The review is addressed to photographers of all levels – whether you are a beginner or a professional photographer you are welcomed to join us.  All you have to do is register! (Please see the registration details at the bottom of the page).

On a first come first served basis, each guest will spend 15 minutes sitting with a tutor, presenting and getting feedback on their body of work.

We suggest to have a purpose for the meeting and to communicate it to your reviewer in order to get the most out of it.

The only preparation required for the review is a portfolio.

What is a photo portfolio? A portfolio is a collection of various photos that showcases the best work and represents a photographic style of a photographer.  It also can focus on a single subject or can be selected and grouped around a certain theme or story.

If you are a beginner, bring any images that you feel need to be reviewed.

If you are a professional photographer, bring the actual portfolio you want to show to your clients.

Please bring with yourself up to 40 photos (preferably organized in not more than two groups) in printed or electronic forms.

The assessment is carried out by three of our tutors and photography experts:

  • Ion Paciu: Founder of the school, extremely talented tutor and professional photographer. He would like to see landscape, cityscapes, professional assignments, commercial and portrait photography with a particular emphasis on lighting and picture making. With his overwhelming energy and powerful vision, his understanding of art and customer needs, he can generously bring your photography to a new outstanding level of quality.
