Photography changes our way of seeing the world, of feeling and perceiving reality, through fostering intense processes of self-knowledge. Knowing who we are and what we can achieve with that knowledge is essential for attaining happiness.
In the workshop Photography to Get to Know Yourself, you will explore photography’s potential as a tool of self-discovery and personal expression and development, grounded in a theoretical framework rooted in psychology and the creative processes of contemporary art.
In this workshop, you will learn about visual culture and study artists who have dedicated their lives to crafting compelling and transformative works. You will acquire the skills to express yourself through images and create photographs that hold significance in a personal and intimate process.
The provided exercises will guide you through this journey, helping you stay focused on what you will explore.
Through personal experience, you will realize that your photographs can be a starting point for more authentic and personal growth and creative processes.
There is no fixed schedule; you have the freedom to enjoy the experience at your own pace. Starting December 6, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday until January 15, you will receive a total of 24 sessions, each containing audio training, inspiring artists, photography exercise suggestions, and music recommendations. Allocating between 10 to 15 minutes per day will suffice for listening, reading, and watching the content. You’re in control of when you access the materials and create the suggested images.
I invite you to embark on this experience with an open and curious mind- a playful approach, a way of observing without preconceptions, judgment, or accepting or rejecting anything right away, simply embracing each message received and enjoying the journey of getting to know yourself as if meeting someone for the first time.

I’ve just finished this course and I’ve got to say I loved it so much!I’ve been photographer for over 30 years now and I saw this on Instagram and thought this is what I need to challenge me creatively and make me think a different way about what I take and how I take it …and about myself to👍📷🥰 Highly recommended… I took this and would have never of thought of it before the course🙌
This workshop has been one of my most enriching experiences, as it gave me an opportunity to explore my senses and capture the verbs related to the art of Loving. Also, with this workshop’s help, I could identify the love others express to me, accept it with gratitude and admiration, and reject what might seem like love but fails to hold its essence. In the course of this workshop, I could discover how I love and how I want to be loved. I loved it.
I thought I would find this workshop more difficult, but I didn’t… I flowed through it most easily. I didn’t focus on a romantic partner but on my family. And the experience has been very positive and enriching. For Action 15, Give time, I made a video of all my photos because I couldn’t even find the words. ANDANAFOTO… Thank you very much for everything. I found you at a challenging time in my life. And I think I’ve learned to recognize, accept, and channel my fears and feelings. I feel stronger and more capable and have developed the creativity I had kept hidden. I FEEL GREAT.
It was a great experience; it informed my practice and helped me open up to new ideas while revisiting old ones from new angles. And I loved the artist’s inspirations; education on other artists’ works is very important! The songs were a fun addition as well.
The subjects I worked on and the entire concept helped me believe in myself more and trust my instincts, especially as a photographer. It rekindled my connection with photography and guided me to discover my own style. While I haven’t completed all the subjects yet, I intend to work through them at my own pace.
I have loved this course. While I’ve been a bit shy about tagging as much of my work as I had hoped (so others could see it), I want to express my gratitude. I’ve really enjoyed this experience.
It was an astonishing experience! I vividly recall seeing the advertisement at the year’s end and viewing it as an opportunity to break from my routine. However, I ended up surpassing that expectation: shattering paradigms, reshaping ideas, challenging beliefs, evolving pictures, and adopting novel methods to explore myself. I have always loved photography, but I’ve now come to recognize that there’s a deeper layer beyond just lighting, framing, and composition. It’s about the essence within the photo and the inspiration that drives the artist to craft such meaningful art. I loved it!
Starting from 11 o’clock, I eagerly awaited my message, knowing it was coming. The instructions consistently brought me happiness and a sense of surprise. These messages became my main motivation throughout the pandemic, especially during the challenging month of January, which felt like the end of the world and when regular gatherings and holidays were barely recognizable. Encouraging our imagination has been the most significant gift you’ve given us. Thank you so much, and I already find myself longing for more. Thank you.
This course unveiled to me the process of accepting myself and rediscovering freedom. It amplifies the way you look at things without adhering to stereotypes. Objects transform into subjects. It has enabled me to express my sensual side without society’s imposed sexual connotations. I now live and appreciate my body, thoughts, and how I perceive life’s internal and external elements. This opportunity serves as a reminder of the numerous people we love and who love us. Just like a cherished keepsake, it reminds us of our unique journeys. My days have become filled with vivid colors, images, and beauty. Thank you.
I am so grateful for this experience. I value genuine dedication and support in guiding individuals, whether embarking on their initial photographic journey or already acquainted with lighting and composition. I extend my gratitude for offering a fresh perspective on photography – an approach that’s both accessible and yet presents its own set of challenges. I wait anxiously for the new courses to get to know myself better and enjoy other people’s photography around the world like me.
It is so lovely when someone helps you collect everything inside you. For me, this experience felt like a rediscovery. Thank you so much!
A marvelous experience! It has allowed me to contemplate matters and dismantle any fears or barriers. I’ve gained insights into myself and the world around me. This experience has been entirely novel and fulfilling. It is great knowing I’m not the only crazy one, hahaha. Thank you so much, ANDANAfoto.
Hello! I found this journey to be amazing. This year, I chose to spend December 31st alone, away from family and friends. This course helped me better understand myself and recognize how I used activities to mask certain aspects. I learned to acknowledge my viewpoints and thoughts. While I couldn’t complete all the exercises, I intend to take my time over the upcoming days to work through them. Thank you so much! This experience has been beautiful.
