Day 1- Fly In- June 3
Fly in to Cancun airport and catch a cab or ask us about arranging transportation to the Tribe House. We will get settled and you can go shopping or sit by the pool or beach until everyone arrives. We will go to dinner that night at a fabulous restaurant. After dinner, join us for drinks by the pool and some night swimming or head out on the town.
Day 2- June 4- Breakfast lesson and discussion over coconut lattes and avocado toast at an amazing cafe. (Or, you can eat something else, but that is our recommendation!) Spend the day at a cenote, clear water swimming area in the jungle, with us if you like, or head off and enjoy your own plans. You can spend as much time with us or as little as you like. That evening, we will head to the beach for a lesson and shooting against the teal water as the sun sets. Our models will be dressed to impress. We will start the lesson, before the golden hour, so that we are shooting by prime light time. Bring a swimsuit. We will be jumping in! As the sun sets and you are in waist deep teal water, the salt air blowing around you, we know that you will feel your creativity rise.
Day 3- June 5- Get up and ready, we are headed to Bacalar! It is a 2.5 hour drive. This clear water paradise is known for the aqua and teal colors of the water. We will spend the day here shooting and swimming. Our bus will take us there and back.

We have to take it easy, because that night, we are headed ziplining at Fuego! This is a huge adventure park and you will need to be rested to be ready to zipline through fire, drive ATVs on an offroad course and more. This is one of our all time favorite activities. Be prepared to get wet. Dinner and drinks are included in this evening. We will be there from about 4pm- 10pm.
Day 5- June 7- A great breakfast and then we will go to photograph the Mayan ruins in Tulum. There is a gorgeous beach view and hidden caves there as well. After that, we will head to a cenote for some jungle swimming. That night, you can choose to do whatever you like.
Day 6- June 8- Fly home day. We will have this morning open for one on one time for business questions with Maureen, if you like and group discussions. You can leave at any time. the house is open for you all day. We are sad to see you go, but hope you had an amazing time with us!

Why is this worth it?
This is a work/ vacation trip. You will get to spend time learning in one of the most beautiful places in the world. The education you will receive from Maureen will help you to improve your business and shooting. You will also get one on one time with her to ask any specific questions pertaining to yourself, almost like a mentoring session. This is a workshop combined with having fun. You will be able to shoot for your portfolio and websites and get advice on how to market those. During our posing lesson, you can watch and learn different techniques that you may not have used before. We will be teaching full sun shooting and editing, which is a very specific genre and is a fantastic skill to learn.
If you are a beginner, spend time with Maureen, learning your settings and how to shoot on a pro level. She will be available for any questions you may have.
Maureen and her staff will be taking headshots and photos of you all the whole time, so that you have memories of the trip and marketing for your photography pages, shot by a professional.
On top of all the business reasons, you will be able to relax, have fun, zipline, see some incredible sites, swim in clear water, do some shopping and meet friends. Not to mention, you get to stay in the Tribe House!
It breaks down to about $198 a day to attend, which is certainly an amazing deal for both education, accommodations, shooting, activities, transportation, relaxation and photos.
