Retreat FAQ's

What is the difference between a Retreat and a Workshop?

A retreat focuses on incorporating photography with a vacation-like experience. I want to ensure that we connect on a personal level and allow time for relaxation and the enjoyment of the location of our retreat. Good food, good people, and great atmospheres.
A workshop tends to focus more heavily on technical aspects and you learn from one instructor. I like to call myself a Host and we also tend to have guest photographers joining. Each one of us can learn from each other.

Do I need to be an experienced photographer?

Not at all. There is no wrong time to join a retreat. If you're ready to travel and grow, then we're here. You'll also find that other attendees are super helpful as well.

I'm a little shy and nervous. Do we really have to be together all the time?

Yes and no. We are mostly together as a group, that's why I like to keep our retreats small. We do take breaks and this would be a great time to call home, take a walk, eat a snack, whatever you want.

Are beds shared?

We try to give everyone their own bed when it's available. If there are beds that need to be shared, then they will be queens or larger.

Can we use the images we take from the retreat?

Of course! We encourage you to share your work of any/all photos.

We want to sign up, but don't have the full booking deposit?

Please contact me and let me know. We can work something out. Everyone should get to experience a retreat once in their lifetime :)


“You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
