The Bali Retreat is for photographers wanting to explore a photo-journalistic, storytelling path to allow them to embrace fresh ways of connecting to the world around them.  This six day immersive workshop will challenge you to think and photograph from an emotive level.  It will teach you how to connect with your subject, resulting in a series of images to showcase your chosen theme. During the retreat we will be staying in peaceful Om Ham Retreat, a short drive from Ubud, surrounded by lush green landscape, the second chapter of our retreat sees us staying at the luxurious Alamdhari Resort & Spa in Sidemen - where a river valley of terraced rice fields step down the countryside and traditional rural life can be witnessed in one of the most charming areas of Bali.
