For the past few years, I’ve aspired to teach workshops here in the US for those who may be unable to travel to France, but have a strong desire to learn how to style professional visuals that reflect their brand and connect with their following. My objective in creating new workshops was simple; to design one-day intensive sessions that focus solely on styling exceptional images. This first series of workshops in the San Francisco area will kick off my plans of extending them across the nation in the coming year. I hope to see you at one!
Today’s the day! New dates for The Academy – France are set and registration is NOW OPEN!
UPDATE: SOLD OUT
The Academy – Dordogne, France – May 19-25, 2018
I’m happy to announce that once again, we will be heading to the Dordogne region of France next spring to host another Styling & Photography Workshop for Creatives. During our week together we will immerse ourselves in the French lifestyle while we wander the local food markets, browse an annual brocante in search of props, and walk the ancient cobblestone streets of medieval villages.
Our workshop sessions will be focused on learning to style with intention and documenting our journey through the art of photography. In essence, all of my favorite things to do while in France!
After our successful day gathering props at the brocante, we were ready to begin utilizing those finds in our styling sessions. In addition to what everyone found for their own prop collections, I set up a table with an assortment of small dishes, linens, fresh produce, herbs and spices, and beautiful artisanal bread.
Our first few mornings at The Academy begin with lectures on the proper techniques and aspects of styling. Starting with the fundamentals, the attendees are able to understand the how & why behind creating stunning that resonate meaning and convey the vision they wish to express. They are then able to implement those concepts and skills as they continue to practice throughout the week. But more importantly, upon returning home, they will have an arsenal of techniques to apply in their own body of work and creative pursuits.
