161 Photo Experiences: About 161 Photo Experiences


Justin Partyka is pleased to announce a new programme of 161 Photo Experiences.  

Improve your photography skills as you explore the inspiring streets, historic buildings, cultural traditions and daily life in west-central France.  

Justin is an experienced mentor and tutor of photography workshops. He has been photographing for twenty years and has exhibited widely. To inspire you Justin will present his own work and share some of his favourite photo books. The photography instruction will include group and one-on-one practical advice on skills and techniques, review sessions and inspiring discussions.  

The Experiences are based in the fascinating city of Poitiers - a place of the ancient and the modern. Your photography will take place in Poitiers and other nearby towns and cities depending on the specific Photo Experience.  

161 Photo Experiences are aimed at all levels of photographers, beginning at the most basic level.  

The photography tuition of these Experiences is being offered with an early booking price to make them accessible to all. Please book by 29 February 2020 for the reduced rate. Paricipants are required to book their own accommodation and travel plans to fit their own budgets. Advice is available.  


I can understand some British participants concern about booking an Experience in France as Brexit possibly looms upon us. If Boris Johnson's current Brexit agreement goes ahead it will include at least one year transition period so you will be free to travel to France no problem. The Experiences have been scheduled to anticipate that any early travel chaos will have died down by the first Experience in May. And think of it this way, if you let politics control your life, it was won!
