isn't it hard to overcome your fear of shooting strangers?

 
 
 

...but what if I told you that you don't even have to.

Leave the fear behind and start shooting with your eye, heart & soul!

When I started out with street photography, I hated this big mountain of fear between me and the street photos I wanted to take. Only later I realized something that changed my street photography forever: You don't even need to conquer your fear!

It's all about your Eye, Heart and Soul!

Learn how to shoot well from a distance. 

You may have read here and there that you have to get closer in order to evoke emotions.

However, that couldn't be further from the truth! As long as you place your subject well in the scenery and feel the moment, it's all it takes!

Let's take a step back, shoot from a respectful distance - and fear won't stand in your way anymore!


Learn how to Capture the Magic of a moment.

Shooting from further way not only respects people's space, it also lends depth to your photos. Great photos raise more questions than they answer, right?

I will teach you how to capture the connection between a subject and its scenery.

Of course, you can still shoot someone from up close. However, it's a matter of how smart and gentle you do it.

You'll learn many different approaches to shoot closer without interrupting someone's personal moment - or making it uncomfortable for both of you.

It's all a question of how you approach a moment!


learn how to Post-Process on a professional level!

As much as the photo itself counts, post-processing takes it to a professional level! I'll show you all my editing tips, tricks and strategies that have changed my street photos forever.

We'll go through everything step by step so you can use it for your own photos as well!

"Hi Marius,

I wanted to say big thanks for the amazing weekend we had in
Amsterdam. It was really exciting and eye-opening

The weekend made me more confident about my potential in photography, and
most importantly how I can contribute to the world by telling my
positive stories through art.

Yes, art. I think that was the most powerful revelation that weekend... I want to be an artist!!! Making photos is just the initial canvas of what will be the expression of myself in a final product."

Thank you for that!!!"

Joaquin (Austria)


"Hey Marius,

You've done an exceptional job! Your commitment was outstanding and inspiring!

Thank you for being so open-minded and allowing us to open up as well! When we discussed our photos in that lovely cafe on Sunday, I though for a moment: "This must've been the way Bresson & Co sat together in a Parisian Cafe to talk street photography."

It was incredible!

Christof (Germany)

Hi Marius,

Thanks a lot again for the weekend workshop - the experiences I had there are far more meaningful and precious than the technical lessons usually taught in common photography workshops - you showed and shared yourself with us, against the value of which all of the material riches in the world are worthless.

You touched my heart and soul and I was deeply moved.

Cyn (Germany)

 

Hi Marius,

thank you very much for the interesting weekend in Amsterdam. I have taken a lot of information and inspiring sparks from it! After looking at your great images "Bresson"  and "Retina"  I just wanted to meet you. 

I am already trying to be an artist, but what your articles and workshop showed me was what this exactly means. Photos don't have to be photo realistic like all camera manufacturers want to make us believe. No matter how we create our photos, what really matters is that we express our eye, heart and soul in them!

Expressing your eye, heart and soul is challenging, but it's more than worth it. You've convinced me! Eye, Heart & Soul means for me to connect inner beauty and beautiful moments in the world around us. 

Thank you again Marius for the workshop in Amsterdam and offering me a piece of the nice tasting cake called city breaks.

Andreas (Germany)

 

Requirements & Skills

Ready for the next level?

vice-ehs-eye-heart-and-soul-9.jpg
 

Language Skills

Eye, Heart & Soul Workshops are taught in English. However, I also speak fluent German and Dutch. To communicate even better with you, I'm learning French, Italian, Spanish & Japanese at the moment.


Equipment

Any camera is fine as long as you are familiar with your camera. We won't cover the absolute basics. However, if you aren't sure about something, I will help you real quick. For the post-processing training, you should bring a laptop. If you don't have one, I'll also explain it for you on the big screen.

Street Photography Skills

This street photography workshop is made for beginners and intermediate street photographers. You know how to use your camera and basic composition rules, but you want your street photos to stand out more.

The goal is to take your street photos to a much more unique, impactful and professional level!


Attitude & Background

This workshop is tailored towards all cultures, colors and educational backgrounds as long you are open-minded, tolerant and eager to improve.

Whether you are 18 or 99, we are united in diversity at Eye, Heart & Soul!

Frequently asked questions

Will I get my money back if the workshop wasn't to my satisfaction?

Of course! You have a 100% Money-Back-Guarantee! If I couldn't provide enough value for you, I honestly don't want your well-earned money. It just feels wrong to me. I want us both to be as happy as it gets.

 


Is the hotel included in the ticket?

As long as I can't offer you a room in my own hotel that I can vouch for, I will leave it up to you. Everyone has a different taste that I want to respect. If you needs tips, please ask me and I'll help you! 


How much time do we spent shooting outside?

We will have a perfectly balanced mix between learning new things and applying them right away. We will spend a few hours inside and a few outside. Depending on the needs of the group, we can always slightly adjust the timing.


anything else?

I'm looking forward to hearing from you! 

You can reach out to me in English, German and Dutch. If it's not too complicated, French, Spanish and Italian should be fine, too!
