"On the Road" Lisbon Workshop with Nikos Economopoulos
March 28, 2013
by Nikos Economopoulos
"On the Road" is a series of workshops, combining spontaneous photography with the joy of the journey. They are organized for a limited number of participants, ranging from professional photographers to curious amateurs. Through the selection and discussion of the best images of the day, the participants will work towards developing their own photographic style, and see their overall approach improve each day. The goal of these workshops is to guide the participants through technical, theoretical and aesthetic issues towards developing their own photographic style.

Lisbon is more than an attractive destination inviting the visitor to view it from a variety of angles. A stunning city with beautiful architecture and an outdoors culture, it maintains a human scale. Its size is maneageable, as most places of interest are within walking distance. People move endlessly and have a warm, easy-going and hospitable demeanour. The month of June is a time of celebrations which create an even more vivacious atmosphere.

Participants are welcome to bring portfolios of past work for review.
