How is the workshop day?
Our workshops begin with a welcome introduction, this allows us to meet and become familiar with everyone, followed by working on the set, a break for rest, the continuation of the workshop and a recapitulation of what was done during the day. We encourage participation, so you can ask any questions you have during class.
What equipment do I need to bring?
Bringing a DSLR camera and a pair of lenses is recommended for variety. Please also bring some memory cards, a spare battery, and your digital portfolio if you want us to take a look! If you are joining a digital retouching workshop you will be required to bring a laptop with Photoshop and Camera Raw installed. Additional information about the equipment (if necessary) will be emailed to the students prior to the workshop.

Is my deposit refundable?
We understand that sometimes unexpected changes happen, so we try to be as flexible as possible with cancellations. We have to be notified of its cancellation as soon as possible, this gives us time to give the space to someone else. The deposit is non-refundable, however we allow it to be used as a credit for another workshop.
What happens if a workshop date is canceled?
If for any reason we have to cancel a workshop, we will notify you as soon as possible and credit will be applied towards another course or date.
How many students will there be?
We try to keep the groups as small as possible, so we limit the amount to a maximum of 10 students, this allows us more individual time on set.
What are the terms of use for the images we take in the workshop?
The images taken by each individual are not for commercial use, they are allowed to use the images for their portfolios, web pages and social networks. Any commercial use (printing sales, exhibitions, etc.) must be clarified prior to use with Edil Méndez, for a better professional handling.
