I could simply save one of these pics as my latest laptop wallpaper, but I want to live within them even more, so I’m thinking of ordering one of each to hang all over my home (I’m not joking). Captured at Greg Finck’s first film photography retreat, aptly name The Light Workshop, this shoot came together with a powerhouse team of talent, including Branco Prata, Lavender and Rose, Made In You, Nice Plume Calligraphie, topped off with beautiful blooms by Laetitia C. Fleurs D’Atelier. Good luck picking a favorite; it’s a struggle I’m all to happy to indulge.
From Greg Finck… Provence is very rich in terms of imagery and what people have in mind when they think about this amazing French region. Lavender fields, olive groves, pale green tones… you name it. Les Domaines de Patras is a hidden gem in the heart of Provence, and that’s the venue I had picked to host the first edition of my film photography retreat: the Light Workshop. Kéty and Eric, the owners of this historical Provence venue, are the sweetest persons you can meet, and dedicate all of their heart to the brides and grooms they host every weekend to celebrate their weddings.
With 17 attendees coming from 10 countries, and 15 staff members, we spent four days enjoying the Provence easy lifestyle and food, surrounded by Provencal beauty. This is an overview of the Provence inspiration we tried to immerse our attendees in. This was all designed by some of the best European designers, including Lavender&Rose Weddings, Branco Prata and Nessa Buonomo for Made in You. Local floral designer Laetitia C. made magic as she’s used to doing. Our models, dressed by Rime Arodaky and Jenny Packham by Martine Toledano, were wonderfully appraised by the hair styling of Ciara Coiffure and make up of Charles Gillman. Beautiful calligraphy by Nice Plume Calligraphy was with us from the welcome dinner to all of the styled shoots.
Finally, all of this shoots, and the overall ambiance of the workshop, were inspired by the ethereal and light atmosphere of Provence, and we all went through a long creative path to get to that result, to make of this a one and only experience for our attendees. This is Light Workshop.
