Why did you choose to attend Clare Louise’s workshop ‘Creating a blue print to personal success’?
I try to select 2 or 3 different courses every year in order to have break and rethink about my creative process. For sure ‘Creating a blue print to personal success’ was much beyond my expectation. It was a few hours journey but enough to take my feet from the floor and invite me to fly…
What was the biggest value from the day?
The biggest value from the day was to allow myself to dive deep into the inner layers. Layers that we all have and most of the time we try to avoid. Old values that we tend not to question, not to challenge. Clare managed to create such a special environment and even the most introverted ones were able to express their feelings, boarding in this interesting adventure.
What did you explore during the workshop?
We explored everything. Everything was welcomed by Clare in order to make each one of us comfortable in our own moment. I was very curious watching how she approached each one of us. It seems she new already what she was looking for, what she going to explore with that person. I was surprised how she could deal with so many different personalities at the same time. Although we were all photographers, I believe this course would be suitable for any type of creative practitioner.
What’s changed because of what you experienced in the workshop?
I left the studio with a feeling that I can explore other areas in my creative work, for example painting my own work which has been a dream for many years. I have been transforming my camera as a brush for the past 8 years but now I decided that I will create some special editions, painting my own images.
How do you see these changes impacting your life, art and business?
Starting to paint my images will put my work into another perspective as a creative practitioner. Being able to work with other media always adds value to an artist. I also believe that it has given me more confidence to dare and maybe start using even another medias.
What would you tell others about Clare Louise and this workshop?
I would advise them to be prepared to touch their desires, dreams. I would also advise them to be prepared to deal with things that sometimes we try to avoid…our shadow. Facing it can be very rich and Clare’s program is developed to make you not only to face your own shadow but ‘dance with it’. She really wants and expects answers and changes during the workshop. It will be a challenging day with a sense of re-invigoration, empowerment and freedom that will appear at the end of the day…believe me. Enjoy it!!
