During this 4-day workshop, we accompany you, help you with accommodation, travel, and discuss any subject and questions. We try to give you the keys to understand how some photographers do to be so successful and travel so much.
Fine art Shoot style organized during this workshop in real wedding estates in Provence, plus photo session organized in the seaside, in the olive groves, vineyards, and old villages of Provence
The program can be slightly modified according to weather constraints and organization
During each of the 3 days dedicated to the shooting, we will change the model, the dress, the decoration.
The organization of a Shooting Style is sometimes complicated, expensive and time consuming. This is why I organize with my team several different Style shots in order to allow you to leave with a maximum of usable images.
The sessions take place in groups of 2 people with a given time. The goal is to be able to let you express yourself without the embarrassment of others around you.
