Photography Workshops

Photography 101

A crash course in photography that will leave you feeling inspired to create. You’ll learn from industry leaders who have honed their experience into practical steps to help you stand out online. From the technical (Aperture, Shutterspeed, etc) to the aesthetic (framing the shot, lighting, etc), you’ll learn how to establish a photography style that speaks the language of your brand. You don’t need any prior experience and we’ll teach you with the gear you already have, so you can start taking pictures that you’re dying to show off!

Photo Editing with Lightroom

Step two of creating that perfect brand imagery and inspiring, Instagrammable, moment happens in post production. You may think Lightroom is only for “professionals”, but that’s you now, and we’re going to show you exactly how to establish an editing style for your brand. Your feed will never be the same!

Lifestyle & Street Photography

Lifestyle & street photography is all about capturing real-life moments and telling a story through your photos. Morocco will be the perfect place to practice capturing these special and interesting moments and create some beautiful work!

Landscape Photography

Ever wonder how those stunning photos of vast landscapes are captured while scrolling through Instagram? While traveling through Morocco, we’ll have the opportunity to dive deeper into Landscape photography and put our newfound skills to use!

Food Photography

It sounds easy – there’s the food, now take a photo of it. But the masters know that a lot more goes into creating stunning food photography shots we all know and love on Instagram! We’ll be indulging in some incredible Moroccan food along this journey and will have the opportunity to learn how to set up a food shot, lighting, and the angles needed to capture those perfect drool-worthy shots.

Our Signature Retreats are designed for women creatives, entrepreneurs, small business owners, and bloggers looking to learn the skills and strategies needed to succeed in the digital world. During our 7-day retreats, we run workshops on topics like; personal branding, building a community online, social media growth, passive & active income strategies and more. We also teach photography 101 and Lightroom editing 101 – these are basic courses that teach how to use your camera in manual, and basic editing techniques to improve your photos.

Our Advanced Mastermind Retreats are designed for the blogger, influencer, or entrepreneur that already has a foundation in blogging, social media, and SEO, and is ready to take their blog or brand to the next level and learn advanced skills in earning money online. If you’ve put in the time and effort and are ready to reap the benefits through affiliate programs, advanced SEO tricks and using Tailwind to skyrocket traffic…You’re in the right place!

We will focus on practicing photography throughout this 9-day adventure and collaborating with one another. So let’s do this! Join us on an adventure of a lifetime and create photos so beautiful that will make you excited to go home and redecorate your walls with all the beautiful photos you took!

Do you cater for dietary requirements?

Yes! We can accommodate most diets, allergies and dietary restrictions, just make sure to let us know. We work hard to serve very healthy, clean and local produce while on the retreat.

Prior to the retreat we will have you fill out a “Pre-Arrival Form” where you can indicate your specific needs.
