Umar Ali

I had the pleasure of attending the first first workshop in Istanbul. It was an amazing experience. Being in the company of a renowned photographer is reason enough to attend. Extraordinary teachers have a way of inspiring their students to see things in a way they didn’t know was possible. Sidi Peter has inspired me in so many way that no small review can do justice. The most extraordinary lessons I learned was the relationship between light and shade; how shadows are an integral part of a human being and not to hide being post processing.

But perhaps the most valuable lesson was something he said in one of his classes that has stuck with me and has changed my outlook towards photography, that every good photograph is a gift from Allah.

This is not a typical workshop, but a journey at the end of which you will InshAllah lean to see the beauty of moments worth preserving through photography.
