Here is what John Cooper said after his Manila workshop experience: “As an 70+ year old who has only recently started to take photography seriously, I was extremely nervous to attend a Photography Workshop. My first workshop with Maciej was in Myanmar in February 2019. It was a tremendous learning experience, physically tough but great fun. Maciej and the participants on the course were so tolerant and understanding that I treasure the whole experience. The one to one reviews with Maciej greatly increased my understanding, took me to another level and inspired me to continue to strive to improve. I have now attended workshops with Maciej in Hanoi and Manila. I have enjoyed each one more and more. I look forward to next one and I highly recommend even silver oldies like me to join Maciej’s workshops!”
