August News Update – A chance to join a unique workshop with the best in their fields – two truly masters

Exploring together with the best has always been my greatest ambition. I can’t think about two more important photographers of our time than James Nachtwey and Steve McCurry. It, therefore, is a great and “Better Moment” to announce that you have the chance to join a unique workshop with the best in their fields – two truly masters.

There is a snake in paradise – only a few seats left!

Great hope to see you,
