A one-month workshop designed for complete photography beginners.

Additionally, participants will learn the basics of post-production of photographic images using Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.
Although participants do not need to own their own professional or semi-professional photographic equipment to successfully follow the program, we recommend acquiring it – a digital camera with one or more interchangeable lenses.

Workshop participant reviews
“Great atmosphere, mentors are knowledgeable and friendly. They have a lot of expertise and experience, and they know how to convey it excellently to others. I recommend it to everyone!”
“A dynamic, interesting, and interactive course for anyone looking to enter the world of photography. With Almmir’s patience, dedication, approachability, and creativity, each participant has the opportunity to express themselves through the final photo production, creating motivation for new and different challenges in photography. I am happy and grateful for the whole experience and meeting new wonderful people. See you again at one of the workshops!”
“Almmir Fakić is a person who allowed me to sprinkle 10kg of flour in his studio for the needs of a project shoot, without once pausing or thinking, ‘what on earth.’ I’m writing this not to write a cliché like ‘…at FrameForm studio, every idea is possible…’ but it’s true. Thrilled with the workshop, and signing up for every next one!”
“Excellent workshop! I recommend it to anyone interested in photography; this workshop will turn that interest into a genuine passion for photography, guaranteed. The atmosphere is great, you will learn a lot, and all at a very reasonable price. P.S. If you’re unsure which camera to buy, Almmir will find you one with the best price-to-quality ratio, and during the workshop, you can use the real ‘beast’ he has in the studio, along with all the other equipment.”
“A fantastic course for a group learning photography, whether they already have their own camera or are looking to get one. In just a few weeks, you can acquire all the tools to create a perfectly lit and composed image. It feels more like a gathering of friends with the added bonus of learning very useful information, rather than a course where one person talks and others passively listen. I particularly liked the immediate practical application of what was learned after the theoretical part because things connect right away and fall into place so that you can use them in the future, instinctively. After the course, you gain an awareness of photography, how to set and determine things to achieve the desired result, which is simply a winning combination for future photographers. So, head to FrameForm if you want to photograph like a boss!”

“Learning from someone who lives what they do is always a blessing that reminds you that the only purpose is to do what you love. The selfless sharing of one’s knowledge and gained experience with professional equipment (that you don’t even need to own) in a fully equipped studio is a value that makes the initial affordable investment in the Basic Photography course invaluable. With a relaxed and friendly yet professional atmosphere, photography enthusiasts will step into the world of creative creation, where an exciting experience of their own creation awaits them. Give yourself or your loved ones an experience that will remind you of how important it is to do what we love. Thank you, instructors!”
“I attended the introductory workshop My First Frame, but also had the opportunity to absorb Mr. Fakić’s knowledge on other occasions, and I have only words of praise! An extremely professional yet relaxed approach in a stimulating atmosphere is something rarely found. All my recommendations for Almmir and Ivan! I hope they will continue to enrich little minds and, at the same time, be there for some casual conversations and coffee.”
“I attended the Basic Photography course, and I am thrilled. The atmosphere is entirely relaxed, and the lecturer is a top expert. The course fee is ridiculously low, and the knowledge gained in that month is worth its weight in gold. In the first hour, I learned how to turn on a DSLR camera, and after a few weeks, I captured this portrait. I recommend the course to all photography enthusiasts because there are many practical tasks, including a full day of shooting with a professional model in the studio.”
“I would definitely recommend the FrameForm course to anyone interested in photography. The guys introduce the world of photography in a very interesting, simple, and dynamic way. It’s not just an ordinary course; it’s a place where, along with newfound knowledge, you can gain new experiences and even develop a few friendships. In addition to knowing a lot about photography and film, Almmir and Ivan are excellent hosts who strive to create a warm and homely working atmosphere.”
“Incredibly patient, flexible, always in a good mood, and mentors armed with knowledge. Long story short: Go for it, people!”
“I definitely recommend Frame Form! The studio is excellent, with a pleasant atmosphere, top-notch equipment, and a professional team that excels in their work. You can see that they enjoy what they do; whatever you request or ask, they will realize and help with everything. Highly recommended! Whether you want to learn everything about photography and shooting or need a photoshoot or video, you don’t have to hesitate; they are the best choice.”
“Definitely a course that leaves no one indifferent because Almmir’s laid-back yet highly professional approach and enthusiasm for photography are infectious, encouraging participants to embark on new explorations and challenges. The course is well-conceived: theory intertwined with photography exercises and lighting, which ceases to be a mystery. In the end, instructor Ivan demonstrates how to ‘fix’ our photos in Photoshop. Almmir is an approachable and playful lecturer who wants to reveal a new world to his participants, making it unlikely that someone’s camera will end up on the shelf again, waiting for better times after these months.
Of course, the adventure doesn’t end here because… thanks, Almmir… we’ll probably ‘bother’ you with photography and camera questions for a long time.”

“Excellent studio, friendly professor, pleasant atmosphere, and the best team. Almmir is an excellent teacher who patiently and determinedly introduces us amateurs to the world of photography, lighting, and composition. As a bonus, Ivan teaches you a lot about Photoshop and how to edit photos. A month of great fun, lots of new information, and practical execution. After everything, we are more than confident in our knowledge and ability to venture into the world with a camera in hand. Warm recommendation to everyone!”
“I am truly delighted with the Basic Photography workshop. Photography has become extremely interesting to me in the last few years, and I decided to take a course to learn more than tutorials on the internet. I was pleasantly surprised by the theoretical and especially practical knowledge I gained from Prof. Fakić. He is extremely approachable and professional, and the atmosphere in the newly renovated, fully equipped studio is relaxed and wonderful. I warmly recommend anyone interested in photography or those who have bought a camera and don’t know how to use it properly to join this workshop and enter the world of photography a bit more seriously, funnily, and creatively. Professors, a big thank you for your knowledge and friendly approach.”
