When shooting with David
David will concentrate on finding amazing composition and then fitting subjects into the composition making dynamic images in the process. He will also concentrate on using light, reflection, shadows and more to find the abstract qualities of the locations. For external lighting he will teach his exceptional LED video light techniques!
When shooting with Flavio
Flavio will concentrate on posing the subjects and then using composition to enhance the subjects creating powerful imagery. He will also concentrate on capturing and eliciting emotion form from his couples. For external lighting he will also teach his exceptional flash techniques!

ACCOMMODATION AND TRANSFERS
Workshop fee is low, so accommodation is not included. TripAdvisor or AirBnb are great ways to book a hotel but even better, an apartment. Cheaper than you would expect. David: “For a 2 room apartment overlooking the ocean my family paid 70 euros per night. Amazing and you have a kitchen to cook. This was the last time we were there.”
For the first 4 paid students we offer a room in our rented historic villa. It will be amazing be together for a week hanging out and talking! One catch, you must pay for 7 nights. My family and Flavio will be staying for 7 nights and the home is expensive. So if you want one of the rooms then all you have to do is say yes and agree to $800 total accommodation costs for 7 nights. You can split this cost with another student if you wish if you want to share the room. Many rooms you can split the beds away from each other for room sharing. See the historic villa here: Villa Bruna on TripAdvisor.
Our advice on accommodation: look at a map of our villa and try to get a place within walking distance if you are not one of the first people to book our villa rooms. Shuttle to and from the Dubrovnik airport and house: Taxis are very available to the house. More info soon. Parking spaces: there are 4 parking spaces for rental cars. There are also some places to park along the street.
