“Albania is a fascinating and beautiful country. A big advantage is travelling with someone who has a deep connection to the land... In addition, having two accomplished photographers at hand provided excellent learning opportunities.” - Ora B.

The workshop struck a fine balance of being efficiently organized, diverse and well-paced, but we were also granted the freedom and time to explore on our own and pursue our personal curiosity. Having access to Elena’s knowledge and lifelong connection with Albania was such a privilege. This afforded us access to secret locations, local people and the fascinating food and culture of Albania... Overall, I came away impressed, challenged, and eager to continue developing my photography."  - Sam K.
