“Moda e Arte changed my life.  I know that sounds dramatic, but it’s true.

When I signed up for the Fall 2014 workshop in Italy, I was worried that maybe I had made a mistake, maybe I was spending too much money, or that I would not get anything out of it. After the amazing 3 day workshop, I realized that no amount of money could have paid for the experiences I had, the instruction I received and the lifelong friends that I made there.

KT, Sandra, Joy and everyone else involved were truly amazing teachers and were ever helpful in listening to what each attendee wanted to get out the workshop.  With one-on-one instruction from these world-renowned photographers and amazing styled shoots for your portfolio, you will leave the workshop a better photographer with experiences that you will never forget.

Attending the Moda e Arte Workshop is the best personal and business decision I have made.  Thanks to everyone involved for making it so special!”

“I knew that the Moda e Arte workshop was something that I wanted to take part in as soon as I found out the unbelievable staff that would be participating in it. The Amalfi Coast is one of my favorite places on earth, so it did not take long to convince me once I found out it was in Ravello, Italy.

I love photography and it has been a hobby of mine for many years but I knew very little about wedding photography. I went with my gut, took a chance and signed up even though I knew most of the photographers were going to be extremely talented and in the professional industry. I am so glad that I followed my heart because the experience holds incredible memories and friendships that will last a lifetime! I learned so much about myself as a person and as a photographer.

Sandra taught me how to look at my images in a new light. She points out what makes your pictures unique and observes your style of photography to give beneficial feedback. Sandra also helped me find beauty in the images that I thought were flawed. This not only made my portfolio stronger but also gave me the confidence to continue in the industry.

I knew nothing about film when I got to the workshop but with the encouragement and guidance of KT Merry I found a new passion! She taught me the importance of evoking emotion with my pictures and how to capture those special moments on camera, more specifically film. KT is a force to be reckoned with. Her tenacity, spirit and stunning images will inspire you to push yourself and take chances as a photographer.

Jannie is not only a brilliant designer but also an amazing confidant. She helps you explore your passions just by listening to you. She is patient,kind and witty- which makes you want to be her best friend. Her beautiful head pieces brought magic to all of the clothing and gowns.

Joy has an eye for pretty little things. Her design and creative styling takes the workshop to completely new level! Every shoot you will go to, your heart will skip a beat from all the beauty. She is light hearted but a hard worker which makes her a complete pleasure to work with. She is willing to take the time to help you learn how to design and style on your own too!

Everyone is willing to take the time out of the busy commotion and help you strive to reach your goals!”
