Ciao tutti, as you know, it’s been a whirlwind here in Italy. I have held 3 workshops back to back from June – July with a mini break in between. The first workshop (you can read all about it here) was a big success. We all had a great time, and the truth is, I learned a lot.
Our second workshop named “Strictly Styling” was just that. We did have a photographer, but mostly it was all about styling with lectures and demos and lots of hands on. This was a new concept and not so photography based. No cameras were needed, although we did have folks bring along their cameras, and photograph their own set up. But mainly we worked on composition for the camera and prop styling. Of course, shopping for props and inspiration all over the region was a big hit. Let’s face it who does not like to shop? It was such a success that some of my attendees are coming back for more. I have decided to do 2 One on One styling Sessions here next summer. A student will stay with me at the main house, we will style discuss the business of styling and marketing strategies, and of course shop until we drop at all my secret haunts all over the region for exceptional unique props. Stay tuned for the dates on this one.
I loved spending time with our Strictly Styling attendees. They were enthusiastic, fun, funny and above all, a pleasure to hang out with. We shopped, ate, and drank wine and cocktails while taking in the sunset on the terrace. It was a truly unforgettable gathering of creative minds. God I love my job.
