Workshops, photo courses and photo tours in D?sseldorf and NRW

At the Foto Koch Academy you will be introduced to the different areas of photography in a pleasant atmosphere under the guidance of professional trainers. Our workshops are designed to help you get started in photography, they are fun and awaken your creativity.

Forget YouTube: you will not only learn to take better pictures, but you will also meet other photographers and spend time with them: Live networking! Many contacts remain for years.

Of course we also talk about the optimal use of lenses and accessories, you are also welcome to test products that interest you. We adapt the learning pace to the participants individually and strive to answer every question extensively. Your photographic equipment is the tool you use to create your images, a means to an end. We explain both how to use this tool, but more importantly how to use it to bring your ideas to life, in connection with photographic fundamentals and how to train your photographic vision. Since images are made to be seen, not to "collect dust" on hard drives, we also offer sessions on post-processing and the proper presentation of your work.

There's not only boring theory here!
