Who is the workshop for ?

The workshop is for photographers and videographers who are interested in learning about photographing adventurous weddings and elopements. Whether you’ve been in business for 6 weeks or 6 years, I believe there’s something for everyone.

Is Food & Accommodation Included?

Yes! The price includes 4 nights accommodation at Hotel Bon Alpina*** with an “all-inclusive” package, which includes breakfast, lunch & dinner and a selection of drinks. The All-Inclusive package starts with welcome drinks and dinner on the day of check-in and ends at check-out after breakfast on the last day. The drinks package includes beer on tap, house wine, tea, filter coffee and a selection of soft drinks between 10 am and 9 pm. For the days that we will be hiking, a packed lunch will be provided by the hotel.

What are the sleeping arrangements?

You’ll be sleeping in shared single-sex rooms of 2 or 3 people, with an en-suite bathroom. It may be possible to upgrade to a double room for single occupancy for an additional fee (subject to availability at the hotel). Please let me know if you want to upgrade.

What's Not Included?

Transport to/from the retreat, flights, travel insurance, photography equipment, hiking equipment.

CAn i use the images for my portfolio?

Yes. Both the couples who model for the shoots will sign a model release so that you can use the images for your portfolio after the retreat. Whilst I can’t enforce this, I do ask that images taken at the retreat are used honestly – i.e. that you are honest they were taken at a workshop and don’t use them to mislead clients that it was a real elopement.

What language is the retreat taught in?

The retreat will be presented in English.

Do I Need To be an experienced hiker?

You don’t need to have experience hiking, but you do need to have a reasonable level of fitness to take part in the hiking elopement styled shoots. Please bear in mind that we are in the Alps and that we will be hiking up and down, and visiting areas up to 2300m above sea level. The furthest we’ll be hiking will be around 8km / 5 miles.

what about dietary requirements?

I’m a celiac vegetarian, so I know how hard it can be travelling when you have specific dietary needs. The hotel can cater for allergies, and special diets such as vegetarian, vegan, lactose or gluten-free. Please let me know of any dietary requirements or allergies as soon as possible so I can pass them to the hotel.
