What participants say about our workshop:

I really enjoyed it and I have learned a lot of new things. It was also great that is was really hands-on and practising a lot, not too much theory during the workshop. I started looking at the world differently again 🙂 It is probably the first time I’m looking forward to a homework assignment 😉 A big thank you!
Mariel Westendorp, St Legier

Thank you! Good learning with clear concepts and good fun!
Josué De La Maza, Vevey

I learned so much today and can not thank you both enough. I have already been practicing on all of the skills you taught us today. Thank you for unleashing the potential in my camera, and me, I am truly overjoyed to be able to capture moments in confidence of a great result. You guys are awesome!
Louise Al Taher, Montreux

Taking the photography workshop with Pixien it has been very useful for my hobby. I learned all about basic settings for my camera, photography tricks and, the best of all, in a very entertaining, hands-on and funny way! Now my pictures look much better! I widely recommend the workshop!
Ruben Cruz, Corseaux

I was pleased to attend Pixien workshop when I’ve learned how to benefit from all manual adjustments – skipping auto mode. The workshop time goes very fast but provides very useful and valuable information. Thanks for the workshop and valuable tips.
Lina Otaka Fujimaki, La Tour de Peilz

Monika showed me how I could bring out the maximum from my digital camera. Just a little adjustment and picture is completely different.
