“Since Christian Gogolin is located in Germany, I could travel to Hamburg and to meet him. Skype is nice, but actually there is nothing better than a face-to-face meeting. He gave me very good advice, highlighted my strengths and spent time reducing my portafolio from NYC to the best strong photographs, approx. from 20 to 10, and explaining why to me. I did learnt a lot.
He also gave me very good hints to continue developing my photographic style, and offered me the possibility to contact again.
In summary, I feel very much inspired and hopeful about my professional career as a photographer.
He also took care that I took good advantage of my trip to Hamburg and recommended me a photographic exhibition in the nearby about the ‘Café Lehmitz’ project. It was very good!” Ana Rivas
