WILD PHOTOGRAPHY; ITALY

                                        

 

        A wild weekend in the Magical Sibillini Mountain Park: May 31 to June 4, 2018

 

 

                                    With Michael Eldridge and Naga Dipa    

 

 

 

 

Our Wild Photography Weekend, based at La Cittadella Centre is designed to excite you, awaken you, and to remind you that a camera is just a machine. That what it really is about is your mind; how you perceive yourself and the world of outside of you; an inward and outward adventure, based at La Cittadella Centre in the Sibillini National Park

 

The National Park is Italy's newest and apart from all the magical connections with the Ancient Goddess religions, it is also the home of wolves, bear, porcupine, deer, and a thriving host of other unique creatures such as black squirrels and primordial shrimps in Pilates Lake beneath Monte vettore. Suffice to say it's full of the most fascinating and unique fauna and flora.

 

And scenically it is almost overwhelming beautiful, and it is here we will spend long days, returning in the late evening to go through our images and and then relax over a splendid Italian dinner at the wonderful Cittadella

 

As the saying goes 'Everybody is a photographer nowadays'  Sure, we can go along with that to a certain extent, but what is it that makes an excellent photographer, or poet, or painter come to that? In the final analysis, it is passion and absorption and hard work. And up in the mountains here we lock you in to such a magical realm. And this experience will have a profound effect on your creative life from thenceforth. The journey doesn't end there.

 

Because, critically, as you might already know, we keep in constant touch with our participants via sharing platforms. And as mentors, we share with you the ups and downs of your passion for the extraordinary medium of photography.

 

We make no distinction between experienced photographers or beginners. We are here to share and learn from each other. All and any types of photographic image making devices are OK with us. Bring your laptops

My Weekend with Michael I drove to Brighton with two thoughts in my head. One, that the 5-day creative retreat in Assisi with Michael and Michelle had revealed to me talents that I hadn’t realised I possessed and, two, it couldn’t happen twice. Or could it? Would the weekend deliver? Would I find a creative photographer within? Could I create ‘beyond myself’? Well, the answer is yes to all of those questions and the reason for that is trust. Trust in Michael, trust in the process but, most important of all trust in oneself. I loved the weekend, Brighton, all of the others on the course, the new way of seeing and responding, Thank you Michael for opening my eyes on a wonderful world.'
