October 20th-23rd 2017

Limited to five people only

I will be partnering with American photographer, Henry Lohmeyer to run this gathering. During these 3 days we will walk the streets of Paris, from the obvious ones to some secret hideaways, taking photos, and gathering at the end of each day to talk about the experience and the photos that were shot. We will talk about the word CHOICES, what it means for each of us, how we want to express it through photography. Henry and I will be there to guide you through technical tips and suggestions of approaches. This gathering is mostly to help you build confidence with your photography, helping you to find a voice through your images, whilst experiencing the beauty and charm of Paris. 


We are limiting this gathering to only five people, wanting the experience to be an intimate and safe gathering.  The place is close to the Champs Élysées, Ladurée Champs Élysées and Opera. You will appreciate the accommodation for the height of the ceilings, comfort and location. It is perfect for our group. An apartment for 6 people with 3 bedrooms in a Haussmannian building, a superb bathroom with bath and shower and a fully equipped kitchen.

We will be tucked away near the center of Paris, a home away from home. We will be sharing a flat, each person with own bed. It will be our place of gathering to share our feelings of the day, maybe our trepidations for the next. It will be a relaxing place where we will share meals and thoughts.

Dean Dorat

Dean was trained as a still life photographer, but her heart is in taking photos of moments, involving people—old and young souls. Dean loves shooting portraits, events, or documenting stories. What touches her in photography is to be able to see and capture an instant, a moment that touches her deeply, that resonates with her own story, whether it is conscious or subconscious. From working with Ben Harper and Carleen Anderson, to being assigned to shoot backstage at various Paul Smith’s fashion shows in both Paris and London, through professional assignments and personal projects, Dean comes across incredible stories, unforgettable people, always feeling so humbled at the privilege of capturing the essence of a moment.

Henry Lohmeyer

Henry uses his lens to capture the edges of vulnerability, where heart meets soul and the courage to be seen is the only thing left waiting. A seasoned photographer, Henry’s learned his craft by wandering the streets of St. Louis, Los Angeles, NYC and most recently Paris, France for three months, where the stories of men arriving from Afghanistan and elsewhere illuminates for all of us just how fragile it is, this notion we hold of “home.”
