Join us for a creative photography, storytelling and visual branding retreat in the inspiring Italian countryside.

A place where the raw beauty of the raw Tuscan interiors meet the rustic and moody elegance of food photography. The storytelling goes from interiors, portraits and stills of food.

This's a four-day immersive experience to connect to your vision, ideas and story, and acquire an editor eye to shoot for your clients and for your own contents.

Take the opportunity to free your creative potential alongside with learning actionable photography and videography skills, for thumb-stopping content.

This retreat is a unique opportunity to step away from the daily life and immerse into a deeply nourishing environment where we take care of the group togetherness and each individual creativity. 

Every year we have connected like-minded creatives, and our students have walked away with renewed clarity and energy to pursue their unique journey and business endeavours.

We cannot wait to welcome You on the next retreat!
