OK, let me get this straight.
You’ve done photography workshops.They were all fine and dandy, but you’re still hungry for something… more.

You’re itching to connect your photographic technique with the artistic, expressive voice inside.


You want that something “extra” to shine through.
A heart & soul connection that can be seen, heard and felt in your work.
In any work, photography & beyond. (After all… life is art!)

 It’s eluded you so far.
But it’s there. You can feel it in your bones. It’s why you keep searching.

You want what you create to sing out your one, true voice.


You want to photograph, create art, LIVE from there.
I get it. On every level.

Know what?

WE CAN DO THIS.
Find your photographic voice.

With me.

In France.

This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity for 1:1 time with me in The French Riviera in the glorious month of June. 
 
You’ll be treated to daily photo walks in medieval villages, in a famous town by the sea and in a village nestled in the hills above the Mediterranean, along  delicious home-cooked meals that nurture mind, body and soul.
 
It's a gathering of like-minded people with a powerful focus;
to discover the land, the people and the food of the South of France…  
through the lens of their deepest and  truest photographic "voice."

WHERE ELSE.. BUT IN CANNES.
"I felt warm, I felt invited and like I could just be me…
 which in turn made me feel like I could relax,
 open up and believe that I could find my voice." -- Debra Tufts

Life is your art.
An open, aware heart is your camera.
A oneness with your world is your film.
-- Ansel Adams

This is for people seeking their own creative magic! 

You don't have to be a pro photographer or super experienced. 
This is not about the gear! It's about what you DO with it.
  
It's about being able to "see" the image before pressing the shutter. 

It's about tapping into the voice inside; your muse. 
That "spark of divine fire" that will sing itself into everything you create;
your photography, art, business and life.  

It's about letting the place itself weave its magic on you; helping you create results that surprise even you. 

Yeah. We go there. 

Know my other fave Ansel Adams quote?
"The single most important component of a camera is the twelve inches behind it!"

Word.

In the end: you’ll have a set of photographs that tells YOUR story, using your unique, artistic voice.  

You'll walk away with a system to approach any new photographic situation with confidence,
knowing exactly how to hone in on the money shot

will make your inner muses give themselves a high-five.

Nourished by home-cooked meals, you'll learn how to support both body and soul, in a safe place to try out new ideas. You'll experience the sights, sounds and smells of local life, camera in-hand. As you sink into a quieter pace and rhythm, it becomes ever-easier for you to hear the whispers of your inner Muse…
and your “Artist’s Voice” effortlessly evolves and emerges through your images.
We’ll turn your creative vision loose amidst the multitude of inspirations you'll discover in the South of France!



 FINDING YOUR VOICE IS A GAME-CHANGER. SO IS THIS PLACE.

WHEN I FIRST BROUGHT MY VOICE HERE, SOMETHING AMAZING HAPPENED.

MY WORK CHANGED, MY BEING CHANGED, MY BELIEFS ABOUT WHAT IS POSSIBLE CHANGED.

I WANT TO OFFER YOU THE OPPORTUNITY FOR THE SAME.
