Gypsy*Friday - Photography Getaways

Lately all I have on my mind is photography. Running to photo shoots, researching lenses, getting ready for photo school, getting to know Photoshop, developing my photography blog, I guess we could say that I'm obsessed! :) What I unfortunately don't have enough time to do is the most important thing of all... actually taking pictures. During my travels I often wish I could stop time, set my camera and shoot for a few minutes, but oh well, there is always a boyfriend, a girlfriend or a mother waiting impatiently for me  not tolerating my slow motion one bit! :) Sounds familiar? I was just considering the idea of going on  a photo vacation by myself, when I found out that Nicolette, a dear blog friend of mine has just launched her company  Photography Getaways which offers photography travel workshops in scenic vacation destinations. Where do I sign up?! :)


Wouldn't it be amazing to spend a long weekend shooting the green beauty of the Irish countryside, the beautiful chateauxs of France or the majestic Alps in Austria accompanied by an experienced (and amazing :) photography instructor helping you with the ins and outs of your settings and composition? I hope I'll be able to make it to at least one of her trips in 2011. It's weekends like these when you can really take your photography to the next level and create once in a lifetime memories while enjoying the company of people sharing your passion! I'm thrilled to welcome Nicolette and Photography Getaways as our newest sponsor! She was kind enough to offer a $50 discount to all Gypsy*Diaries readers if you sign up before the end of the year to any of her trips (plus she has an early bird promotion until the end of September saving you another $50 bucks)! Check out her pretty new website and tell me, if you could spend a weekend anywhere in the world, just taking pictures, where would you go?

P.S: She also has a very cute personal blog here! ;)

What wonderful photos!! That sounds like an amazing experience..if I lived in Europe I would definitely go on one of those trips!

If I could go on a photography trip anywhere I would want to go to Sicily. Not only is it beautiful, but the people are so friendly and interesting!

@Cafe Fashionista I soooooo agree with you!!! :)

Kinsey Michaels said...

congrats on your new sponsor Gabby! snazzy idea too, i think i would enjoy taking pictures in ANY of these places highlighted!! it's hard to pinpoint. i suppose i would say Europe, which is super general, but i've never been outside of North America before!

Catherine said...

sounds like a great idea to combine travel and photography...

Kate said...

Lovely post :) Thats an amazing idea! I honestly couldn't decide where to take pictures if I had the chance to go anywhere in the world ... possibly Tokyo, or anywhere in Japan, really :)

Oh my gosh this is a wonderful idea!! If I could afford this right now, I would so be signing up! One day, though. Honestly, even though I lived in Paris for 4 months, that is where I would go. It is the city that forever will hold my heart. I can't wait to go back one day, and with my new camera in tow!
Bisous!
