Workshop Testimonials

Meeting and learning from Sandra will undoubtedly change your life. 

Besides her exceptional talent, the woman behind the work will blow you away and move you. I followed my heart and joined the Mode e Arte crew in Ravello Italy October 2014 & her workshop in Thailand February 2016. 

Sandra not only taught me about photography as I listened to her presentations and watched her work but she took me under her wing and asked very pointed questions as we were walking the streets of a small Italian village. These one-on-one discussions helped me to get outside myself and see my work and my business from different points of views. Thoroughly life changing.

“Moda e Arte changed my life.  I know that sounds dramatic, but it’s true.

When I signed up for the Fall 2014 workshop in Italy, I was worried that maybe I had made a mistake, maybe I was spending too much money, or that I would not get anything out of it. After the amazing 3 day workshop, I realized that no amount of money could have paid for the experiences I had, the instruction I received and the lifelong friends that I made there.

Everyone involved were truly amazing teachers and were ever helpful in listening to what each attendee wanted to get out the workshop.  With one-on-one instruction from these world-renowned photographers and amazing styled shoots for your portfolio, you will leave the workshop a better photographer with experiences that you will never forget.

Attending the Moda e Arte Workshop is the best personal and business decision I have made.  Thanks to everyone involved for making it so special!”

“I knew that the Moda e Arte workshop was something that I wanted to take part in as soon as I found out the unbelievable staff that would be participating in it. The Amalfi Coast is one of my favorite places on earth, so it did not take long to convince me once I found out it was in Ravello, Italy.

I love photography and it has been a hobby of mine for many years but I knew very little about wedding photography. I went with my gut, took a chance and signed up even though I knew most of the photographers were going to be extremely talented and in the professional industry. I am so glad that I followed my heart because the experience holds incredible memories and friendships that will last a lifetime! I learned so much about myself as a person and as a photographer.

Sandra taught me how to look at my images in a new light. She points out what makes your pictures unique and observes your style of photography to give beneficial feedback. Sandra also helped me find beauty in the images that I thought were flawed. This not only made my portfolio stronger but also gave me the confidence to continue in the industry.
