Life in a Pictory
- Photography Workshop Retreat
- Photography Workshop Retreat
“It is within us that landscapes become landscapes.
That is why if I image them, I create them.
If I create them, they exist.
If they exist, I see them.
Life is what we make of it.
Travel is the traveler.
What we see is not what we see, but what we are…”
By following our experienced and award-winning photographer, we discover how to express
“what we are” through the lenses…
Not only will we learn the technical skills about photography from our talented photographer, but we would also like to inspire a life of self expressions, mutual understanding and conscious awareness of pure being within.
China, country side, each time at a different location ( around 2.5 hours to 3.5 hours of driving distance).
We will also go to different themed locations to get as much inspiration as possible around Shanghai - some of them are purely natural, some are old villages, somewhere we can meet artists, craftsmen or see working scenes… most of the time, we will choose a place that combines these all.

pictures. So it is important to find something to tell...”
