Last week, Tim and I announced that we are planning a workshop for photographers in Corsica, France. We are both sooo excited! I completely fell in love with the island when we went there for two weeks four years ago. We packed our car to the rim, which during those days was a small Citroën, and drove through Switzerland, made a pit-stop at the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy and hoped on the ferry in Livorno to the French island.
The first thing you notice as you step out on the island is that fresh smell of herbs as if the place has been trenched in tea bags. We spent the next couple of weeks driving from one corner of the island to the next, pitching our tent either directly at the beach, next to the river bank or in the middle of the forest. Tim’s family had a vacation home there and so he grew up travelling there every year, spending weeks at time – therefore, he has an intimate connection to the island, and it was like I was visiting his second home.
This year, we took our little baby boy along with us! It was a reminder of how much we missed Corsica and how fantastic it would be to offer a workshop there. Tim had recently attended a workshop in Iceland led by Sascha Kraemer and Marko Marinkovic and was blown away by the experience…and the images that he was able to produce in such an exotic location were amazing. Since then, I have signed up to attend The Rural Workshop in Barcelona this coming March. We just love having the opportunity to connect with other photographers, to learn and to expand our portfolio.
That is exactly what we want to offer other photographers through our workshop in Corsica. It is specifically tailored to photographers who want get started in marketing towards and booking destination weddings. We are aiming to create an atmosphere of fun, knowledge-sharing and networking. Moreover, we are embarking upon this journey with a fellow photographer, Oleg Trushkov, who will bring in a lot of value to the group by sharing his own experiences and unique perspective. The details are slowly coming into place, but we could not wait to share our plans with you for 2018!
If you are a photographer, please let me know in the comments, what you would love such a workshop to include in order to make the investment more than just worthwhile. I am so looking forward to reading your thoughts!
