HELLO AND WELCOME!
About my upcoming workshop in Croatia
When I think about a perfect workshop, it would be a combination of education and vacation, learning and working on myself as well as a little bit of travel hedonism. It is getting to know new, honest and openminded people and new places. Eating local food. An adventure of a kind. This is why I created my Croatian workshop, that will take place this May in Motovun, Istria in a charming historic Villa Angelo.
When? September 28th - October 02nd 2020 (Monday to Friday)
Where? Motovun, Istria, Croatia - Villa Angelo
What? A retreat for photographers [wedding, but not necessarily only wedding photographers]
Who is Dalibora?
GET TO KNOW ME
I always thought that good photography comes from the heart. From what and who you really are. I find inspiration in everything around me. Even in raindrops on moody days. I am a bit of an introvert. Talking about myself is hard. But I also believe getting out of your comfort zone is the only thing that will push you forward. One of the reasons why I am in the business of wedding photography is - I wanted to show people that these photos can be much more than staged and unnatural photos. I wanted to show them it is a personal, emotional and most intimate thing that deserves to be shown in the same way.
TESTIMONIALS FROM MY ATTENDEES
WHAT THE WORKSHOP GAVE HER
I am extremely happy I booked my spot at your workshop! Two years ago I heard you speak at Litomysl conference where you caught my attention, and stayed with me in my thoughts for a long time after. I am in love with all of your work. Your workshop was just perfect. It was completely different from all the workshops I've been to so far. Technical things can not surprise me any more, but the shared experiences, personal inventions and your point of view is something completely different than one can ever read in a manual. And it was exactly what I needed! A confirmation, that where I want to go and how I want to create makes sense. That I don't have to do things just like everyone else, because it is something that is "done that way" or expected. That we are all different, have different lifes, troubles or time that we can/want to invest.
Thank you from my whole heart for being the way you are, for being exactly the way I imagined you to be and for absolutely perfect and friendly atmosphere! I got so much energy from you and found out a lot of things for my personal development and growth not only as a photographer! Cherry on the top was creating new friendships, which I believe we successfully did thanks to your enormous gift for having so much empathy, for being so nice, open hearted and HUMAN, exactly like all your photographs. It is obvious, that everything you do, you do with all of your heart.
HOW TO BURN FOR YOUR CLIENTS
BUT NOT TO BURN OUT
I booked my spot at your workshop as a gift for my own birthday. Your photography was always speaking to my heart and I knew it is going to be a beautiful experience just getting to know you. Little did I know in the next six months my life is going to be upside down, with a very full wedding season behind me and a little human in my belly. My main goal after that was going to the workshop and find my lost breath and perhaps, find out how to still burn for my clients without burning out. And I did!
I am no longer unhappy knowing that even if I burn for all the people that stand in front of my camera, not all of them are giving that energy back - and it's perfectly fine. Not everyone is for everyone, as you say. I am more grateful for all the people who remind me why I do this job. And the main reason is, and always was to capture happiness and create memories. Thank you so much for these wonderful two days!
