Poland 2015

A really super time, with a really super group.  This year we took on 2 luxury apartments just on the river in the centre of the most incredible city that is Gdansk.  The five days were filled with photography, fun, learning, discussions, and great food!

There were 7 of us in total – although with models, designers and make-up artists on the final day, we were a team of 14 at one stage! But we can cope with anything like that.

The workshop started with travels around the city – soaking up the history and atmosphere; particularly as the music festival meant that street performers were everywhere.  We had a day at Sopot, on the beach and around the town, and a very full day of fashion shoots in the studio and on the streets by the harbour.

The images speak for themselves, but a truly terrific time – and I am told that everyone learnt a huge amount.  I shall post the testimonials soon….
