Wedding Photography Workshop in Corsica, France (for either English or German speakers):

This workshop is tailored to photographers who are eager to build their portfolio in order to market towards destination weddings.

We are partnering up with a fellow photographer, Oleg Trushkov, to make this dream a reality in Corsica. The main focus will be on two photo sessions with one or two different couples (depending on the number of attendees). Moreover, we will have a couple of presentations where you get to ask your questions and get feedback on your work… and of course there will be yummy food and French wine.

  • What? A 3-day photography workshop for wedding photographers in Corsica, France.
  • When? from the 1st of October until the 3rd of October 2018. We recommend arriving on the 30th of September and leaving on the 4th of October.

During the photo shoot sessions, we will divide the group into two: six people in each group. If there are more than six attendees we will organize a 2nd couple.
The photo sessions will take place regardless of the weather. Therefore, make sure that you bring the right attire (which includes rainproof and windproof jackets and proper shoes).
