We’ll be stocking a fridge with a bunch of snacks to keep us happy while we’re there. You’ll want to cover anything you eat out at restaurants though.
We’ll be renting a villa just outside the national park. One large enough not only to sleep the entire group, but to give us space to edit, play and give our adventures a home base.
When we take outings as a group, We’ve got you guys covered. Everything from canoe rides to mountain fun .
We’ll take care of getting everyone around comfortably. However, You’ll want to be able to get into the town of Banff on your own. If you don’t want to rent a car. Banff has a ton of recommended transport options here
Cait Del Mar
The most under-represented perspective in portrait photography is that of the model. As a community we’ve developed the bad habit of assuming the photographer is the only source of creative direction. This ends now.
So for this retreat, we’re joined by two powerhouses of knowledge. Cait & Hannah.
Articulate and experienced, these two are not only our models but our guides to understanding the perspective of a subject. Providing insights we as photographers have only dreamt of.
What will i learn?
Despite Mark and I shooting similar subject matters. Our process, style, ideals and techniques couldn’t be more different.
By learning from both our perspectives you’ll get a well rounded guide forging your own path into portrait and lifestyle photography. We’ll be covering A TON of stuff but heres an idea of what we’ll be focusing on during the workshop.
Portrait / Adventure photography
Challenges of Indoor & outdoor lighting
Minimalistic editing / Composites
Working with professional models to everyday people
Generating passive & active income from photography
Time management as an artist
Maintaining mental health in a social media world
What kind of adventures will we be having?
This depends on a few things. Mostly group size and combined physical ability. However, since we’re in Hawaii. Expect to be able to spend timing hiking, exploring and swimming around. Maybe even some time on a boat!
What should I pack?
You’ll want to pack with two goals in mind. Photography & outdoor adventure. This means as much camera gear you feel comfortable bringing, your computer to edit, Hiking gear and warm weather clothes and swimwear too.
