Waterfall Event 2
After the resounding success of our inaugural Waterfall Event last year, we are thrilled to announce the return of this unique opportunity for all level photographers to enhance their portfolios amidst the breathtaking landscapes of Latvia. At Ilvy PhotoArt Events, we pride ourselves on curating exceptional experiences, and the Waterfall Event is no exception. The event will be happening in an old manor 2 hours drive away from Riga. Summer is the perfect time as there is a lot of daylight and very long sunsets and sunrises with the most beautiful natural light. This will be an all inclusive event, so you won't have to worry about the transportation, accommodation or food. Our collaboration with Latvian lingerie brand Flash You And Me ensures that every shot is a masterpiece, with carefully curated styling adding an extra layer of sophistication to your work.

We've got your transportation needs covered with our comfortable and spacious vans, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable journey throughout the event. From airport transfers to transportation to and from our shooting locations, you can count on our reliable service. Our vans provide ample space for you to relax, interact with fellow photographers, and store your equipment, making your travel experience as convenient and comfortable as possible.
Accommodations at Kimale Manor promise a comfortable and intimate stay, with each participant enjoying a private bedroom. While the bathrooms and toilets are shared, this communal setting fosters a sense of camaraderie among participants. For those seeking more privacy, an alternative option is available in the picturesque old town of Kuldīga. This beautiful apartment offers the luxury of a private bedroom and bathroom, ensuring a restful retreat after a day of photography. The convenience of a 15-minute drive to the main venue is complemented by secured transportation, with pickup services provided. Opting for this option incurs an additional cost, providing participants with the flexibility to tailor their accommodation to their preferences and budget.
Our photoshoots are designed to offer a dynamic and collaborative experience. You'll have the opportunity to work within a 2:1 ratio, with two photographers collaborating on capturing the beauty of one model, providing a supportive and creative atmosphere. Additionally, for those looking to explore more intricate compositions, we offer the possibility of shooting duo and even group shots with multiple models, allowing for a quartet or more in a single frame. At the culmination of our event, we'll host an exciting photo contest. Each photographer can submit approximately five of their best images taken during the event, and a friendly competition ensues, with prizes awaiting those who craft the most outstanding pictures. It's a fantastic opportunity to showcase your creativity and receive recognition for your artistry (the contest is a voluntary activity). Male model available on a request.
Our lineup of models for the event is as diverse as the art you'll be creating. You'll have the opportunity to capture their beauty and grace in various genres, including fashion, portraiture, and art nude photography. Whether you're seeking elegance, emotion, or artistic expression, our models are here to bring your creative visions to life.
Our primary shooting venue is a spacious 19th-century manor, offering diverse settings for your photographic exploration. Additionally, we'll venture to the Old Town of Kuldīga, known for its historic charm and architectural character. The highlight of the event includes sessions by the widest waterfall in Europe, providing a unique opportunity to capture nature's grandeur. These locations, each with its own distinct appeal, ensure a variety of visual narratives for photographers aiming to enhance their portfolios.
All meals will be cooked by our private chef. On your arrival day we will meet and greet you with a nice dinner at the Kimale Manor. During the full shooting days our chef will be cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner. On the departure day we will have a farewell breakfast and then we will take you to the airport.
