- Do i need a professional camera to attend this workshop?
No need to have a professional camera to attend. Of course, this means you won't be able to try all the techniques we will be talking about, but still, you can learn everything we will be talking about and you might decide to get a new camera if you find yourself really interested and want to take your skills to the next level.

- Will I get a certificate?
Well, not really a certificate. For the people that will attend all four workshops, you will receive a paper stating that you've attended a workshop that covered these topics of photography.
