Please join us on this amazing photography workshop and spiritual retreat with award-winning photographer Catherine Just. We’ll be relaxing for 4 days in a beautiful oceanfront home set along the stunning Oregon beach. As we observe and listen to the ocean – we’ll have the opportunity to delve deep into the heart of our own creative process.
Journey with us on this rich and vibrant retreat. Surrounded by nature you’ll have unlimited potential for quiet image making and communion between yourself and the earth, sky, mountains, trees and ocean. This merging between self and nature is experienced in the moment your being knows it’s time to click or take the picture. This knowing is what we wish to experience time and time again – the mysterious space in time when we merge with spirit though the camera lens. Connecting deeply with the oneness of life we have the desire to express our feelings on film.
Each morning we’ll gather together to share our thoughts and feelings about our creative process and where we would like our photography to take us. You’ll be given photo “assignments” which will encourage you to explore the hopes, dreams, and wishes that spring from your hearts deepest desires. Heading along the coast, we’ll visit a variety of terrains and vistas presenting us with unlimited photo opportunities. There will be plenty of time to expand your consciousness, explore the assignments, work on personal projects, walk along the beach, journal, or simply take a quiet break. In the evenings we’ll gather again for dinner and discuss what has been revealed to us that day.
The process of creating images will be our focus rather than the technical side of photography. Participants must have a basic understanding of how their cameras work. Open to all levels of photography experience, however it is best suited for those who want to explore their personal process and heighten their creativity rather than for those who need technical help.
