors, on the street or take pictures of somebody, while having a professional tell you how to compose the image and set your camera.

WE HELP YOU BECOME A BETTER PHOTOGRAPHER
WHY FLY TO BULGARIA TO IMPROVE YOUR SKILLS AS PHOTOGRAPHER
This is not a question that can be answered the same way for every person. Each of us has different understanding of what a good picture is, different ambitions and goals.
If you think of the pictures that you liked, it is easy to realize that it was the place, the scene, the person or the action frozen in the frame, that made you stop and look.
The equipment and the techniques are one thing, but if you shoot the same place, which has already being photographed by other thousand enthusiasts, there isn’t much you can do. Such spots were most likely already photographed from all possible angles, in different light conditions, and already posted on many of the social platforms.
We offer unique spots in a country yet to be discovered by other enthusiast photographers. You will have the unique advantage to be picturing new places, emerge in a remote culture, while being guided and mentored by a professional photographer.
