- Do i need a professional camera to attend this workshop? 
No need to have a professional camera to attend. Of course, this means you won't be able to try all the techniques we will be talking about, but still, you can learn everything we will be talking about and you might decide to get a new camera if you find yourself really interested and want to take your skills to the next level. 

- Will I get a certificate? 
Well, somehow. For the people that will attend this workshop and continue to take the advanced workshop, you will receive a paper stating that you've covered these topics of photography.
