The rate doesn't include food, transportation or accomodation expenses. Special offer: 20% discount will be refunded to the first two participants at the end of the workshop.

"When we first saw the work of the Bragdon brothers, we immediately thought they would be perfect for the challenge of holding a workshop to showcase a different side of Venice. They are exceptional street photographers, their view is never banal and digs deep into the details and essence of the subjects they photograph".
