Participant (III) Review of the One on One workshop with GMB Akash

6 Day One-on-One Workshop with GMB Akash: The focus of this customized program is to not only teach photography but to give students a chance to fully experience a career that is often misunderstood. While media and films have glamorized the lives of photographers, the reality is that this is one of the world’s most demanding and difficult jobs, both physically and mentally. We have designed GMB Akash’s workshops to give young photographers an opportunity to experience the true nature of international photojournalism, street photography and documentary photography. No other workshop or seminar gives students the ability to work one on one with a professional photojournalist in a real world environment. Each student will have exclusive access to GMB Akash through the duration of the workshop, giving them the opportunity to take advantage of his work experience, teachings, and methodologies. Due to the intimate nature of these workshops and the real world working environment, each student can expect to learn and experience much more than they would during one year in a standard university photography program. Each workshop is six days long and set in locations that are rich in culture with a wealth of photographic and documentary subject matter.

Introducing Gerry Huber, participant of One on One workshop with GMB Akash.

He is born and raised near Steyr in Austria. He goes out for traveling for three months every year. His passion for traveling then joined by the passion of photography about three years ago. He believes learning from professionals is probably the best way for further development in photography. Gerry Huber came from Austria and has completed one on one workshop with GMB Akash in Bangladesh.

This workshop was exceptional in every aspect. I put it on top of my list after I had purchased the book “Survivors“. I thought from this man (GMB Akash) I can learn hell of a lot. And so it was. I got a Teacher and a Friend. Most of the locations we went I could not have gone by myself. We had long exhausting days, were shooting a lot, Akash gave me honest reviews and critics on my work.

The most important thing I learned from Akash was how to interact with people and how to put them into the right light. Also I learned how to get the best out in low or difficult light situations without flash or tripod and I also learned a way how to shortlist my shots of a day in a fast process.

My vision changed and developed a lot. I got very critical about light now whenever I am out for a shooting. People may wonder now why I am always looking straight into their eyes. All my expectations have been met. The days and the whole week where just too short.

Will I recommend anyone for this exclusive workshop? Yes, Yes, Yes! if someone wants to improve her/his photography skills, this is the way to go. unique locations, great people, and a fantastic teacher. It might seem to be an expensive workshop for some people, but for me it pays out full. And if I see all the NGO and social works where most of the money goes, it makes me proud that I can get part of it…Full Recommendation!
