Thank you for all your time and efforts with my daughter at the photo shoot. Patryk struck the perfect balance of professionalism (to ease a nervous dad’s concerns) and fun and enjoyment in your work (to make,my daughter’s experience outstanding). We both really enjoyed the day and the learning you provided throughout. – Derek Lea
This was a fantastic meeting and I learned a lot about the world of Fashion Photography. Patryk is an experienced and knowledgeable photographer. I highly recommend this course to any photographer looking to improve their skills. Meeting the other members of the workshop helped as well! Sharing in experiences and learning that others had the same challenges as I have been having not only helped build my confidence as a photographer but gave me a support group! – Alex Larente
This was a great workshop!!! Patryk is knowledgable and excellent in teaching you from an insider look on how to maneuver through the fashion industry with tips and constructive feedback on improving skills. Fashion photographies technical concepts and industry specific knowledge is very complex and he teaches it a very well paced and easy to understand manner. Unlike other photography workshops, this is not paparazzi style shooting. It is very focused and well thought out so you learn the technical aspects and improve on the skills you already have. I also learned how to successfully work with models, agencies and other creative parties so a shoot comes together seamlessly. – Hugh Tull
