Last year, a group of Shore Shooters photographers got together in Milton, Florida for a weekend of relaxation and learning. We all had a great time getting to know the other members of our team and learning from each other.
This year, we’ve decided to step it up and take it to the mountains! Since our last retreat, my business partner, April Loyle, has gained a lot of experience at hosting fun workshops and teaching creatives, so she has some great ideas up her sleeves for this one!
This time, we’re not limiting it to Shore Shooters photographers. We’re opening this one up to all photographers! Also, we are “going adult church camp on this joker”, as April described it. For the location, we chose my all-time favorite campground (and I’ve been to quite a few of them, so it has to be EXTREMELY great to be listed as my favorite!). Little Arrow Outdoor Resort is located right outside of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Townsend, Tennessee.
The retreat will take place Friday September 20 through Sunday September 22, 2019. Our schedule for the weekend is going to be great! April is planning styled shoots with models, potluck dinner around the fire, waterfall hikes, and just good old fashioned chill time. If you feel overwhelmed with the “business” side of photography, I’ll be happy to sit down with you during our down times to answer any questions you have about running or starting a photography business and help you get your business organized and efficient. Plus, the campground has a little coffee lounge, gift shop, teepee, and even a nice pool just to name a few things that make it so awesome!
We want to keep this event small and fun, so there are only a limited number of spots available. The cost is $500, which will be broken up into two payments of $250 (first payment now, balance due by August 31).
To apply to be a part of this fun weekend, go to this page and fill out the application. If approved, we’ll send you an invoice for the first payment.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact April through Instagram. We hope to see you September 20th through the 22nd in the Great Smoky Mountains!
