I was looking forward to The Rural Workshop for a few months – I was actually very lucky to be able to attend, because when I saw it being advertised I was on a road trip in Denmark and by the time I was home and ready to purchase a ticket, it was sold out. Let me tell you, I was not ready to give up! I wrote the organizer, Roberto Ramos, asking if there was any chance to get a ticket. He informed me that it was booked out, but if an opportunity arises, he will be in touch – well, he clearly is a man of his word.

I can only say that my expectations of the workshop were not only met, but exceeded. I had the most amazing time chatting with not only a lot of the speakers, but fellow photographers from all over Europe and Brazil. What really impressed me is that there were no egos involved, just people who love what they do and are ready to share their knowledge. Honestly, having a “K” behind your Instagram follower number does not matter.
I was able to attend sessions led by:
as well as general talks by:
In the upcoming weeks, I will share my main take aways from each session on this blog, so stay tuned.
(I have already uploaded some photos from the photo shoot that we did with Chris & Ruth – you can view them here.)
I am also very excited that I got to conduct my first interview with Björn from Hafenliebe! He is such a cool guy and very open. He talked to me about finding a niche in the wedding photography industry and how to create an all around matching branding concept – trust me, there is so much golden information that you can use in your business! Coming soon…
Here are just a few snapshots from the workshop. Enjoy!
And an extra shout out to the two ladies that I shared a cabin with, Sara & Martina. You two made my experience at The Rural that much more special! <3
