The following few pages will give you an overview of what to expect and provide you with details of the weekend 1 - 4 November 2018

New City

Why Valencia?

Valencia is a charming old city with unbelievable new architectural features; it is the origin of Paella with the Albufera Lagoon and original rice fields adjacent to the city; it is situated next to the Mediterranean and we should have lots of sunny days.

"The people of Valencia eat rice 6 times a week - and on Sunday they eat paella."


Wil has presented similar workshops in Rome and Amsterdam in the past. The theory has been compiled through his numerous assignments and experiences as a professional photographer over the past 15 years.

At home he does a Level 1 - 3 training where he covers some of what will be done here. This Valencia workshop counts as a Level 4 due to the amount of hours invested in learning both in theory and practical experience.

The whole course will be available online for you to keep and follow on your phone. It proofs to be quite handy when you need that reminder shooting out in the field.

Wil is going to share his secrets in lighting, working with people to bring out the best in them, the saw-dust principle on how he makes a passive income from his photography and much more.

Anyone with a passion for photography will leave here with a lot of new skills in natural and additional light, a portfolio to show off and a plan to take his / her photography further. Wil will attend to each one's individual level and make sure everyone excel. As a bonus, you might also leave with a few more friends, a paella recipe or two and even a tan to show off!
