Inspire[d] Victoria – Photography Retreat - August 2018 (25% Deposit)
Please note: This is a 25% Deposit for Inspire[d] Victoria
This retreat is being held August 6-10th, 2018 in Victoria, BC.
Thank you for your interest in taking part of INSPIRE[D] Victoria – This is a 5 day retreat for those who want to take an adventure and surround themselves with others who are as equally excited to learn and better their craft. I am at my best when I am inspired, and I want the same for you. I love nothing more than spending time with others who are as equally crazy into what they do and want to push their own limits. During my workshops, my aim is to spend quality time with my attendees and show them what feeds my soul – I want you to feel the same when you shoot alongside me as well as back at home when you pick up your camera.
Building connections and learning from one another is the foundation for inspiring the soul – I want you to leave with a breath of fresh air, an inspired soul and new friends.
WHEN AND WHERE?
This retreat is being held August 6-10th, 2018 in Victoria, BC – on the beautiful coast of Vancouver Island. We will all be staying at a beautiful guesthouse with easy access to the beach.
All attendees must schedule flights or ferry into Victoria (Sidney Airport [YYJ] or Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal) on August 6th (or earlier if you are making a bigger trip out of it) arriving no later than 2pm. We will be leaving the guesthouse by noon on August 10th, so flights should be booked for the evening to ensure enough time to get to the airport.
COST AND WHAT IS INCLUDED?
The price of this workshop is $2500 Canadian + Tax (approximately $2000 USD + Tax). The cost includes 4 nights accommodation, transportation from the airport and back, along with 1-2 meals per day (there will be times we will go out for dinners/breakfasts to treat ourselves!). This workshop is limited to 6 attendees on a first come basis (a 25% deposit is required to secure your spot, and is only refundable if you are able to find someone to fill your spot). The learning doesn’t stop after the workshop, as you will be added to my private mentor group on facebook where you can ask any questions, receive tips and tricks, be part of a close-knit community of photographers and receive exclusive discounts to our shop!
WHAT WILL BE COVERED
We will be shooting at a variety of locations on the southern part of Vancouver Island including the beach, rainforest trails, [smaller] mountaintops, as well as a couple indoor sessions (snuggle sessions or at-home love-fests I call them!). We will be taking advantage of sunrises and sunsets and all the light in between. While this is a photography retreat, we will also make sure to set some time aside for some exploring (this is also supposed to be a holiday for you, too!). Although the itinerary is not set in stone yet, we will be shooting 5-7 sessions together (including a beautiful styled session), both outdoor and indoor. The sessions will mainly be couples, but will likely include a maternity and family session as well.
WHO IS THIS TAILORED FOR?
This retreat is recommended for photographers of all types. Whether you are new to the industry or been at this for years, there is always something to be learned or inspired by – heck, I’m always learning too! This being said, it is recommended that you have a solid understanding of your camera, exposure and manual mode so that the technical side isn’t holding you back from learning the good stuff! If you are a newborn photographer and want some inspiration for getting out there beyond the bean bag, this might be a good transition into broadening your scope and learning that it isn’t so scary working with clients that talk back to you! It is great for those who feel they need a kick to get themselves going again or who are trying to figure out their style or where they want to take their art. It is a place to grow and inspire each other, a place where we can all share our fears and doubts, and a place where we can comfortably feel like we’re all in this together!
I’m excited for this adventure with you!
