As a Photo coach today it makes it easier for people to come close to themselves through the experiential workshops "Photographing with the click of our hearts" in inspiring places and themes such as the "forgotten tribes of Ethiopia", "the Sufiki celebration of forgiveness in the oasis of Siua", the "Safari in Tanzania", the "Multiculturalism of Acharnon Street", the "Easter in Mani", the "Oman".
It finds it important to get in touch with themselves for the bonding of the group of business people through the process of experiential workshop, where participants meet their inner inspiration and creativity to connect more authentically with the team members and with higher performance and joy in their work.
They have called Maro a "photographer of the heart" because she unlocks hearts and connects the mind with the heart. The heart clicks and the moment it feels the emotion you press the camera button by clicking the heart, the photo, flooded with gratitude.
