“ Very good tuition. ”

“ Thank you so much for two very enjoyable, very informative and very rewarding shoots (portrait and nude courses). There was a very friendly, supportive and encouraging atmosphere at both shoots. I find your sessions very motivating, inspiring and addictive. I love the creative angles (physical and thought) to shoots that you introduce. I have learned so much through these and other workshops and while I have still got a very long way to go it is changing and improving the way I view this form of creative art. The model, Helena, was once again a real star. She was fun, extremely accommodating and very patient throughout and went to lengths to work with us all to get the shots we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble for her. She suggested loads of excellent poses and even, without asking, checked some of my exposures and shots to ensure I was getting the best possible pictures. ”

“ Luca's workshops sessions are practical, pragmatic and goal oriented workshops, where learning the nuances of photography is by doing and doing it right. Luca has mastery in his craft and happily shares his experience, tips & tricks of bringing home a quality composition, I can't recommend more highly. ”

“ These workshops are by far one of the best I have done in London. Luca is a true artist who has boundless enthusiasm and creativity that rubs off on his students. There are such a variety of workshops to do, catering for all levels. I have found my level of photography has increased greatly, only second to how my enthusiasm for this hobby has grown and both have been down to Luca's teaching & advice. The set up of the classes, choice of models, ways of pushing us are second to none. I cannot recommend more highly theses class and this group. Every aspect of your photography can be improved joining these classes. The other members are so friendly as well and I have made many firm friends here - which is hard in London! Thanks Luca! ”

“ Each workshop is different as Luca's program covers a wide range of topics. However, they are also all the same in the sense that you'll always learn a lot as Luca enjoys sharing his great knowledge and vast experience with you. His teaching focuses on showing you how you can (re)create light set-ups yourself to achieve a specific style or mood. Even if your main interest isn't studio lighting you can still massively benefit from his tips on how to direct models and how to post-process your photos most efficiently. ”

“ The variety of themes, subject and models is incredible. Luca Monti, the organiser, is very knowledgeable and has loads (years and years) of experience as a photographer. He wants you to learn it the right way. That means that these workshops are different from other workshops you might have done in the past. From the moment you walk in Luca’s well-equipped studio until the moment you'll leave, I know that you've learned, and you've experienced the real deal. If you are ready to learn what photography is all about, join and participate in his workshops. ”

“ i really enjoyed my first workshop, some great people there who love photography as much as i do even if they seem much more experienced and advanced in their journeys. really brought home how inadequate my current standard is but what is obviously achievable, Luca is a great teacher and also a character who lives and breathes his passion. I think i have really fallen on my feet finding this group and teaching provider and this will be the first of many workshop i will look to attend. Thank you for everyone for being so supportive and patient. ”

“ The new studio is great. Much larger than the old one. Awesome Luca is a good instructor, he does well for English not being his 1st language, but sometimes a few of his words are not quite right, but you get what he means. :) Model was AMAZING, well done Nina. Probably my only complaint about the workshop is that part of the whole idea of these meetups is to actually meet people with similar interests and there wasn't an introduction session to meet the other attendees, so it was just a case of chatting between shooting. For me this is fine as I'm not shy, but for someone who was shy, it could be very intimidating to be in a group of strangers. Other than lack of a social introduction, this workshop was great. ”

“ Great workshop, a little disappointed with the model limited expression, otherwise she did a good job. She might be better suited to fine art nude or hair fashion. ”
