What is this Retreat about ?
These workshops are designed for both the novice writer and photographer as well as for the more experienced person. The very talented Bea Davenport, a former BBC Journalist will be working with us and inspiring us with her extensive knowledge of travel Writing.
Overall the emphasis will be on Composition Colour and Developing the Skills of Story Telling through the use of Photography.
Our creative journey will take us deep into the source of our photography and writing as we find our inspiration in the newness of a cultural landscape and physical terrain that has never before been experienced. Each day we will set out on an excursion into Penne and/or the surrounding countryside where we will take a series of photographs with a Professional photographer who will be available to assist and guide us with all our technical needs . With the medieval buildings, mountain landscapes and the wonderfully charming towns-people to inspire us we will have no end of opportunities to indulge our photographic passions. After the photo shoot we will head back to the retreat where we we will progress our creative projects with writing workshops and afternoon sharing.
You may also chose to work with and/or include some images you have brought with you from a previous journey or from the place you live. A combination of images will work just as well as the emphasis on these workshops will be on building the skill of 'How to tell your own unique story using Images' and your stories.
Please note that the mode of photography used for this Retreat will be digital so all images will be produced via a computer rather than the more traditional methods of photography.
Please make sure you bring a fully functioning camera and computer and all the necessary accessories as there may not be an opportunity in the town of Penne to buy other things such as batteries and/or battery charges.
