“ Susana is a being that exudes love 24/7. A wonderful and talented woman that knows the secret of how to create great photographs”
Erin Chrisman about Susana Barbera:
“ Such a lover of life! Such a passionate person! Her photos reflect the energy, excitement, passion and beauty that she sees in life. I can always recognize a Susana photo because of how much life and personality it shows of the bride and groom”
Sion Fullana about Susana Barbera:
“I go crazy with Susana´s work. She is full of infinite magic. Her pictures are close to the ones from the classic masters, perfect on emotion, technic and personality. They are full of feminine magic but they go straight to you soul with a sensual touch!"
Kelly Rashka about Susana Barbera:
“ She inspires me. Her smile, her voice, her photography!! She's unreal! That woman can’t be stopped! She is a genius, powerful, magical. She makes you believe in magic, she makes magic happen. My life will never be the same after meeting her”
Marco is one of the top wedding photographers in Germany and is known for his excellent post production to create crispy & vibrant colourful images and contrasty black & whites. His posing work is in balance with his photojournalism wich makes him an all round master.
Besides a great photographer Marco is also a king at marketing & selling his work. He has given numerous workshops to professional wedding photographers in Germany and now he is coming to Amsterdam!
In addition to his presentation on how he creates his images, he will speak about how to get (the right) new clients, how much you can (and should) charge them and how to make the most out of each wedding you shoot. €€€ KACHING! €€€.
Jeremy is a storyteller. A Paris based-photojournalist specialised in sociocultural issues. He told stories about the Sri Lankan civil war, historical changes in Myanmar, the underground art scene in Iran and pursues personal projects in the Black Sea region and Central Asia. When Jeremy talks, everybody listens.
He dives into his projects and becomes one of them. Imagine yourself a "Chinese tourist" in Europe... Hop on and off the bus for two weeks just to take a picture and "see" Europe along with 35 chinese speaking fellow travellers. Eat chinese food three times a day and sleep in dodgy budget hotels. Jeremy has done it, just to tell the story.
His work can be found in the Sunday Times Magazine, Newsweek, The Washington Post, Geo, Der Spiegel, Figaro Magazine, 6Mois, L’Equipe Magazine, Internazionale and Vice.
You can be certain Jeremy has some very entertaining stories to share with us. But he will also be very serious about what your mindset should be as a photojournalist.
