Meet the Photographer: Cam Camarena
Cam was born and raised in LA but lived most of his life in NYC, where he worked 20 years as a professional photographer and collaborated with some of the biggest names in the photography world. He worked for many international magazines, and worldwide advertising campaigns but his passion is portraits. Indeed he photographed many worldwide celebrities. His shoots are always fun and full of good vibes.
What will be the program like?
Every day we will start with an energizing yoga class in the beautiful Yoga Ground followed by a delicious and healthy breakfast.
The photography workshop will be very much practical and hands-on. You must bring your own camera (a real one, not the phone).
Topics we will cover:
Understanding your camera and shooting modes
Metering Modes and balanced exposure
Composition and storytelling
Aperture, ISO and Shutterspeed
Lens and Focal Length
Portrait vs Landscape
Outdoor natural light
Food & wine are part of our culture and play an important role in this retreat. You will enjoy three daily meals always prepared with local, fresh and seasonal ingredients. At every dinner, we will present a different natural wine sourced by small local producers.
The program will be adapted to the skills and flow of the group with both group and individual sessions. You will be given plenty of time to explore your creativity on your own. Previous experience in photography is not necessary and the workshop is accessible to all levels.
