Only a few spots left! 

 

Join Elena Blair and Bre Thurston in beautiful Austin, TX  where we will re-ignite your love of photography. You will enjoy three nights and two blissful days of relaxation, education, and friendship. Put down your pen and paper and learn hands-on and face to face with Elena and Bre, two photographers who believe that loving what you do is paramount to finding your success. Learn how to turn that love into truly connected, emotive images.

Imagine a time where you are away from your day to day stresses. Imagine waking up and doing yoga with a few new friends, followed by a fresh breakfast and warm coffee. Next, get cleaned up and join Elena and Bre and your fellow attendees for a day filled with conversation, shooting, laughing, and learning. At the end of the day you will enjoy a wonderful chef-prepared dinner, pour yourself a glass of wine, and sit down with laptops to discuss your images and work on editing. While we may not all know one another (yet), this is a time for rejuvenation, inspiration, and education.

Elena & Bre


Elena and Bre met in Seattle, WA in 2012 and became fast friends. They bonded over their mutual passion for photography, joyful storytelling, their children, and life in general. Elena is a successful family and portrait photographer in Seattle, WA while Bre now lives in Northern California and travels all over the country to photograph weddings and families.

Together, they came up with the idea to share what they love with an intimate group of other photographers. A seedling of an idea quickly turned into something tangible and Blair + Thurston was born. Both Elena and Bre share the philosophy that what you photograph should be what moves you, whether you are shooting for yourself or for clients. Photos do not need perfection, but they need a voice and the love of a photographer behind the camera.

We cannot wait to spend an amazing weekend with you!
