Food Photography Retreat 2024

Want to escape the daily grind, charge your creative batteries, make new friends, network with experts in the industry and learn new things?

Join us for an ultimate weekend away in the Byron hinterland between 15th and 18th February 2024 and you can expect all this and more.

From inspirational life journeys to demos on lighting set ups, live styling session, working with a brief and discovering how to improve your workflow and editing skills. There is something for everyone. And if you want to skip a session to chill by the pool, that is fine too. We don’t force you to attend every session on the program.

This is not a mass event or another boring conference. Super casual, just a group of likeminded people having fun, learning a thing or two whilst, of course, enjoying great food and wine.
