Check the blog and participant photographs from our last Anilao Workshop


Anilao is the critter capital of the Philippines and home to the rarest critters of the underwater world. Macro subjects are perfect for photography training as the subjects do not tend to move much and give you time to work on your techniques and photography styles.

The workshop will be led by Simon Lorenzan award-winning photographer and trains people on a regular basis. He will be assisted by Pauline Wong who is a photographer and instructor and will assist you especially if you are a beginner.
