GMB Akash about participant Ingrid Koedood:

“Ingrid Koedood is an amazing traveler and photographer. She has a different approach to understand people which made it very easy for her to interact with people and thus she got some amazing pictures. After completing the workshop she produced a cohesive portfolio. She captured light and colour brilliantly into aesthetic compositions and produced some detail works. Her work represents diverse artistic concerns. I wish her very best. Her produced images is the showcase how wonderfully she captured moments”







Ingrid Koedood talks about the workshop:

“Participating in the One on One Photography Workshop with GMB Akash turned out to be one of the best things I’ve done for my creative self in a very long time. I deeply admired GMB Akash work when I follow him in social networking sites, the colour, aspects and composition drew my mind and pierce my soul. The expressions of the images were coming back to my mind and then I have decided to give a try to this exclusive program. My passions are also traveling and photography, so I wanted to come to Bangladesh. Bangladesh is a wonderful country, the colour, the light and its beautiful people gave a long lasting memory to cherish.







For a photographer joining this workshop was a great opportunity for me to learn. I will really miss this place and would like to come back again. For a solo traveler I feel Bangladesh is really safe. My great teacher Akash taught me how to improve the technique, how to balance the composition of the picture, how to find and use proper light and also how to optimize portraits. He remained close to me and shared his knowledge, tricks. Without any hesitation, I could ask him any question whenever I had a doubt. I found it’s great to shoot side by side with Akash, in the real field. This was undoubtedly a life changing experience as a traveler and photographer. I give my full recommendation to those who want to explore such adventure as like me”







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.
