    Explorer Package

    The camera is a powerful tool! Let's explore what is happening around us together during a half-day photo tour in the Hannover region. Don't let the quiet image of the city fool you, a lot is happening here if you just look carefully. I am sure we can learn from each other. In addition, I will show you where and how I developed the photobook. Alternatively, we can also travel to an exciting event inside Germany to cover what is going on there together. This will slightly depend on my traveling schedule.
    During lunch or dinner we can discuss photography, current affairs and whatever you have on your mind. The only thing I won't be able to cover are your travel expenses. But of course you won't go home without your signed and peronalized copy of "Yalla Habibi".

    After the campaign closes we will set a date that suits you.
