Q: How advanced do I need to be?

A: Our workshops are designed to accommodate different levels of experience, from beginners to professionals.

Q: Film/Digital?

A: In order to facilitate workflow in the classroom, all our workshops are digital workshops. You will need a digital camera. A laptop computer with all necessary including devices to download your images to your computer system is an advantage.

Q: What kind of equipment should I bring?

A: A digital camera is necessary for any course. Point and shoot cameras are satisfactory for beginner's courses, however, in order to gain a deeper understanding of the digital process and to be more creative, we encourage you to use a digital SLR. Lenses between 50 to 200 mm(35mm standard) range will be useful, as well as a flash. Bring plenty of batteries, memory cards.
In addition, bring your own laptop computer with a current version of either Photoshop or Lightroom (Photoshop Elements). If you do not have a current version, you can always download a free version for use as long as you do not install it into your computer 30 days prior to the end of the workshop.
Other software trials will be provided or can be downloaded/purchased through our free internet connection in the classroom.

Q: What time does the Workshop start?

A: It depends from workshop theme and location. Studio workshops we mostly start at 12.00. We can change time on your request.

Q: How do I handle lodging reservations?

A: You will have to make your own hotel/apartment reservations in Riga. We are happy to assist you and share information & tips.For "on location" workshops the lodging organization is handled by us. Closest hotels to our studio are hotel Islande and Raddion Blue Daugava or budget hotel NB hotel
Q: How much "hands-on" help will I get (theory part & in the field)?

A: Theory hours are dedicated to group discussions and the exchange of ideas and knowledge. The instructor will provide (by use of equipment) tips, tricks and ideas according to the curriculum of the course. Individual attention is then provided if you ask for it in order to resolve the problem/issue at hand. If you need further help please ask for it! If you don't, the instructor will move on to the next topic. The same goes while shooting on location. It is the job of the teacher/instructor to provide full guidance in regards to composition, exposure, and other technical and artistic questions. Ask and you will get all the attention you feel you need.
