Last Sunday, I headed to Gabriola Island for a “Come Alive” retreat at The Haven. I had no idea what I was in for. I approached it as open-minded as I could. I arrived on the island and checked into my room. Although it was a shared room, there was no one else sharing it with me. This would prove to be very, very welcome. There were 17 participants, all with their own stories to share.

Good morning! Hope everyone is having a great week and looking forward to the weekend!
I’m off to Gabriola Island for a week this Sunday, taking part in a few workshops – not photography related. I am here to remind you of another photography workshop, though!
In December, I launched a really awesome workshop taking place just outside of Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories at the beautiful Blachford Lake Lodge. It’s a four-day/3-night event, taking place from September 2-5. I’m a little biased, but it will be worth every penny.
The workshop is $1950 CDN plus an Eventbrite fee. I may be biased, but this is a really great deal! All your meals and beverages (minus alcohol) are taken care of, your accommodations, and your travel to and from Yellowknife to Blachford. Each day will consist of a classroom portion before we head out at night to shoot the lights. Blachford has a bunch of amenities you will be able to use while you are there as well, such as canoes, hiking trails, fishing, a hot tub, and more!

I have included a link to Blachford Lake Lodge’s website as well so you can learn more about the lodge:
If you are interested or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I would love to see you there!
