Please join us for a photography retreat designed around inspiration and relaxation. This will be a collaborative event so let's get our share on during a model shoot, winery tour, team building activities, attendee presentations, and of course social times. There is much to be learned from participation in our photo competition that everyone is encouraged, but not required, to take part in. This retreat involves attendees sharing and learning from each other. Be prepared to share one thing that you excel in or are passionate about. We have rented out a house in the Finger Lakes. The house sleeps 14 comfortably or there is a hotel about 15 minutes away, at your own cost, if you prefer less of a summer camp atmosphere. To keep the cost down, attendees will be providing the food. We ask that everyone bring one item to share for a meal and your own beverages. Be prepared to have fun while LEARNING, GROWING and Getting yourself and your photography business back into FOCUS!
