READ WHAT PARTICIPANTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

Ivo Šubić: Thank you all for your company, for the laughter, fun, education, long late night conversations, long walks exploring Brijuni in the day, and most of all, thank you Marko for making all this possible. One couldn't wish for a better company!

Sergej Jonke: ...what can I say... except: I would like a lifetime subscription, if possible...

Ksenija Keča: Dear Marko, thank you for a wonderful experience of Brijuni and the excellent organisation of the photography workshop. We are following you and looking forward to all your future projects!

Irena Sedmak: Thank you very much for the company, enjoyment, and even the exhaustion. Thanks to everyone, and especially Marko. It is great to know there are other lovers of nature, of the quiet, the chirping of birds... Being completely separated from the rest of the world – priceless. The only thing I regret, which I will change the next time, is that I didn't get up at 5 a.m. every morning to go looking for deer. Marko, thank you. You have won me over for a lifetime.

Katarina Ćirković: Thank you for selfless sharing of hidden beauties and wonderful frames, which bring a smile to one's face. I hope we will meet soon and look forward to it!

Ines Habereiter: Thank you all for your company, laughter, good atmosphere, and good advice. I would also like to thank Marko for his guidance and remarks. I'm definitely infected and hope to be accepted to the club of recidivists.

Lidija Mrše: Marko, thank you for the encouragement. It was an unforgettable experience!
