This retreat is for you if:
You want to create beautiful films for your family
You’re a portrait photographer wanting to make the first steps into videography for your clients
If you’ve tried your DSLR in video mode, but you’re disappointed with the results
If you want to create stories with love
In this one day retreat, we will help you use videography to tell the story of your everyday life in an extraordinary way. Through practical sessions and workshop conversations, we will take you through what we have learnt over the last few years. Using the gear you already have, we’ll show you how to film your story, and how you can make shorts with heart and soul.

Use your DSLR in video mode
Move from stills to film
Use natural light to help create emotion in your work

Use audio and music to enhance your short films

Maybe it’s for your own keepsakes, or you want to share with friends and followers on social media. Maybe you want to take the next step in your family photography business and offer clients these slices of life in motion. We will take you through the flow of making a family film, and show you how to create stories with love.
Suitable for photographers taking stills in manual, who have a DSLR that can shoot video. We’d recommend buying a camera strap if you haven’t already got one. We hold our retreats in a beautiful barn on the hillside above our hometown, Hebden Bridge.
