Join my team as we set up, style, and create content days worldwide. It only makes sense that I share my travels and that knowledge with other creatives who have the same passion. If you are ready to go international, we are too! Kena Iversen Photography is partnering with Viking Adventure Industries to bring you the experience of a lifetime. This content retreat is created for the passionate adventurer, the photographers & the videographers that are at any stage, who just want to capture insane content.
June 4th - 8th, 2023
Isle of Skye, Scotland UK
A magical styled content retreat for photographers who are looking for an adventure in the Scottish Highlands. What makes this retreat unique is both Kena Iversen Photography & Viking Adventure have been to these incredible landscapes so you will be getting the most out of this trip as we've done the research for you. We have six incredible shoots set for you with the possibility of two others! And we'll keep you updated on that!
You'll get 3 days and 4 nights at the House of Juniper (the most incredible little place), all breakfast + lunch + dinners, with all six epic shoots that you will not want to miss
o We'll have the welcome party ready and waiting for you! Fully set with some local dishes and drinks upon your arrival
o We have full access to everything the House of Juniper has to offer! Not only will you be enjoying some traditional Scottish meals but you will have access to the bar, adventure equipment, the spa/sauna, etc
o While we collaborate with our fellow creatives, making new friendships and memories you'll also be immersing yourself in the local culture
o We'll be visiting a variety of local gems including Old Man of Storr, the fairy pools, historic castles, all the rolling hills and you know I love me some highland cows so have to include them too
Please note: there are many locations we will be shooting at that will require moderate hiking so be prepared! We will be visiting in the middle of the summer which means very long days, about 17 hours in total. Make sure to pack light and wear the correct clothing (keep in mind where we are at that there is always a chance for some rain and wind) and don't forget those hiking boots! We want to avoid the public as much as possible so we'll be shooting at the most popular locations at sunrise or sunset. You will have some time to explore between shoots but we've packed in a LOT of things for you so if you need the time to rest (use the spa!)
o Included will be six adventure/elopement shoots with one-two couples per shoot. Each shoot will be at least 2+ hours, so you know you're going to leave with a crazy amount of content.
o Every shoot will have its own unique style. We'll be keeping to some traditional Scottish traditions in our shoots while still having a style all its own
o Each of our photographers will get time to individually pose the models. We don't want you all leaving with the exact same content, that's not our style. Our groups will switch out often so as to make sure everyone gets the opportunity for that gorgeous light
What is to be said about the House of Juniper?! They are so lovely! They have all the Highland hospitality you will ever need. They are helping us to create the ultimate experience in what is a gem of a spot for each of you.
o The House of Juniper is located in a perfect location on the Isle of Skye and overlooks the sea and mountains
o You can unwind in the steam room and sauna and then head over to the on-site bar
o You will be staying in either a cabin or room in the Manse. All of which are conveniently located walking distance from town. There will be no public guests at the time so we have the entire place to ourselves!
o Lodging and food will be provided - keep in mind your flight is not included
Pricing + Information
The House of Juniper has on-site cabins along with classic, deluxe, and luxurious rooms in The Manse.
Deluxe rooms are reserved for those traveling alone, there will be individual beds in these rooms, and will potentially be sharing a room, NOT a bed, with another solo attendee.
Luxurious and classic rooms will be reserved for those bringing a plus one and will have shared beds. If you are traveling with a plus one, you will have your own private room.
$800 - bring a significant other, travel buddy, or BFF (this is an addition to your package)
This is for someone that is NOT photographing. They will be able to stay in your room with you at the House of Juniper for the full 3 days and 4 nights. They can participate in our welcome party and enjoy the food as well as spend whatever downtime with you. They are not permitted to come to the shoots but will have plenty of time to explore on their own and see the majestic sites the Highlands have to offer.
This is a retreat for photographers of all levels, although we recommend being comfortable with posing and directing. It is not necessary and you are more than welcome to observe and learn from us all but having some knowledge helps. If your goals are to book some more international work this is a step in the right direction. Both Viking Adventure and I will be an open book throughout the whole process, while there is not any actual education time set aside please pick our brains at any time.
