The Retreat is not a shooting workshop, but being photographers sharing images is second nature.

here are the winning images of the 2 photo contesTs of the 2018 retreat.

During the week of The Photography Master Retreat from July 7 to 14, 2018, the participants had very little time to photograph. This Retreat emphasizes intensive critique and reflection, with the goal of advancing the participants’ practice to levels they may not have contemplated.

The Jury with Peter Stitt receiving his Prize

I am in no way saying that my project wasn’t going in the right direction, but it was more like I was stuck in a holding pattern.. and couldnt find an endpoint.
I went from knowing there was something in a large collection of images with a broad common thread, to having a streamlined, focused project.
I now have a working edit to this project, a set of goals to reach over the next year or so, and a confidence in my work that I don’t think I’ve ever solidly had before. Confidence in this project and what it is, is no longer an issue.
