About The Workshop:

‘I can smell photograph. During walking in a street suddenly a place attract me magnetically. I can smell the right place and can visualize my future photograph. I wait until I get the picture I want, the waiting makes it more interesting, my attempts make me more excellent. I wait hours and hours with happiness but no boredom. Because I am sure I will get something every very special. Even I can spend one day in one place just to get one shot that will remain precious to me for lifetime’ – Mentor GMB Akash
