I’m gushing when I think of the magical days in Burgundy last summer… truly a week of chasing beauty. It transformed the way I look through my camera lens. Flo curated a fabulous team of instructors who shared their knowledge and skills so graciously and were such inspirations. Classes were divided in groups of three students so you had the undivided attention of the instructor. Questions answered right away. I met like minded ladies from all corners of the globe who have become life long friends and are always encouraging and interested my next step of creativity. Flo really raised the bar and this was truly a masterclass in how to run a workshop. I left wanting this week to be on permanent replay button.
As a blessed attendee of Burgundy last year, your attention to detail is second to none, absolutely nothing is forgotten! One of the biggest take homes was the small rotating groups that were created to provide everyone with access to a teacher, to learn at one’s own pace, this was key to your success.
Flo’s workshop in France is without doubt the best workshop I’ve ever attended. Spectacular surroundings, lovely people, super talented teachers, heart warm atmosphere and a wonderful hostess with an extraordinary talent for planning. Thank you Flo for arranging this memorable experience.
All the days spent with you and your amazing teachers in the manor house where you grew up was one of the best summers I can remember ... and the creative women you brought together, now lifelong friends it doesn’t get any better than this! I loved every minute and thank you for all your generosity.
It was a dream week, dream team, dream location, dream teachers, all. Top top top. We lived in a creative bubble for five days. Workshop was so well organized with all beautifully thought little details.
I thought I was nuts going to a retreat while I was a total beginner at photography, had no blog, no social media followers and no particular plan for after the retreat. But now, one year later, I can tell you that it was the best decision and I am so glad I didn’t put it off for later. If you were to do only one photography retreat in your life, this is the one.
Flore creates the most wonderful workshops. I had the pleasure of already attending two of them, one in Burgundy, in her parents home, and another held on the beautiful Greek Island of Paros. You can feel how much heart and soul she puts into creating these. All of the teachers are usually specialised in different fields, which is fantastic as you get to try something new like e.g. film making or directing a model. However, they all have in common that they are all the kindest people who are more than happy to share their knowledge with you. I love that the individual classes are each taught in small groups of four students, always leaving enough time for questions and never giving you the feeling of standing in somebodies way while shooting. Flore also takes the time for one on one sessions if you like. There is such a great sense of community at the retreat and besides making friends for life, many new creative projects find their origin here as well. For me personally, these workshops definitely were a great boost in confidence as well. I am sure I will be back for more.
I thought before going to the workshop in Paros that I would learn a lot and meet amazing teachers there, but it was so much more than that! The whole experience was so life fulfilling, it’s hard to describe in words. The people and the place were amazing. When women meet like this, wonderful things happened and it certainly did there! Flo has a talent to gather such a great bunch of teachers and she seems to have a magic wand to make everything beautiful and incredible. I have gone back home with knowledge, millions of projects in my head, motivation and a fantastic network of people. Basically, loved it!
