This coming September presents a rare opportunity to partake in an exclusive Creative Immersion retreat with my esteemed guests – celebrated photographer Carla Coulson and revered Australian interior stylist – Shannon Fricke. With the rugged jewel of the Mediterranean as our canvas, this retreat is designed for participants to enhance their creative expression, fine their voice and trust their style. Bringing together their unique creative vision, these two inspiring mentors will present hands-on support and facilitation in an exclusive intimate gathering of only 6 guests. Sharing their experience and guidance to help develop your craft, their approach is designed to support and strengthen your natural aesthetic, help take more beautiful photos and elevate your styling. The Mediterranean is a feast for the senses. This is an opportunity to spend time honing in on your craft, be inspired by island life, live like a local and be nurtured by the rugged Lemnian elements.

About the retreat

Over 6 days, we will be based on the stunning Aegean island of Lemnos. A private vehicle will transport us to all our styling and photo shoot locations as well as activities. During this time you will harness your photography and styling skills, learn how to trust your better judgment in approaching your creativity and bring your personal narrative to your craft. This retreat is an opportunity to recharge, surrender to the elements and feed the senses, under the exclusive instruction of both Carla Coulson and Shannon Fricke

Who is this for?

Those looking to enhance their craft and refine their skills in order to deliver a more engaging means of communication through their creativity. It’s for those who wish to immerse themselves in the Mediterranean and indulge in village living, enjoying great food, wine and the chance to explore the island of Lemnos. You do not need to be an experienced photographer or stylist to join us. It is as much an opportunity for newcomers to learn or refine their skills as it is for those more advanced, a chance to connect with likeminded creatives, build your portfolio and glean inspiration from the island. Our subjects will be as diverse as our travels on the island, gatherings at the table and the food prepared for our meals.
