Bratislava Photography Workshop

Digital Analogue

Let’s imagine a future where presets give way to nailing photos in camera, where in-camera simulations reign supreme. Instead of investing heavy efforts into editing, in-camera photos are enough. It’s an intriguing thought experiment. Picture this: you photograph a wedding and afterwards, either cull one round or simply give all the JPEGs over. Would you do it?

Whether you would or not, we’re hosting a workshop in Bratislava on August 27th, 2024 where the focus is on nailing it in camera. Drilling down further, camera simulations where JPEGs become your best friend.

Wedding Photography Workshop in Bratislava

While the theme of JPEGs will be woven throughout the day, this is ultimately a wedding workshop. As such, we’ll be photographing couples in wedding attire in various scenarios throughout the day. If you’re not particularly interested in JPEG settings, but want to enhance your portfolio with stunning scenes from Bratislava, this workshop is still perfect for you.

Why Bratislava

Over the years with Way Up North, we’ve gained a pulse on what you want. After hosting the show in Prague, we heard your whispers about wanting an event in Bratislava. So, fast-forward to August 27th, and we have our first foray to Slovakia.


If you’ve attended Way Up North, you’ve seen Ondrej Rychnavský on stage and at the parties DJ’ing. Alongside his partner Adriana Mižigárová, they’ve become the faces you see in the theatres.

Here’s what you might not know – they’re from Bratislava. And more relevant to this workshop, Ondrej is a remarkable talent with a passion for portraits. An accomplished wedding and portrait photographer, his skills have led him down many paths, one being the expertise of in-camera film simulations.

Alongside Ondrej will be Cole Roberts, who shares Ondrej’s passion for JPEGs. Together, they’ll steer the ship in Bratislava for the workshop.
