A LIFETIME TO LEARN
MEET HÉLÈNE DUJARDIN

A former pastry chef, now living in Charleston, South Carolina, Hélène’s photography reveals her passion for natural light, seasonal and fresh ingredients, as well as a love of travel and genuine interest in people.

You’ll also get the chance to jump right in and start shooting with Hélène’s helpful and thoughtful guidance.
DAY 2: WORKSHOP (ON LOCATION)
