About the workshop

The photo expedition is dedicated mainly to street photography in Tbilsii and Batumi. The transfers between the towns are minimized, so that we have enough time for walking the streets of the two cities, interesting from the point of view of the street and genre photography.

We will stay in good hotels in the centers of the cities. Each day we will meet in the conference room to discuss the photos and talk about photography. The participants will be given recommendations on the areas of the cities, most interesting for photography.
