What we encourage 

We encourage photographers to focus on taking 1 amazing photo, rather than 100 ok photos. Because of this, we discourage shooting over another photographer’s shoulder, so that each participant gets 1-on-1 time with the model, and focus on the skills they are learning. Our recommendations and behaviours will be debriefed when the workshop commences, but it is up to you, the participant, to follow this.
