About the Instructor:

He specializes in storytelling photography and is concerned with using photography as visual communication.

Being a part of Emilio’s workshop has helped shape my vision on what shooting on the street is really about and speaks to why I enjoy being out there so much. Over time doors have opened and friendships have been made.
