Sergi is an audiovisual communication professional and wanted to start a brand offering multimedia content creation services; in particular, he wanted to learn how to take professional photos and edit them using professional software. Being curious, he decided to participate in the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs programme he had heard about through his chamber, where he met Miquel, his host entrepreneur Host Entrepreneur. Miquel, a seasoned professional photographer with his own studio but always keen to refresh his knowledge and keep in touch with new trends and schools in photography, was happy to help a young entrepreneur gain new experience; Miguel was particularly experienced in corporate and portrait photography and had published much of his work in international magazines. The two hit it off right away and continued to work together.

The two entrepreneurs undertook many activities around photo shoots, photo reportages and edition. Miguel, the HE, showed the NE very openly what it takes to run a business in the Netherlands and how the market works in the field of photography, including regulation, prices, law, contacts, etc. Their goal was to jointly analyse Sergi's professional and creative position, define his goals and help develop a business strategy. Miquel helped NE to improve his technical and creative photographic skills in corporate, lifestyle and portrait photography, and the two developed creative skills such as lighting, expression and photo composition, as well as technical skills in using flash and camera and editing software.

The NE learned about the similarities and differences between the photographic industry in the Netherlands and Catalonia, especially the most common photographic techniques and regulations in the Dutch market compared to Catalonia. This fruitful exchange will certainly develop into a future collaboration and allowed Sergi to make contacts for other potential projects.
