We recently had the unique opportunity to catch up with photographer, Erich McVey after he hosted one gosh-darn beautifully inspired workshop at Cuffey's Cove Ranch. We've never understood why a workshop or a corporate gathering is often relegated to a stale and boring setting complete with powerpoints and bad overhead lighting, when the exchange of ideas is so very inspiring and demands a setting equally as exhilarating.
According to the uber-talented Erich McVey, in order to provide a proper platform for the exchange of ideas among creatives, one must look off-the-grid for inspirational gathering locales. The barn where the workshop perfectly set the stage for the nighttime sessions to be lit by loads of candlelight. A novel and inspired idea, indeed, especially when the stylist is Ginny Au and the floral designer is Soil & Stem (assisted by Tess Comrie) with rentals from 12th Table and perfectly calligraphed place settings by Mon Voir - you have a dream team in a dream setting.
