Puerto Rico Photography Retreat
Time & Location
About the Event
Why should I register for this retreat by Flor Blake?
After a decade working as a photographer, Flor wanted to create a retreat to help photographers think outside the box to make remarkable images. This retreat is designed to encompass everything Flor wanted to have in a retreat, bonding among like-minded individuals, a stress-free creative environment, and dedicated time to photograph and get feedback. She wants to give you the opportunity to not only add beautiful images to your portfolio but to do it in an intimate environment where you can learn from her and from the other participants... plus the beach, she loves the beach! Flor lived in Puerto Rico for 11 years and she still visits the island regularly as her family and friends still live there. So, great news, you will experience Puerto Rico with a local!
