Join Sanda of LittleUpsideDownCake & me for a 5 night photography and lifestyle retreat in Croatia.

 

This October (5th – 9th) we will call the tiny island of Zlarin home. Set just a few miles offshore from the Croatian mainland, this picturesque island is one of the only a handful on the Adriatic Sea where  cars are not allowed, making it an idyllic spot to nurture the imagination and encourage relaxation.

 

Tucked away in this beautifully rugged little seaside paradise, dotted with fig and cypress trees, we will have the chance to fill our lungs with fresh salty air and awaken our creative spirits. Here, in this intimate setting, we will delve into the creative process, exploring the art of photography and styling. You will learn how to create, shoot & style still life scenes and we will discuss the use of natural light, camera mechanics, prop selection and scene creation.

 

Over the 5 days, we will also explore the local lifestyle and regional cuisine of the island from leisurely al fresco lunches in the garden to boat rides on the brilliant blue Adriatic. A visit to one of the area’s most well known vineyard is also on the itinerary.  

 

While days will be dedicated to learning and exploration, evenings will focus on the simple joys of gathering, sharing meals and  the camaraderie of conversation. This time to reflect and relax is as important as our information filled days to fostering the creative process and finding personal inspiration. Our rustic island house will serve as the gathering space for us throughout the workshop and its large table a lively assembling place.

 

We hope you will join us in Croatia this October! We look forward to meeting you.
