Architecture Photography:

Behind The Scenes

Photopia is hosting a series of workshops called the "Behind the Scenes" or "BTS series". We know that many photographers are eager to learn from many established ones from different fields of photography. Some of those photographers do not have enough time (shooing back to back) to pull up a sturcture for a regular workshop but they are very happy to host other photographers on set to watch and learn in a real shoot. We find it a great way to learn photography. 

Our first BTS workshop in this series was with the renowned architecture master Nour El Refai shooting the interior of an office space in Katameya with ONLY 4 photographers having the chance to join, observe and listen to Nour and his team while shooting and explaining.
