English and French lang.


To ensure the best conditions for shooting and enough space at locations, we are going to split our photo group each day into two teams, each team with its own location schedule and inner group schedule.

Photographers work in a group of two with each of the models, the length of each session is two hours. / Two photographers can shoot together in the group or split their time and work each  1:1. 

Individual teams will be assembled based on the required support of each participant, the style of the participant's photography, the language, and the preferences (in the case of an agreement between two photographers).

Photographers can pre-book the model  ( I propose my coordination ) or they can decide on the place.

Private sessions are possible to arrange any of the event days in regard to the shooting schedule ( the shooting schedule will be set before the event in regard to the weather conditions - sunny/cloudy)

Models charge 100e/1hour 


We ensure the transport from the Zadar airport to the hotel, locations, and back to the Zadar airport. The distance from Zadar airport to Metajna village is 90 min / 85km.

The exact meeting time at the airport will be set after the arrival time of all the people is known, but please, try to manage your arrival on the 27th till 16:00

( in case there are photographers with the only possible arrival after this time, we will try to manage a later pick-up. In this case please note it in the registration form  )

We do not ensure the transport from Split - in this case, you need to rent a car.
