“People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds, it is something one creates”. ~ Thomas Szasz
All artists have a voice, whether they know it or not.
More often it’s not a case of finding your voice, but rather learning how to use the one you have.
Sometimes it helps if we start by finding a beautiful place to get lost.
A dovecote, a mill, a small house, a chapel, a sheepfold, a washhouse and a scattering of charming Provençal cottages.
This is the place where we’ve chosen to do just this.
On 17-19th September 2013 we’re holding our first European Field Trip in Provence, France.
A quiet little haven on two hectares, South of the Alpilles, nestled between charming little villages, encircled by groves of almonds & olives, lavender & limestone.
This will be an opportunity to clear your mind of life’s unimportant anxieties, take a deep breath and spend 3 days with us.
We’re so fortunate to have an incredible team of artisans on board to make sure it’s not only an educational experience, but also visually inspiring, complementing the magic backdrop of Provence. One of France’s premiere stylists Kerry Bracken will be working with us to create the most beautiful styling for our shoots. The epitome of romance in the form of Claire Pettibone gowns will be gracing our lovely models thanks to Blackburn Bridal Couture.
We’re only just scratching the surface.
Don’t miss out on this chance to connect, create and explore film photography with us in one of the most beautiful parts of the world.
Each of our Field Trips is only limited to 15, so if you’d like to secure your place, head to our Field Trips booking page and select, Provence, France. If you have anymore questions please feel free to email us – email@example.com
