12 points goes to...’ Tomas for tireless persuasion of his ‘students’ that the ideas are all around them and there’s no need to go to the Moon or any other special place to catch a nice frame, that it is all perfectly possible right here as long as you are looking around and trying; that emphasis on freedom and spontaneity was really cool. Another 10 points for his ability to teach adults in a group and to hold their attention for the entire evening – that’s something Tomas has learned perfectly, 4 hours pass like just over thirty minutes, and if I went on “experimenting” after the course until 3 am myself, what else can be added... J There’s more than enough of information for the beginners, presented in a clear and logical sequence, extremely well illustrated with examples. In one word, the resumé: it is worth taking part in many senses, particularly for nice memories and practical results. By the way, it was well worth making a minimal conspectus.
Further learning and experimenting is so much easier now that I had received the background knowledge. The workshop was of the highest quality and I have retained in my memory almost everything you had said. I made several excellent frames today and that was intentional rather than accidental as this used to be the case: whenever I got a nice frame, I would never know how I did it, because I was used to pressing and rotating everything just like that. I guess, my camera takes better pictures compared to an iPhone. Elarier, I used to think we had bought a sh... for a couple thousand. By the way, I had a very good time!!!! I am waiting for the next workshop impatiently! I have already recommended You to my friends who wish to know more too.
This was not just photography training, but also a trip full of good emotions. In short – this is three in one: 1. Amazing trip to explore Morocco. 2. Photography school – if you are not very new to photography, then the benefits are huge. 3. Full suitcase of great experiences. This is my opinion.
I have taken part in as many as four different photography workshops by Tomas since last July, including the one dedicated to taking pictures at night and the portrait session. None of them seemed too long for me as the time ran fast and everything – including the information provided, the examples given, the practical tasks and the process as a whole – was intriguingly appealing so that I concentrated my attention and eventually felt an even greater wish to better myself, experiment more and take part in other workshops. It all started with the “essence of essence”, when I walked in with a borrowed camera having no clue whatsoever about its settings and other technical matters since I was used to taking pictures with simple cameras. It was exactly at that time that a revolt inside me took place which changed my attitude to photography: I purchased a new camera, new lens and eventually I got “infected with the virus of photography” and I have not been able to stop ever since... I agree with the comments above regarding the workshops organised by Tomas; I recommend them very much.
I'm an adventure traveler. One destination that has always been high on my list is Morocco but I never got the chance to get there until...
I really didn't know what to expect during this travel, on one hand I have never been in a group travel before (and was a bit uncertain about that) and have never really been guided by someone. Tomas has proven that, in case you want to get the most out of a limited time set, it's great to have a tour guide that knows his way around, entertains people in a active way and aside of that teaches how to make amazing photographs under different circumstances. So after this travel I'm not only an adventure traveler but can add 'photographer' to this.
Thanks and hope to travel soon again to other destinations
Hmmmm, the beginning. Everyone is smiling and happy having no clue of what awaits. Many of us didn’t have our tummies ready for such muscle exercise due to continuous laughing from the airport waiting areas to the minivans throughout those 1500 km. We didn’t know back then what kind of
photo experience we will get on this trip, we didn’t know what kind of people we will meet, and we didn’t know what a strong team we will become. Thank you Tomas Tumalovicius, thank you to all who travelled together and to each one of you for those unforgettable moments, loads of positive energy and a sea of great pictures. Thank you.
Now my camera is not just a device, but also a part of me, my soul, and the reflection of my thoughts. Thanks to this training I understood the key mistakes I make, my strengths in photography, my improvement areas, and what I should do in order to convey my thoughts and mood in THE moment. It seems impossible to experience so much and understand so much in just one week, but with Tomas it really is! So do not hesitate, go! You will get plenty of great emotions and many nice shots
Before arriving in the workshop, I expected the same boring language as in most workshops, but I changed my mind by the whole 100% after the course. When such a nice and vastly experienced person is in front of you, learning and exploring something is fun. I truly enjoyed the workshop very very very much! There was no time for being bored, no time for sleeping beside the table! I had no regret whatsoever to have come to the course from far away as I truly consider them fantastic! I’ve really got experience regarding the camera since you have taught us all kinds of things and, well, the workshop was truly perfect! Nice experience and I will always remember your workshop.
If you can afford it, don’t hesitate. Sun, sand, interesting people, lots of great moments to
shoot; people who are learning together next to you, who advise what to focus on so that my pictures turn out admirable. This was an incredibly interesting trip with super useful schedule and, if you’re lucky, with an amazing crowd. And I believe you will be lucky.
