Participants come from all around the world to attend exclusive programs with GMB Akash. For example, Gerry Huber came from Austria and has completed a One on One workshop with GMB Akash in Bangladesh.
Huber said, “The most important thing I learned from Akash was how to interact with people and how to put them into the right light. Also I learned how to get the best out in low or difficult light situations without flash or tripod. I learned a way how to shortlist my shots of a day in a fast process. My vision changed and developed a lot. I have become very critical about light now whenever I am out for a shooting. People may wonder now why I am always looking straight into their eyes. All my expectations have been met. The days and week at the workshop were just too short. Will I recommend anyone for this exclusive workshop? Yes, Yes, Yes!”
