Portugal Workshop Retreat May 2014 - $1930

965.00

Join food photographers & stylists Beth Kirby of Local Milk and Sanda Vuckovic Pagaimo of Little Upside Down Cake this May and experience spring on the Portuguese coast while participating in a hands on food and lifestyle photography & styling workshop retreat.

We will be staying at the Uva Do Monte: Blueberry Farm, a gorgeous, completely renovated farmhouse located a short walk from Praia da Aberta Nova, a pristine, near deserted beach with white sands & breathtaking blue sea where we will enjoy an on location shoot & picnic during one of our workshop days. 

With only 8 spots available this will be an intimate 4-day retreat over the course of which you'll learn technical skills that will give you the freedom to realize your own style & vision and to imbue your visual work with both a sense of narrative and personality. We will be covering the capturing of process shots, prop selection, composition, creating a sense of perfect imperfection, working with varying natural light, camera basics like exposure and aperture, editing & post-processing, and the more ephemeral subject of finding your own visual voice.

The goal of the workshop is not to teach you how to tell your story, but rather to teach you how to master the tools of camera, light, and composition to create photos that reflect yourself & the story you want to tell. Our focus will be on both mastering technical skills as well as thinking about & discussing the creative process. 

The workshop is a come one, come all affair and everyone from all walks of life are welcome from the beginner to more advanced students, from the curious to the passionate. It will be a weekend of leisurely cooking & baking, photography, building new relationships, exploring the local culture & landscape, and, of course, gathering around the table to enjoy beautiful food and each other's company.
