WHAT IS REFOCUS RETREAT 2019

Refocus Retreat - For women in the business of photography

You can still remember the first photo you took.

The shutter clicked, and something awoke deep inside. There was no thought of composition, lighting or focus – just a feeling like your soul had stretched out its wings, ready to fly. Though you couldn’t quite put your finger on it, you knew – could feel – that true photography is more than a way to preserve memories. Every photograph pulses with a life of its own; there is a kind of magic imbedded in each masterful image that connects hearts, generations and worlds.

Refocus Retreat invites you to recharge your creativity and rediscover the passion that first set you on your photographic journey.  Set in the picturesque countryside of the Macedon Ranges,  you will find rest for body and soul; a sisterhood of talented and professional photographers from all walks of life; and a wealth of expert advice and mentoring. Let the gorgeous natural surrounds spark a renewed sense of connection with the earth while you connect with the beautiful women you are sojourning with. Discover gems of wisdom that will help you take your photography business to the next level – we have all bases covered, from workshops and keynote speakers to nature walks and candid conversations.

After the farewell hugs and that last glass of champagne, you will leave with a renewed sense of clarity and focus that will breathe new life and inspiration into your work. And more than that, you will leave with new friendships and industry connections that will continue to invigorate your creative and professional endeavours well beyond the Refocus Retreat.

LOCATION

Located 65 minutes from Melbourne CBD and 35 minutes from Tullamarine airport, Lancemore Hill will capture your imagination like few regional conference or wedding venues can. From the minute you pull down our driveway, past the flock of sheep in our front paddock, you will feel you are somewhere very special – an exclusive place with enormous horizons and inspiring vistas.

VENUE
Lancemore Hill

Lancemore Hill was purpose built for private events with our beautiful homestead and surrounding guest rooms creating a distinct village-like atmosphere. Once inside, the landscape speaks for itself. Rolling hills stretch as far as the eye can see, over our estate vineyard and dams with resident mobs of kangaroos or flocks of rosellas stopping by to graze on our lawn. Our acclaimed service and rustic style will make you feel at home in an instant – and free to contemplate, collaborate or celebrate, no matter what the reason for your stay.
