With the growing interest on film photography amongst European wedding photographers, I have been approached multiple times over the past 12 months by wedding photographers eager to know more about film photography. Both from a technical and business standpoint. I’ve been questioning myself for long, to know if I had something specific to offer, given the numerous workshops already up and running on the market. After thinking that through, the answer was yes and I could definitely share my experience in shooting weddings on film, as well as my business background. I’ve decided to share it and put that at the service of photographers being at the edge of switching their business to film, and wondering which stage to begin with.
I however wanted to add something more to this workshop than just my personal experience. That’s why I gathered a holistic team of 12 creatives, who are amongst the best wedding vendors on the European market. It was also important to me to have the physical presence of my beloved lab – Richard Photo Lab – so that Brian (owner) and Sophia (marketing director) can speak about how your lab can become your key business partner in your venture, just like they did for me.
I’m thrilled to announce the kick off of Light.
Light is an all-inclusive 4-day film photography workshop held in the heart of Provence. Light addresses 15 confirmed wedding photographers from around the world (workshop held in English), who think about switching their wedding photography business from digital to film, and wonder where to start from a technical or business standpoint. I will be running class sections to cover the basic aspects of shooting film in any lighting conditions, as well as the business constraints and implications. Richard Photo Lab, through its owner Brian Greenberg and Marketing Director Sophia Fox, will be there to speak about how your lab can be a key partner of your business growth.
Held at fabulous Les Domaines de Patras, in the heart of Provence, Light will immerse you in the Provencial easy lifestyle during 4 days. Surrounded by lavender fields and olive groves, you will enjoy the outstanding organic food and wine made by our own Chef. A creative team of some of the best European vendors will be there to style and design beautiful things in a dreamy landscape.
Each day will have its own styled shoot designed by a unique stylist (Lavender&Rose, MadeInYou, Branco Prata) and enhanced by outstanding artists such as Rime Arodaky (bridal design), Laetitia C. (floral design), Ciara Costenoble and Charles Gillman (hair and make-up), who will all be here to make this experience unique.
