The FFF AKADEMIE offers practical input especially for photography beginners with the FFF workshop series “EYES ON Frankfurt”.


Looking at the cityscape of Frankfurt with a new perspective, finding pictures in urban space, testing the possibilities of the camera, deepening one's own skills with practical tips from professionals - these goals are the focus of the afternoon workshops.

The motto is “learning by doing”: groups of a maximum of ten participants go to selected destinations in the city to practice angles, use of light and motif design, or to try out street photography, portrait photography and architectural photography. They receive support and expertise from professionals: the FFF Frankfurt workshops are led by Markus Seibel and Thomas Keydel, both multi-skilled and experienced photographers. Some destinations include Frankfurt's Ostend district and Frankfurt’s parks.

With its four hectares of space, the Hafenpark in Frankfurt’s East End is the perfect stage for urban adventure. Situated at the foot of the ECB and directly on the Main River, the park is a destination for day trippers, skaters and residents – and an ideal vantage point for interesting perspectives on people, business, architecture and nature.


Professionally supported by Markus Seibel, the participants of EYES ON Frankfurt practice integrating creative variables such as closeness, width, depth, space or light into the image composition, emphasizing the details of a motif and making optimal use of their own equipment.


Professional photographic equipment is not required for participation.

If desired, participants can use cameras from FFF sponsored by FUJIFILM.​​​​​​​

Already during his communication design studies at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences, Markus Seibel traveled throughout Europe for his long-term study "Europe's Autumn" (beginning in 2012) to document the situation and fates of refugees and migrants along escape routes across the continent. The photo project has since received national and international recognition and awards and has been exhibited globally. In addition to his regular excursions into nature, especially into the mountains, the Rhine-Main region, Berlin, and daily life and the events in the urban landscape are continuous themes in his photographic work. Markus Seibel works in a classic documentary style while combining his image concepts in an organic way.
