Nina Bennett
Professional Photo Trainer

Born in Wuppertal, studied in Düsseldorf for 10 years, now she lives in Berlin. As a professional photographer working in the fields of advertising, fashion and lifestyle, Nina is constantly faced with the challenge of meeting the wishes of her customers while still bringing her own visual signature to the pictures. This is something that makes this job absolutely exciting and varied for her. In her personal projects, she coordinates topics such as alternative life plans and gender studies, preferably while still working on film. Dreamy or direct, sometimes soft, sometimes bold, her works always aim to tell stories. Sometimes their own and sometimes it’s up to the recipients, what they like to see in it and maybe even a piece of their own.

My impression after a beginners course: Far from a professional school of photography. A very old-fashioned presentation was shown for the introduction. There was no apparent concept to me all day...I didn't learn anything that I wouldn't have learned better from books or YouTube tutorials. The handout that was sent to us later was not very informative. Plus point: Bettina called me after this review to see what she could do better. Unfortunately, the conversation and their arguments did not convince me and I still cannot recommend the course.

I loved the "Nature Photo Experience" course! Was a super interesting setting for a the course and was a great way to get out of the city and see the forest in a new way.

My partner and I did the Level 1 course with Alberto and really enjoyed the course and our day! Alberto was a professional and thorough teacher while still leaving lots of time to ask questions and get creative. Would definitely recommend this course to anyone hoping to learn more about their camera and start to embark on their first steps to becoming a better photographer.

I highly recommend the Forest Photography course to anyone who wants to learn more about photography and be closer to nature. Bettina is very inspiring, full of interesting stories and a skilled photographer. She hosted us in an idyllic setting, thought us the most important photography techniques and guided us on a forest bathing to awaken our senses and creativity before we could wander off on our own to put all that we learned into practise. We concluded the day with soup and cake and reviewing the photos that we took that day. For me it was an amazing experience.
