Grow your talent as a Storytelling photographer!

There is no such thing as the perfect lens, camera or settings.

Above all, photography is a way of expressing your voice, your emotion and your story.

7-day camper & photography retreat

Everybody loves a well-told story because it evokes emotions. They can make us excited, laugh, cry or feel empathy for someone else. But most importantly: stories about other people help us to understand our own lives better. If you can tell a compelling story with a single image, it will stick with anybody. This is why visual storytelling plays such an important role in photography.

Take your storytelling photography to the next level during the 7-day camper retreat in the Algarve, Portugal. A unique experience where you will explore, learn and grow with like-minded people.

Denise Motz
Photographer & Mentor


Three years ago I discovered traveling was bringing me so much freedom and knowledge in life. That’s why I started to combine it with my photography work. Why not do my favourite thing on earth, while traveling the world? My passion for capturing people’s unique stories is so big that you won’t see me without my camera, whether if it’s a wedding, street photography or my own life. Not only does that train me as a photographer, I also become a richer personality with each click. I would love to share my expertise and opinion about visual storytelling with you!

You can never be quite sure where I am hanging out in the world. It could be Ibiza or the Algarve, where I park my camper-van Vamos. Wherever I camp my van Vamos, I always keep my online marketing hat on. I live, breathe and radiate online marketing and my passion is to help you get the best Google rankings possible. Besides that I’m a sucker for travel and adventures. Do you want to live your best life, spend time in nature and try out van life? Join us on the next Camper Retreat in Portugal!

Storytelling on the road

Connect with like-minded photographers while staying at breathtaking locations. We travel together with campervans from spot to spot with the ultimate feeling of freedom. Having breakfast together in the morning, talk the day through and do our tasks in groups or separated. We evaluate each other's work and look for strengths and weaknesses. At the end of the day we have dinner and there is time for reflection, making campfires and stargazing with a nice glass of wine.

In this community there is no time to pretend to be someone else. Living in nature with with just the bare minimum gives you the power to just. Be. You.

Some say "This trip was life changing"!

After the workshop

You might have questions after the workshop. After all, it takes some time to evaluate your thoughts and the things you've learned and experienced. That's why every participant has the option to receive a personal mentor-session afterwards, preferably via Skype. During that session you can ask anything.
