The Photography Masterclass Retreat is a photography experience that combines an intense hands-on workshop with a relaxed atmosphere. It offers a great opportunity for a selected group of professionals and keen amateurs to live and breath photography and work closely with multi-awarded photographer Mimi Mollica to develop their vision, shape their work in-progress and bring their photography to the next level.
Away from the everyday pressures and indulging in the idyllic Sicilian countryside you’ll have the unique chance to critically advance your photographic skills, shoot new photographs off the beaten track of tourist trails, examine in depth your work, master the editing process and assess viable outlets for your story.
Together, in a group of 6 to 9 you will create sequences, draft narrative layouts and put together the basis for a successful pitch to editors, publishers, galleries and more. A Guest Expert will join the group on selected dates offering exclusive insights on the participants work and sharing knowledge of the industry.
The family farmhouse of San Giovanni Vecchio sits near the breathtaking Segesta archeological site and the village of Calatafimi-Segesta. Its beautiful and quite location is immersed in lush vegetation, olive trees, a biodiverse orchard that overlooks the wonderful panorama of the surrounding vineyard and cultivated hills.
Only a short drive from some of the richest and culturally engaging places in Sicily, the farmhouse stretches over two floors with airy and comfortable rooms. It features a swimming pool and has plenty of space to work and relax both indoors and outdoors.
