retreat: LIFE IN MOtION

Filmmaking for families

Day retreat -£225

Thursday 10th October 2019

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

Immerse yourself in narrative storytelling

Use audio and music to enhance your short films

Find your style as a filmmaker

Edit your 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.
