"I carried out an experiment of photography’s different sides. Taking photos in group with a topic on mind and with a longer time scale. This is something that I had never put forward me. Likewise, I myself got rich, with my classmates’ opinion. We have to take an open mind, much enthusiasm, in order to have a very good time and make new friends. But luck will come for those who enjoy looking at the improvement of our pictures as soon as our exercises move forward and the history is developed. The final result is absolutely satisfactory. I recommend it. Thank you, Kike for sharing your ability to get on well with people." -- Lilia Carrion
"This course was a complete experience for me. The whole times were full of experiences, happiness, laughs, works, bloods, long walks in the old town…. We were making up and ended as a whole so, on Sunday each of one took their own course and we even looked for our best result. I am pretty anxious for the next one, besides Kike I want you know that your way in order to pass on your knowledge is direct enough. Your are a great master! "-- Robert Machazek
"As an amateur in the photography’s land, this course was as a complete experience as a round turn, in addition I achieved to realize the basis of the theatrical procedure of how tell stories. I attained to share my passion with other enthusiastic. It is not often to have direct questions with the photography’s author and share it with the other alumnus. I could understand some techniques and basis in order to be applied when I take my own photography. It was very funny to see how some interpretation and images can be different to each other alumni from one place and time itself. Angle, light, geometry, depth, colorful and so forth. It was really fascinating! " --Tomas Merizalde
