Dear friends, I’m so grateful for all the feed-back you’re sharing with me.
a huge Thank you!
".........................Anka is not only an exceptional artist, but also a gifted teacher. It was a revelation to me to watch her work and share her ideals & thoughts about art and photography. Her images inspire and touch so many people, because she is able to communicate in an enigmatic way through her fine art photography. She sees things the way most can not, and she then is able to communicate it visually. This is most valuable skill to me to learn than any other I can think of, and Anka reveals her perspective so richly, which really inspires you view things in a new light. Whether you are an experienced photographer or a beginner, it doesn't matter because you can learn a great deal from her. The most valuable thing I took from her workshop was the insight and clarity of thought she brings to the creative process, and how to translate this from conception all the way through to post production. These are indeed rare skills to learn in a workshop............".
"...............That was amazing! Like a step to a completely different level for me. Anka is talented artist, great person and brilliant teacher! She shares her unique experience, deep knowledge, wisdom, attitude and inspires to go further and implement this knowledge. The workshop was well structured and filled with inspiring atmosphere. I enjoyed every moment during those 2 days - useful theory part was followed by great practice, reviews of works and portfolio with honest and professional feedback and advices given in a constructive way, photoshop editing techniques.........."
"...........Ania gives all her 'photographic' self right out. In short, I can only say that meeting her has turned my photographic 'know-how' upside down...well maybe used the wrong phrase here; it's put it on the right track. Watching Ania work, the way she talks about her work and her approach to it - it's all a true pleasure. She injects passion to create into the workshop participants. She forces them to creative thinking rather than just to mindless pressing of the shutter button. Ania's changed my overall approach to photography. Right... from that moment I've been trying to create, and not just press the shutter. I'm sure of one thing, I have been a better photographer since the workshop with Ania........"
"...............I have always been inspired by Anka's works and I really wanted to attend a workshop with Anka. And finally, it's happened!!! An amazing workshop! Anka is an awesome teacher, she shares everything she knows. She is magnificent and she inspired me. Honestly, this workshop opened my eyes up so much! The atmosphere was perfect – nature and adventure at our fingertips to explore and enjoy was almost an added bonus. Great content and a lot of fun. For me personally, it was the perfect blend of learning many new things but also a reaffirmation that I am on the right track in other existing aspects. Wonderful experience all around, and will be recommending this to everyone looking for an awesome workshop............"
".........My meeting with Anka Zhuravleva was the one that I will never forget because people with her sensitivity and sense of beauty are very rare. Anka was very generous with her time, knowledge and kindness. She taught me a lot about Photoshop and image creation and for these, I will be forever grateful. And I'm sure we will meet again......"
"...................I had a chance to meet Anka some time ago in Złodziejewo. I have always been inspired by Ania’s wonderful work. I was interested how she creates magic in her photos, where the inspiration comes from, what Photoshop skills you need to achieve such effects. Naturally, she teaches and explains these things during her workshops but there is something else hidden behind the essential education she gives. It is something more than pure teaching. She points at things which are around, components of your inner life which lead you to desired results. Not only is Anka a brilliant artist but a person too <3......................"
".........I am quite new to fine art photography. I wanted a course that would challenge me, teach me some ways of working and help conquer my reluctance to shoot people. This course delivered on all counts. Anka is a great teacher giving the best of her, wiling to share every tip with you. All in all a very fun, informative and top value 2 days experience! I’ll be definitely back for more!......"
.................Such an incredible experience that I would so happily and readily repeat, with the certainty that it would refuel me every time. Anka is a wonderful, creative, honest person and artist in every sense, with equal talent at imparting her knowledge, feedback and attention to detail. Her inspiration is truly infectious. So grateful for the experience, thank you <3............"
"...............Anka, thank you so sooo much for the workshop this weekend in Oporto. I just came home and a bit sad, cause it feels like it was a beautiful dream and now I woke up; ((jejeje thank you so much for sharing a piece of you with us!! It was incredible to see you work, to see your workflow. So honest, so transparent, so clear. I learned so much from you!!!..........."
".................If you are still not sure about taking lessons - I'd say totally go for it! ........"
