The workshop is arranged with a flexible schedule, so the group can organically discuss and share feedback, based on their unique areas of interest or desired areas of improvement.

Who should take this workshop? 
Have you owned your Leica M for a while, but find that you are still stuck in automatic settings? Do you feel like you are not getting the most out of your camera? This workshop is for you! Owners of all experience levels will benefit from this program. Advanced photographers can meet other
enthusiasts and explore new cities during our class photo walk. 


Though this workshop is to cover all M Owners skill sets, it is recommended that registrants have a basic understanding of camera technology navigation: Basic knowledge in photography will help. 

For those whom have never been formally trained in photography or a novice, (only using automatic), we strongly suggest a per-requisite workshop in Photography Fundamentals or a Bespoke Hour with one of our Akademie Instructors.

Registration for this event closes 24-hours before each class begins to solidify attendance. Please feel free to email any questions or concerns to AkademieUSA@Leica-Camera.com
