The Envision Retreat

TAKE YOUR BUSINESS, PERSONAL
GOALS AND CLIENT EXPERIENCE TO
THE NEXT LEVEL

2022 edition – April 2022 (exact date TBD), France

Are you tired of looking for a photography workshop that will help you grow while being part of an extraordinary community of like-minded photographers?

Are you tired of attending keynote conferences with no way to interact with the speaker whatsoever?

The envision retreat is not just
another photography workshop

It is a unique and intimate retreat for wedding photographers ready to take their business, personal goals and client experience to the next level.

A welcoming atmosphere is waiting for your during this 4-days immersive experience, with 7 conferences, 1 inspiration shooting and many surprises along the way. Taste delicious French food at every meal and learn from the best of the industry, and enjoy most needed “off times” to speak with ANYONE to heart’s content (and we actually mean anyone: all the speakers will stay on-site during the whole retreat).

This is the Envision Retreat.

FAQ

The Envision Retreat is aimed at wedding photographers who want to go to the next level, wherever this level is. You need to have a full understanding of your gear, but you don’t have to be in business for 10 years to attend. All wedding photographers are welcome!

Everything is included in your price except transportation to and from the chateau. Everything else, like meals (traditionally French), accommodation, conferences and ateliers are all included in the price of your ticket.

The Domaine d’Essendiéras is located in Dordogne, South-West France. I would recommend to take a plane to the Bordeaux airport, and rent a car from there in order to have the full mobility needed to reach the chateau and move around with your car.

The Envision Retreat is an English-speaking workshop with an English-speaking lineup.

The workshop is an hands-on conference with a maximum of 70 attendees.

The chateau has many rooms on different floors, and one is wheelchair-accessible. You will find a heated pool on-site, a beautiful park, a bar, a sauna and a free parking. There is also a golf course on site, as well as a fishing lake.

Yes, definitely. If you have a specific diet or are allergic or intolerant to certain foods, our chef will do his best to cater for your special needs.

Pack just like a normal vacation, and don’t forget your camera! Nothing else is needed!
