First Dog Photography Workshops with Alicja Zmysłowska in Slovakia – Kosice 12-13.09.2015

Opinion from one of participants:                                                                                                    “I have to say that the Workshop in Kosice was amazing and I enjoyed every minute of it! From scouting for locations to interaction with your dog model and retouching – Alicja had it all covered. There is so much one can learn from her, I would have loved for the Workshop to last longer.  Alicja was very helpful at all times – giving us feedback everytime she got a chance, lending us her gear to try it out and answering every question we asked. The workshop definitely exceeded my expectations! Thank you Alicja for being such an inspiration! It was a weekend to remember! ” 
First Dog Photography Workshops with Alicja Zmysłowska in Austria – Vienna 25-26.07.2015

Opinion from one of participants:
“When I heard about the First Dog Photography Workshops with Alicja Zmyslowska in Austria I was very excited and immediately knew I needed to participate, as I have seen a lot of Alicjas work around and always loved her photos. This workshop was the first I ever visited, and I was very anxious about what to expect. The two days were packed with information and a lot of fun, and more than met my expectations! It was very interesting to learn how Alicja chooses her locations, and how she handles the dog and owner before finally trying to get the perfect shot. On the second day, we learned a lot about retouching the pictures, and it really changed the way I see my own pictures. I can highly recommend visiting a workshop with Alicja to everyone without hesitation!”  ~Jenni Freytag

First Dog Photography Workshops with Alicja Zmysłowska in Norway – Bergen 18-19.07.2015

Opinion from one of participants:
“Alicja is an exceptional photographer making unique photos. I have admired her photos for a long time. Therefore, it was great to be able to follow her workshop in Bergen this year. We had two nice days. The first day we had a photo session in the beautiful surroundings of the Hansa museum. The following day, Alicja taught us how she works with the photos in Lightroom.
During these two days I´ve got a lot more experience shooting many different dogs, and I specially appreciated what I learned about retouching photos in Lightroom. It was great to learn how Alicja works, and I got a lot of inspiration to work further with my photos.
Thank you, Alicja, for a great workshop!” ~Laila Bruun
