APIIC Photography Workshops

Dear members,

TPC was kinda inactive this month due to the semester break, however, in the meantime we (credits to Boon) have collaborated with APIIC Academy, which provides short courses on photography.
Now, the best part is, APIIC is willing to give us discounts for their workshop. If the response on our side is good, we will get more choices. Though the price may be expensive even with the discount, it is worth it. Have a look at their pics before you decide. All of the facilitators have at least 20 years of experience. (!)

Just remember to bring your student card, as for non-Taylorian member, please contact Boon (0175547576 sms) if you wanna go.
