Lessons are taught by active photographers in their kind but also great teachers, the method of coordinating the class’ progress, fruitful criticism, personal guidance so that each student develops their own identity, as well as paralell programs such as photographers’ presentations, photowalks and interesting workshops, not only have developed my technical skills, have shaped my aesthetic, and generally have changed my approach towards photography, but most of all they have made me feel part of a beautiful community!
My love for art photography along with the need for “creative escape” from the reality and the “times of crisis” led me to the door step of Orama. There I met remarkable teachers which made me cope with my “artistic self” developing my perspective on things, organizing at the same time in themes my photographic thought and notable people with whom we shared, apart from our love for art and photography, human moments that I will never forget. It is said that the culture of education takes away the culture of freedom. The People and lessons in Orama managed every week to make me feel free.
I always liked photography… I could see pictures for hours but I had never imagined that photography, as an art, hides so much. The school changed my visual perception; i have been taught how important is to depict our own truth on photos. There i met new friends with whom we shared our passion and concern.
Now, after a year, i can say that i completely trust people that teach at Orama and i look forward to continue the journey to the wonderful world of art photography.
