Course material use and confidentiality clause
Related to our work together and the material provided in the Julia Anna Gospodarou Fine Art courses and especially the copyrighted ideas and study material, as my book, my processing workflow methods and tutorials, the content of the assignments and the ideas I share with you during this course, in general, what I share with you privately and is not public content as blog articles or YouTube videos, please keep this material for personal use and do not distribute it publicly or share it with others online or offline.
Please be aware that a number of concepts and ideas we will be studying during our work together, like (en)Visionography™, Photography Drawing™, PhtD™, Architectural Street Photography™ and other specific concepts we will discuss about, are original concepts and ideas and they are considered copyrighted intellectual property of their author, Julia Anna Gospodarou, and supposed to be used as such. Also, the layout and structure of the course are subject to the same copyrights and confidentiality agreement between us and are meant for your individual use and not to be shared with thirds or publicly, or redistributed in the same form or modified.
Also, please do not record video with any means, professional or even phone, without my specific agreement, of our live interactions/lessons/demonstrations, practical or theoretical, either online or offline.
Your respecting this confidentiality clause makes it possible for me to freely share with you, without withholding anything, everything I know, and that I have developed in years of study and practice, since I will have the certainty that it will be used for your own growth as an artist and photographer and not to be redistributed.

By attending any Julia Anna Gospodarou Fine Art course, you agree with these conditions and confidentiality clause and commit to respecting them, as an official agreement bound by international law, between me, the educator, and you, the student.
The information provided in the Julia Anna Gospodarou Fine Art courses, also by me personally through my feedback to the student’s work is based on my personal opinions and teaching methods and cannot be considered universal photography method that would cover every need a photographer/student might have. I do my best to give the most useful tuition to my students but if my methods don’t bring the results the student hopes for, I cannot be held responsible for this. The learning process has to do with many factors among which the commitment of the student and the time he invests in his learning process, also the desire to become better and how much the photography style I am teaching suits his personal style and if he wants to learn it. Therefore, I cannot be held responsible if the images the student creates after the course are not the ones he expected before starting. This situation hasn’t happened before, on the contrary, most students I have worked with have won awards and distinctions with their photography after working with me, but I have to mention this, also as a piece of advice for the student to work hard to realize his goals in photography.
By signing up/paying for a Julia Anna Gospodarou Fine Art Photography workshop/course/activity you agree with the terms and conditions in this document.
The present terms and conditions may be subject to change without notice.
