Cait Del Mar


Kara Kozuma

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 & Kara.

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.
