Louise Sedgman Equine Photography

Winter Portrait Retreat 2024

Join Louise and a special group of ladies on the creative and intimate, private portrait masterclass.

Ladies, this is for you. Imagine immersing yourself in the glorious forest surrrounds of Narbethong and the Black Spur, staying in beautiful retreat style accommodation with the most delicious food and hospitality!

Workshops designed to cater to exactly what you would like to learn about. 

Be part of behind-the-scenes while creating incredible photographs.  Do you want to know how ideas come together? What goes into the planning process and how to pull off an epic photo shoot creation as well as capture your own amazing photos from the experience?  I’m giving you the opportunity over three fabulous days, to see what goes on behind the scenes into making amazing imagery!  The why, the how and everything in between, over four unique, creative and inspiring studio and outdoor workshops customized for you, plus a deep-dive session into the editing process.

You will be a part of the whole shoot process and will recieve detailed insight into posing, lighting, location scouting and working with people and animals as well as editing to bring out the final magic in your photographs. The individual workshops will include outdoor styled portrait sessions in natural and introduced light. A fine art shoot using backgrounds to explore studio style photography, as well as a personal branding session for each of us.

This masterclass is limited to only six ladies, by invitation only. Guaranteed to be a personal, educational and meaningful experience. There will be the opportunity for you to request what you would like to learn about and I will be available for the entire workshop to assist you. We will share meals together and stay in the comfort of the beautiful Saladin Lodge together.     

We will be staying in the stunningly beautiful town of Narbethong in the Yarra Ranges, Victoria at the gorgeous Saladin Lodge. With time spent totally immersed in the Australian bush, in all its wintery splendour, to then retreat back into the comfort by the wood heaters, on the cosy couchs with maybe even a glass of wine.

Skill Level required…

This masterclass will take your portrait photography to the next level and is perfect, whether you shoot on auto or manual, but having an understanding of the camera basics such as the exposure triangle are recommended. You should also have an understanding of the basics of Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom to some degree (this is only relevant if you wish to actively participate in the editing component of the Masterclass. Alternatively, you can just watch and learn)
