ABOUT Our Photography RETREATS

General

The goal of our photo retreat/workshops is to simply help you define your vision! To help you see the world in a slightly different way! We’ll always be available to offer a bit of technical advice, if you need- but mostly, we want you expand upon your vision and abilities and capture a new vision for yourself.

We will introduce you to a diverse range of locations and various lighting scenarios that allow you the widest opportunity to make exceptional images that challenge you to be better.

Our retreats are designed to meet the needs of individuals with differing degrees of experience and their individual commitment to the craft of photography. You can be a person that just got into photography, as well as that of a seasoned professional.

in the Field

We aim to spend as much time as possible photographing various locations, all the while taking advantage of the best lighting and weather situations. Our flexibility allows us to respond to photographic opportunities as they present themselves and be available to make changes to our schedule as needed.

Whilst on location, your photography teacher will be alongside you offering technical and creative advice together with practical help and encouragement as you feel needed.

Development and Editing of Your Images

The development process is an integral part of the digital workflow process. It is where you also refine the final image. Our Head of Photography is well-versed in numerous post processing software applications, but in this instance, we will use both Lightroom and Photoshop. If possible but not required, participants may consider bringing a laptop with the previous mentioned image processing/editing software apps already installed. They should also include a RAW conversion app plug-in.

Reviewing and Group Critiques

One of the most exciting and popular times of any photographic retreat is when we get together after our daily shooting session to review and critique each others images in a simple slide show. These sessions are 50/50 creative and technical, and allow us to draw new inspiration from each others images and encourage participants to move forward to that next level by refining the skills necessary for producing images of a consistently high quality.

Last, but definitely not least…

We want you to go home having had an amazing photographic experience and having a lot of fun with your new photo friends! But most importantly, we want you to arrive home with a vast collection of freshly created images that you can share with family, friends, co-workers and put in that new portfolio of yours.
