nicole and candice (two of my favorite ladies and rockstar photographers)
have put together a french photo retreat for this upcoming july!
it’ll be taking place in the gorgeous french village of
beynac (about 5 1/2 hours from paris)
where the movies chocolat and ever after were filmed.
the retreat will offer three days of learning and shooting together
in the french countryside with a class size of only about 20 students.
(first come, first served– so go sign up!)
if all works out with some personal summer plans, i hope to be there too!
see a few shoots i’ve done with nicole and candice before,
here and here and here too.
