Do you want to produce striking photographic projects?
Be part of a Masterclass Workshop with Leica Ambassador and World Press Photo awarded photographer Fulvio Bugani and build your skills through concrete practical training into the world of visual storytelling.
Participants will follow an intensive hands-on program, closely guided by their instructor to sharpen their visual skills within their own photographic projects. Through daily group and individual meetings, the Master Photographer will guide each participant individually pushing them further. During the workshop the participants will be given ample space to analyze their photos and to share ideas on how to develop a reportage. In addition to the daily meetings to revise the work, there will be individual shooting sessions.
This intensive masterclass with Fulvio Bugani will help photographers structure their way of observing and photographing the world around them. Through a reading of participants’ works, shooting sessions in the city of New York, and editing sessions the Master photographer will guide each student towards the building of a personal photographic story.
The workshop includes daily meetings a our Head Quarter in New York to learn how to design a photographic project. This is a full-time program offering classes and shooting every day. Students should be prepared to work full-time.
The shooting sessions will be individual. If necessary Fulvio Bugani will join the participants to help them better understand how to approach the story, the situations and the people. A local photo editor will be available to revise the work.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS THINK OF US
I enrolled in the workshop to develop my ability as storyteller and to strengthen my photographic skills. I challenge myself, driven by the desire to shoot in a more conscious way. I was rewarded by the passion, skills and patience of the greatest Giulio Di Sturco and Fulvio Bugani who shared their work, commenting on my photos, even the most ugly, bad and boring, giving me advice, pointing out the mistakes and the details that I should seize. They forced me to look the world in a different way, to think that pictures speak louder than words, and that photography must convey emotion and communicate feelings. I have learned in a week more than I've learned in months and my passion and enthusiasm are grown.
I have been very pleased to meet Fulvio who is not only a great photographer but also an excellent communicator and trainer. He was able to communicate his photo passion to all participants. At the same time he was sharing his expert knowledge with enthusiasm highlighting the aspects to address in order to take better pictures. I learned a lot during this workshop and I am convinced his advices will help me improving my photography.This was an excellent workshop. We all learned a lot. Many thanks to you Fulvio Bugani. The organization was also perfect.
Thanks Fulvio Bugani for the great workshop and for teaching us so many new and really great stuff.

Great experience! Fulvio, is an extremely helpful teacher with a great passion for the photography! A passion that is contagious. Fantastic even the workshops organized by him!
I took part in the photographic workshop in Barcelona 2018. I want to thank the Master Photographer Fulvio Bugani for his huge passion for Street Photography and to being able to make us feel it as well as for his great photographic skills. It was a fantastic experience: we learned a lot while having fun. Thanks Fulvio
Congratulations! Very useful workshops, with high-level photographers. A great experience indeed.
What a great weekend we had learning with you Fulvio Bugani! I'm looking forward to another one.
Danke für einen lehrreichen und unterhaltsamen Vortrag. Was für ein Typ! Großartig!
Thanks to Fulvio Bugani I understood how important it is to choose well with whom to study photography. Fulvio is an exceptional master, great photographer and teacher. Taking a course with him is like concentrating years of study in a very short time and with excellent results!
I have completed a few courses with Foto Image such as Beginners photography, workshops in Istanbul and New York, in-class Reportage course and the Masterclass in Bangkok; and have been very happy with the atmosphere and the learning experience. Whereas the beginner and advanced courses will compliment your interests for photography as a passion, the courses "on the road" provide hands-on stimulation and strong foundation to that emerging photographer that's in you. Fulvio Bugani will make sure he repeats something till you really get it and no compliment will ever be spoon fed so you really need to earn it, which in my opinion is essential for learning. I wish this studio and the team further success and I am looking forward to more courses. Highly recommended to all levels and ambitions.
