Carlos is a passionate photographer who's enthusiasm drives his photography workshop and keeps it engaging. I hadn't delved into the fun and creative world of photography since High School and had forgotten all of the basics. But a session with Carlos and he had meback on my bicycle and capturing the world around me.
Carlos is clear, concise and very informative which was great as when we put it to practise I could navigate around my camera with easeand choose the appropriate settings i wanted for my shot.

His story of getting into this creative field of work is pretty inspiring too. 


I have taken two workshops from Carlos: ‘The use of natural light in portrait photography' and 'Food photography'. During those workshops Carlos managed to inspire me with his passion to the subject and convey the essential knowledge about it. He was also willingly sharing technical and artistic knowledge on how to achieve the best result in the most efficient way. Carlos was always very helpful during the workshops and took time answering any questions I had. Apart from learning a lot, I also had much fun and enjoyed my time experimenting with my camera under Carlos's guidance. I am very glad I had an opportunity to meet Carlos and learn new things from him! Thank you so much!
