“I recently attended the Lauren Fair Cairnwood Estate Workshop, and am completely blown away at my experience! I have attended multiple workshops in the past and can say that this one has been the best hands down. Lauren and Tim are so caring and kind and the information they give is invaluable. They touched on every subject from email replies, websites, attracting the right clients, posing, pricing, film, and so much more! I cannot wait to implement everything I've learned. The classroom portion in itself was so worth it to me, but to top it all off we had the most insanely beautiful styled shoot afterward which is going to be such a beautiful addition to my portfolio. Lauren took us through each portion of the shoot and gave us information on her camera settings and how she directs her couples and it was awesome to see her in action! At the end of the day we were treated to a delicious candle-lit catered dinner where we got to converse and connect with her, Tim, and all of the other attendees. I am so happy and grateful that I attended her workshop and wish I could go to them all! If you are on the fence about attending a Lauren Fair workshop, my advice to you is to just do it! You won't be disappointed!"

“Life CHANGER! Attending a Lauren Fair Workshop was by far the BEST decision I made for not only my photography business, but also for myself. You can watch as many YouTube videos on photography as you want... but what it comes down to is actual real-life, hands-on experience in the photography world by someone that inspires you. That is exactly why I decided to attend a Lauren Fair Workshop. I walked away feeling like I could conquer all the DREAMS I had set for myself and I also walked away feeling so much more confident in myself. Lauren truly puts her heart and soul into her workshops leaving her attendees with an experience that you just can’t experience from anyone else in the industry. Lauren is one of the most humble, inspiring, kindest people I have ever met and she is someone you want to surround yourself with because she gives so much joy and love to everyone around her. Words can’t describe how fast my business transformed after attending the European Inspired Autumn Workshop. If you’re ready to take your business to the next level that you’ve always dreamed of, look no further, just attend one of Lauren’s workshops and I promise you will never be happier.”

Thank you for the incredible workshop. You were both amazing! You provided so much useful information and insight. I am in the midst of redoing my website and so many of your topics were beyond useful and helped me solidify some areas where I was unsure.  
The styled shoot was absolutely stunning and what photography dreams are made of!!! Your direction to the attendees was fantastic and really helped it not feel overwhelming by the number of shooters. Thank you again for your warmth, knowledge and impeccable sense of taste."

WORKSHOP DETAILS

Colorful towns cling to cliff faces, restaurant terraces offer breathtaking views, and blue waters sparkle into the distance.
Vespas weave through cars on narrow mountain roads and the heady tang of lemons fills the warm air. This is the iconic Amalfi Coast: the most beautiful part of Italy. 

Positano is full of colorful buildings, blindingly blue Mediterranean waters, an understated, textured elegance to its iconic buildings and is truly one of the most photogenic corners of the world. Photographers' eyes will delight in the endless textures, flowers, and aesthetic of an area of the country that is a photographers' paradise. You'll fly into Naples (for travel purposes)  and and join us at our amazing villa, Vila Angelina, in the heart of iconic Positano. 

The prettiest place in the world? We think so. And speaking of our villa....









We'll be staying together at this incredible (pink!) luxury villa overlooking the iconic Positano views & Mediterranean Sea. See a few photos of our villa below, and click HERE to view the villa website and location!  With luxurious rooms and a stunning environment, we'll enjoy meals, class time and our shoots onsite here in Positano! Not to mention, the freshness of farm to table Italian food will be incredible for our meals together as our private chef cooks us authentic Italian food to perfection.
