Benefits of Partnerships:

The partnerships, always with the objective of symbioses among people and institutions in favor for “better Photography” and all, allow for adjustments to the basic schemes “the root”, “the trunk” and “the creative crown”. These are for simplifying the access to areas, better information and guidance, or to reduce the costs to participants.

In the situation of reducing costs, the registration costs may be significantly lowered, depending on the simplification. Being clear for pedagogy and professional ethics, such reduction will always be at the cost of simplifying the Workshop and not devaluing the work of the instructor/photographer. E.g., not providing participants as much time and attention, or not making any critical evaluation of the resulting photographs. In these situations, other discounts are not applicable. Such reductions do not necessarily imply the conveyance of payment to any of the parts.
