Photography Retreats with Karen Hargadon-Feeney
We are looking forward to our Photography Retreat in May this year!
An opportunity for anyone with a camera basically, this is not just open to professionals…but all who would love to improve their photography skills and just come along to experience this tranquil haven and simple Italian lifestyle.
Just waking up at Settimo Cielo, (Seventh Heaven!), believe me, is inspiration enough to jump out of bed, put on the nearest clothing, pull on your boots, grab your camera and step outside.
Get ready to inhale the intoxicating aroma of the woodland and marvel over the magical light.
The Photography Retreat will be led by international photographer Karen Hargadon-Feeney, a professional photographer who has featured in The British Journal of Photography and previously owned her own studio specialising in black and white photography.
Karen’s unique style is to take natural photographs in natural light in natural surroundings which she will be happy to share with you.
She has specialised in children’s portraiture, reportage style wedding photography, nudes and informal couples as well as family groups.
Since moving to Italy some 12 years ago, Karen has been naturally inspired to embrace colour photography, her main interest now focusing on mountains and landscape as well as nature.
We will wander around local medieval villages and hilltops and make a trip to one of the stunning Cinque Terre villages by train, just 40 minutes away!
The week will be one of relaxation and exploration, photographers are welcome to explore for themselves as well as be part of our intimate group of 4-5 guests.
You will eat the best food cooked from fresh locally sourced ingredients including from our own vegetable and herb gardens and we include Prosecco aperitivo each evening and wine with dinner.
So, if you have a camera and fancy an informal holiday in one of the most stunning areas in the world, would like to stay in a comfortable, quirky, individually designed house, enjoy real food and a glass or two in the evenings………… and fancy the company of a small group of like minded individuals…get in touch NOW!
Cost includes accommodation, all meals apart from on the day we go to the Cinque Terre, when you are invited to take lunch somewhere of your own choice.
