Workshop & Retreat . December 30, 2015 . Winter Escape

At the last minute I have been inspired to host a small Workshop and Retreat here in the Cascades mountains of Cle Elum.  Spend the day photographing on location with a model or two, we then can move indoors to our home and work on some post production and techniques for fine art portrait photography.    Cle Elum is an hour and 15 minutes from the Bellevue and Seattle area.  We need at least 5 attendees to hold this day together. I am inspired by being with other creatives and sharing my knowledge of creating the fine art print. I hope you will consider joining us for a whole day of work and creativity.  It is so beautiful up here!  Call 206 818 3827  or email  alavekios@  to register and discuss details.   Thank you!  I hope it works out.  It is only a week away!
