Robert T. : "I would absolutely recommend this workshop. The photography experience level of the participants ranged from a few months-10 years, and the workshop was set up in a way that everyone was challenged. I can’t tell you enough how talented Jorge and Sebastian are as photographers and instructors. I will definitely be signing up for the next NYCSPC workshop."

Zach R.: "Sebastian and Jorge were both extremely thoughtful and insightful during the workshop. I had a blast, and I have a way stronger understanding of how I want to approach shooting moving forward thanks to both of you. Also, just getting to hang out with other people interested in street shooting was awesome!"

Sofia S.: "It was a pleasure to be part of this talented group of people for a weekend. The lecture, your thoughts on street photography, and your feedback was all very valuable."

Mark B.: "The workshop Jorge and Sebastian hosted over the weekend taught me about staying in the pocket, finding a less muddled composition, and that my footwork leaves something to be desired."

Yusuke N: "It was amazing and I learned a lot! Although I'll go back to Japan this month, I'm going to keep shooting in Tokyo and make TOKYO-SPC! It's my pleasure to meet Jorge and Sebastian."
