Residency of the North Two Day Photography Masterclass Retreat – What to Expect
Your Photography Masterclass.
After the success of last year’s two-day Photography Masterclass retreat in County Durham, the team at Digitalab are proud to announce the 2nd Residency of the North for July 2019.
We have created a unique two-day retreat featuring some of the biggest names in the photographic industry. Feedback from last years event has been truly inspirational, and we wanted to deliver an even better event this year. See some of the fantastic feedback below.
Tickets include six masterclass sessions from which you can choose, including our ice-breaking welcome party on the night of the 1st setting the scene for your relaxing yet educational retreat. Class sizes are small and intimate, so you get the most from each session. Therefore places are limited, so book early. Your food is provided during the event which means you can chat, drink and dine with your fellow photographers and your masterclass speakers.

“I enjoyed everything about the residency. Being able to make my training package fit my needs by choosing from brilliant trainers. The setting is stunning and we were really looked after by the Digitalab team. The food was also amazing! It was so nice to be surrounded by other photographers and get to ‘talk shop’ as well as let your hair down and relax afterwards.”

“Had a fantastic time last year learning from the likes of Kevin Mullins, Gary Hill, Nina Mace, Liam Shaw and Dominique Shaw from York Place Studios. Well catered for both professional and amateur photographers alike. The venue is fantastic and has shot several weddings there myself and one of my daughters was married there the year before (so it must be good). Last but not least, you have the wonderful staff from Digitalab hosting the event. Enjoy this year’s event, soak up all that knowledge, then go out and shoot.”
