Once again I am collaborating with my talented and experienced friends Simone Van den Berg of a href="http://simoneskitchen.nl/en/"Simone's Kitchen/a and a href="http://www.confiture-de-vivre.de/"Sand Neumann/a, both of whom I have worked and instructed with in past workshops and on various projects.

Tucked just outside Berlin and surrounded by tranquil lakes and fields, thea href="http://www.landgut-aborsig.de/" emLandgut/em Borsig/a with its sprawling grounds, will house our team for the duration of the workshop. This quaint country estate is the leading sustainable private hotel in Germany and the very first organic certified hotel in Berlin. With access not only to their well equipped training rooms and kitchen, but also to their park and private lake area we have created the perfect atmosphere for many hands-on photography exercises and assignments.  /pp align="center"a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/61245657@N07/13566282444" title="WORKHOP1 by Meeta K.
