Photography & Mindset Retreat – Reset & Grow

with photographers Lesley Whyte and Monica Ferguson

24-27th September 2021

Prices from $2200 per person twin share

Together with Lesley & Monica from Women in Photography we’ve developed an annual 4-day women’s photography retreat based at River Valley.  River Valley has been chosen as it is a place to restore, rejuvenate, recreate and regenerate – it where we can immerse ourselves in nature, build a real connection and embrace ourselves as women.    Over this weekend, Monica will help you to set an amazing vision and smash through fears and limits, help you reach your next level and beyond

Did you know that photography is a medium to express yourself, and also helps you to bring focus to positive life experiences, it can enhance your self-work and even reduces the stress hormone cortisol?  What that means is being a #photographybuddy is good for you.

Whether you are a beginner and only just started using your camera, you’re still on auto or you’re more advanced, this therapeutic long weekend is for you; Lesley and Monica will help you grow your photographic knowledge.
