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 what each guest needed 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 photographically, life-changing for us. They took us to locations that we’ll cherish forever. Shawn’s expert knowledge of the craft of photography, lighting and composition and how to combine them all in real world applications was more than we ever thought we’d learn. Thank you again for everything, we will be back with friends next year.

We are beyond thankful to Shawn, AnneMarie and the Academy team for accommodating our requests and for working with our tough, and often changing family schedule. I give them 5 stars across the board and will continue to recommend them to everyone we know.

There are workshops and retreats, and then there’s the Adriatic Academy. A 10 day week with them is an adventurous trek back in time with locations straight out of ancient textbooks. If you are to do only one retreat in your life- this is the one to do.

To learn from a working professional photographer like Shawn Frederick is beyond fantastic. It is completely amazing how he will see something we didn’t, and then create an image so beautiful of that scene. Not only did we learn a lot, but the week spent traveling throughout Croatia will forever be cherished. If you’re a photography enthusiast wanting to learn real-world applications of your craft, you need to do this photography retreat.

Locations. Locations. Locations. Croatia is as breath-taking as it gets. To experience it with the team at the Adriatic Academy is a Bucket List moment for sure. Thank you so much for the best trip ever!

This was 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 us getting fantastic photos for our memories. We cannot say thank you enough to Shawn and AnneMarie for not only introducing us to 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!
