Our next workshop will be held in Provence, France in April 22-25th, 2018. The workshop offers a 3-day hands-on experience on how to offer the finest for your clients, your fellow vendors, and last but not the least, for yourself - using your talent and art. We will engage in one-on-one sessions, with professionals, to review your work. The sessions will offer nuances on how to elevate your work, and, provide marketing tips on standing out in the crowd.
As a part of this workshop, you will capture the work of professional vendors - stylists, designers, calligraphers, florists, and, models - thereby providing you with rich photographing experience.
In this workshop, you will be guided on how to make the best of natural light. You will also learn to choose the right equipment for every defining occasion. In addition, we will discuss styling details, posing people, and capturing the finer aspects of an event.

This workshop is not an exclusive event.
We welcome wedding photographers from all backgrounds. Whatever your experience level may be - we feel every moment can be a truly learning experience.
We strongly believe every photographer has put great thought into choosing their equipment - film or digital - to showcase their talent. What we want is to lend a hand so you can raise your level using the same tools that have defined your art.
