We’ve done some great retreats in our life, but the Adriatic Academy’s photography retreat was absolutely world-class. Their attention to detail of each guest was impeccable. Not to mention the locations they took us to made for a spectacular week of learning photography that we’ll never forget.

Working with Shawn and Anne Marie on the Dalmatia Photo Week retreat was life-changing for us. They introduced us to places in Croatia that we’ll cherish forever. Their knowledge of the area was more than we ever thought we’d learn, not to mention the photos we took could be in an art gallery. Thank you again for everything, we’ll be back with friends next year.

There are photo workshops and retreats, and then there’s the Retreat with the Adriatic Academy. A week with them is an adventurous trek back in time with locations straight out of ancient memoirs. If you are to do only one retreat in your life- this is the one to do.

To learn from a professional photographer like Shawn Frederick is fantastic. It is completely amazing how he will see something we didn’t, and then create an image so beautiful. Not only did we learn a lot, but the week spent traveling around northern Croatia will forever be cherished. If you’re a photography enthusiast you will truly enjoy this retreat.

Our first trip to Croatia, and it was filled with fun, beautiful, and exciting moments. It was a great experience with the added bonus of fantastic photos for our memories. We cannot say thank you enough to Shawn and AnneMarie for not only introducing us this beautiful country but also for showing us how to slow down, enjoy life and take in all the little moments along the way. Forever grateful. We will see you again!
