I have know Irakly for well over a decade now. Over the years I have been lucky enough to have seen him work and teach. In all my years of learning I have seen quite a few world famous photographers speak and attended dozens of workshops. I can say that to this day Irakly is without a doubt the best of the best. He possesses immense technical knowledge but it’s his authentic point of view and absolute honesty that makes him the person you’ll want to learn from. He brings the notion of “shooting with a purpose” to a whole new level. Whether its his street photography, portraits or conceptual fine art work he is a master of story telling with uncanny attention to details. What’s more, he teaches in the same efficient and purposeful manner he shoots and that is not easy.
