I spotted that the Bohemia Collective were planning a gathering a few months ago, and thought it sounded perfect.. 'A never seen before experience for female film photographers who simply long for MORE. More down to earth. More sharing. More creativity. More grounding. More keeping it real. More love. More gut feeling. More dreaming...'
It was such a refreshing and inspiring trip, just what I'd been looking for to brush up on my film photography and get me into gear. Our mentors, Isabelle Hesselberg (of 2 Brides Photography) and Siegrid Cain, shared so openly about themselves and their work, giving us so much to come home with.
Along with Isabelle and Siegrid I also met seven other amazing ladies from across the world, all on similar journeys with their photography, and we spent four days learning, sharing, eating, drinking and laughing! Our hosts, Lynn and Olivier at Aux Jardins des Thevenets, were completely perfect and their home is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places I've ever been.
I would recommend both the Bohemia Gatherings and Aux Jardins des Thevenets to anyone. It was a truly brilliant experience! Here's some of the images I captured whilst I was there, all shot on film...
Thanks too to UK Film Lab for a brilliant job as always :)
