Casey James Oregon Coast Retreat

When: Thursday Aug 31- Sunday September 3

Cost: $475

Where: Tillamook, Oregon and along the Oregon Coast!!!

How Cool: The Coolest

Deposit: $150 non-refundable to reserve your spot

I am hosting a photography retreat for other rad photographers on the Oregon Coast. If you are looking for a weekend to learn, network, and grow as a photographer this is for you! I am teaming up with an incredible florist, Flora and Fern (Instagram : @floraandfern_) and HMUA Tiffany Dalling (Instagram: @tiffanybydesign) and other great vendors to provide some incredible stylized shoots. There will be 3-4 planned stylized shoots with models, gorgeous dresses, flowers and professional hair and makeup. It will be open to 8 other photographers. Our days will be spent shooting, chatting and exploring the Oregon Coast. Shoots will have a very “fine art” feel. We are staying in Tillamook, but will be shooting at various locations along the coast including Cannon Beach. There will be no formal “teaching” or speakers but rather lots of open discussions, and sharing ideas and tips with one another. We will discuss shooting, posing, editing, social media, marketing; where ever the discussions take us. I will also be an open book on how I shoot and edit (both film and digital) for those who are interested. Retreat cost covers everything including lodging at sweet location (see below), vendors cost and time, headshot by yours truly, meals and snacks, and unlimited high fives. Travel fee is not included but I can help organize car pools. It’s going to epic and you should be there! Your spot will be reserved when the deposit is paid (or paid in full.) Full payment must be received at least two weeks prior to event. Email me at to reserve your spot.

*We will also be super close to the Tillamook Cheese Factory if we need to squeeze in a tour and free cheese and ice cream samples.

Let’s get real for a minute. This schedule is Tentative (see that capital “T”) and subject to change. I want this to be fun and relaxed. We will 100% have pretty stylized shoots and grow as photographers. For sure we will have shoots early in the morning and in the evening. About 75% chance we will say to heck with something on the schedule and decided to do something else in the moment. Let’s not stress the schedule. I am a fun guy and want everyone to have fun. Super structure is not my thing, but you will leave with pretty pictures.

Our place!

Here are some picture of  about our place where we will be staying and hanging out. Some people will be sharing queen beds, rocking the bunk beds, or roughing it on a couch (this guy.) We will make sure everyone is comfortable and beds will be given out via Big Brother style. Aka first come, first serve. Aaaaand…. there is no wifi. This may be nice right?
