The Delight Retreat

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be part of the very first, ‘Delight Retreat’! A three day course for photographers hosted by the very talented Vicki Knights photography. The aim of the game was to spend three lovely days learning and soaking up the knowledge that Vicki was going to share with us. The course was to cover marketing, branding, and so so much more. We all stayed together at Florence house, in Seaford West Sussex. A beautiful setting that delivered beautiful homemade food and was just the perfect place to relax and soak up all the information Vicki was delivering to us! Not to mention a few glasses of bubbly ๐Ÿ™‚ Vicki Knight’s right hand woman was the beautiful Vicky Homes (with a Y) from Vicky Holmes Photographyย She was there to not only learn like us but to help look after us all and be chief behind the scenes photographer.

Included in our stay was the opportunity to watch Vicki work and see how she runs a typical family outdoor portrait session. Our surroundings were so wonderful and just provided so many photo opportunities including the nearby beach! We all got to shoot at the same time as Vicki and so all went home with our own images from the sessions.

On the last day we got to see how Vicki would work through a baby session in a home setting and again Florence house lent itself beautifully towards it.

I feel blessed to have been part of the first ‘Delight Retreat’ and have taken so much away from it. I know she plans to run more and I would urge any photographer who is trying to find his or her way in this competitive industry to consider Vicki’s next retreat. I can honestly say that it was a great investment, I have made lots of new friends and acquired a new lens because of it! Happy days! ๐Ÿ™‚
