Last but not least - Peter Bialobrzeski on ISSP (17 October 2010):

ISSP 2010 was the best photography event I have participated in this year. Teaching there was special, a childhood-like summer with plenty of lovely people, fellow teachers and workshop participants likewise. The workshop was an intense work experience with a lovely holiday feel about it!

It was a wonderful experience teaching at ISSP. In this quiet rustic location the students immersed themselves into photography, into themselves.

Welcoming, strong, international, wild, professional, warm, free… the ISSP team produces a perfect cocktail to open up some crazy space for creation.

George Georgiou on ISSP (29 August 2010):

The organization, energy and enthusiasm of ISSP founders is contagious and sets the scene for the whole event. The remoteness of the location brings an intensity that is bonding for all who take part. The inspiration, friendships and energy will live with many for a long time. A week of great creativity and soul searching for all involved.
