WELCOME FELLOW PHOTOGRAPHERS & VIDEOGRAPHERS!

Join us on the top of the Mediterranean for a unique experience that will leave you inspired! 

Groznjan, Croatia
October 15-16, 2018

 

This 2-day workshop is for you – a photographer or videographer, who is seeking your true purpose and want to discover your unique style. Hosted in a beautiful villa, we will sit together and talk about our story, how we started and what were the key elements that brought us and our businesses to where we are today. You can expect a lot of honesty, new tricks and lots of tips on how to improve your business, editing or shooting techniques.

This is not one of those workshops, where you end up sitting on the other side of the room, listening and writing things down. We want you to step out of your comfort zone, set goals and strategies, that will help your business grow. Join us if you are dedicated to be focused, full of energy and ready to do some hard work.

You have to come – THIS WORKSHOP IS LIFE-CHANGING!

“I came from Australia just to attend Katja & Simon’s workshop. AMAZING does not even begin to describe how incredible my experience was. Katja & Simon were so generous with their time and did not hold anything back, I could not have asked for a better workshop with more fantastic people. Not only did i leave their workshop with a great deal of knowledge on new ways to improve my photography business but i left knowing i had made friendships for life. I cant recommend enough to anyone even considering doing a workshop with Katja & Simon to just do it. I have no doubt it will change your life just like it did mine.”

WHO WILL BE TEACHING?

 

Katja & Simon Avbar – KATJASIMON

We are a husband and wife, who love to travel, laugh and goof around. We fell into the wedding photography business by accident, thanks to Simon’s cousin, who got married 5 years ago. Today we are happy to travel around Europe and beyond, while doing something we truly love.

We organised the first Monte Istra Workshop in May 2018, with the intention to share our knowledge, tips and tricks we use in our business, while staying at a beautiful place with amazing vibes. The response from the attendees was phenomenal, that is why we are hosting a second workshop at the same spot.

Alena is the genius cinematographer behind the brand Fragments Collection. Her work is easily recognised as a blend of documentary and cinematographic style. Her films are intimate, very personal and honest, showcasing real tears, loud laughs and genuine emotions.
