Italian Castle Wedding photography workshop – Graphistudio’s stunning Castello Ceconi
Monday June 10th – Friday June 14th 2019
£800 including refreshments and lunches.
Located at the foot of the Dolomites around ninety minutes away from Venice the stunning Castello Ceconi is the venue for our exciting Italian wedding photography workshop from Monday June 10th 2018. Our previous three workshops at the castle were action packed, intensive, lots and lots of fun and easily the best workshops I have ever hosted.
Owned by our album supplier Graphistudio, Ceconi Castle has been completely refurbished to the highest standards inside and out promising an amazing venue for our wedding photography training training workshop.
The weeks workshop with our bride and groom models will include a Pre-wedding shoot, Bridal shoot, bride and groom preparation all in and around the Castle, nearby waterfalls and church, our agenda also includes a night bridal shoot making the most of the castles floodlit exterior. Also during the week we’ll be talking about album design, upselling and demonstrating Photoshop and Lightroom live edits of images we have taken that day.
We will also attempt atleast one night of astro photography allowing us to create some stunning starry sky night images from this dark sky location.
During the week we will make a visit to the nearby Graphistudio album factory for an informative tour and look at the album production process, the hand made album production process has to be seen to be believed and even if you’re not yet a Graphistudio customer, you can’t fail to be impressed by the meticulous attention to detail that goes into every hand made wedding album.
The workshop includes all lunches and welcome dinner on Monday evening all food prepared by a local restauranteur making use of traditional and local Italian foods, this will include some alcoholic drinks. Not included are flights (Low cost flights to Venice around £70 return), other evening meals and hotel accommodation (The local hotel is appx £40 per night).
