A Luxurious Odyssey Crafted to Rekindle the Artist Within
Join us on an enchanting journey to the heart of the South of France, where romance lingers in the air. We have orchestrated experiences to awaken a deep connection with the Earth, to seek out simple beauty and joy, inspiring your heart to create and fall in love all over again.
Picture yourself immersed in the opulent embrace of the countryside, inhaling its gentle fragrances and crisp air, savoring the region's finest wines. Spend eight unforgettable hours amidst the grounds of the iconic and lavish Château d'Estoublon, nestled on the sun-kissed slopes of the Alpilles, in the heart of Provence. This is more than just a place; it's a canvas where stories come to life. The luxury and exclusive estate is renowned for its exceptional olive oils and wines, a testament to the artistry of its creators.
Serendipitously, or perhaps by destiny, their Château's ROSEBLOOD wine embodies the very essence of the land, the lifeblood of the château itself. This wine is a tale of passion. And within this story, you'll discover 'EGLANTINE - the French wild rose.' Just as the vines intertwine and blossom, this poetic rose tells a story that effortlessly weaves, like a tapestry, with Château d'Estoublon's history. It's a fragrant ode to the creative spirit, a symbol of the artist within each of us.
These are the stories that will inspire you to flourish and blossom, bringing you unspeakable joy as an artist. Your hosts, the radiant Amelia Soegijono, will lead this experience, hosted with grace and warmth, guided by the enchanting vision of Joy Proctor, and expertly curated and planned by Stephanie Anen from Nomad Republic International."
Experience a dreamy and romantic content creation photoshoot day, deep in the heart of the South of France, within the enchanting walls of a castle in Provence. Perched above a hill-top village in the Upper Var, the Château de Moissac-Bellevue served as a noble Provençal family's countryside retreat in the early 17th century. After an exemplary and award-winning restoration, it now commands breathtaking views of the valley, where endless vineyards and olive trees grace the landscape. This château, with its grand entrance hall, expansive drawing and dining rooms, lush gardens, impressive kitchen, and elegant bedrooms, embodies the harmonious art of living in the Provencal sunlight.
Our photoshoot draws inspiration from the ambiance of a French 'Boudoir' room, featuring the exquisite 'LADY ROSE' and a series of beauty shoots designed by Joy Proctor, adorned in luxurious gowns. This session will enhance your portfolio, showcasing your ability to interpret not only beauty portraits and boudoir lifestyle sessions but also commercial work. Led by Amelia Soegijono and thoughtfully curated by Stephanie Anen, this experience is limited to just five attendees, ensuring you have the space to create unique and impactful content.
This is a rare opportunity to immerse yourself in the beauty of this exclusive château, granting access to a select few.
The experience will be from 2-8pm, followed by dinner, and accommodation nearby can be arranged at approximately 100-150 euros per person. Please inquire for details
Bonjour Amelia! I just wanna say thank you (formally and properly) from the bottom of my heart for having a vision for the Paris workshop and for making it come true. Before going to this workshop, I was anxious for the future. But my eyes were opened and I got excited when you said that this is actually a “golden opportunity”
2022 Paris workshop highlight
I see you like a mentor. Someone wise, not just an immensely talented photographer.
I am now more confident as a photographer.
I feel supported and heard. Everyone needs a person like you in their life. It should be mandatory!

Listening through Amelia’s sessions, I felt inexplicably moved through out the two days. She could truly understand the difficulties and bottlenecks we were and are facing, and she gave us faith and encouragement through genuinely talking through her utmost personal stories and past experiences

It wasn't sad tears it was a release of energy and limiting beliefs. I have never had someone see me and hold space for me and pray for my happiness. it was an emotional experience for me.
You showed me everything that is possible.

I just wanna say thank you (formally and properly) from the bottom of my heart for having a vision for the Paris workshop and for making it come true.
Before going to this workshop, I was anxious for what the future holds. But my eyes were opened and I got excited when you said the space that held my anxiety is actually a place for “golden opportunity”.
All of a sudden that anxiety was replaced by excitement for the fresh new possibilities.
From the way you interact your clients (speaking, posing, gifting) and all of your efforts, now I understand why you’re successful.
I always hear people’s advice that you have to go “above and beyond for your clients” - but I never understood or knew how much of “above and beyond” they were talking about.
I see YOUR above and beyond and it really
Now I understand :)
I have to share this good news with you. The styled shoot I did in Jakarta is going to get featured on Greylikes Weddings!!!!

First of all, thank you again for the workshop, it was an extraordinary experience. I was right when I said that I wanted to learn from you more than just your photographic experience.
You express your passion, your mission, your love with a lot of respect, wisdom and altruism.
You are way more than a photographer, or an artist. Your patience and your charisma really inspired me. In my opinion, it is important to have a picture of a woman who inspires us in this world where women still have a small place. To me, you are one of these people who inspire me to be the best version of myself.
Through your workshop, I found my faith that I lost few years ago. And I am more inspired and motivated than ever when it comes to photography. I am more motivated than ever in my projects and want to thank you again a million times.
When you have been so busy doing the same thing for a long while, you often feel lost. At this point, some choose to keep moving forward persistently, but more people give up.
I feel extremely fortunate that, just when I was hitting a roadblock on my photography journey, the workshop in Taiwan took place and taught not only the techniques of film photography, but more importantly, it helped us find our innermost voice - and discover our true inner artist.
Amelia shared with complete transparency and openness, enlightening our thoughts and perspectives about photography. Listening through her sessions, I felt inexplicably moved throughout the two days. She truly understood the difficulties and bottlenecks we were facing.
In this fast-paced world we always try to push for efficiency in trying to achieve “success”. If we don’t reach our goals in such limited time, we start doubting ourselves and want to give up completely. However, Amelia reminded me that the process is always far more fruitful and important than the outcome itself. If we keep moving towards the right direction, even with challenges along the way, we will eventually reach our goal.
I look forward to joining another workshop experience, chasing and achieving our dreams together!!

It wasn't sad tears, it was a release of energy and limiting beliefs. I have never had someone see me
and hold space for me and pray for my happiness... it was an emotional experience for me.
You showed me everything that is possible... I need to let go of feeling so far behind
everyone else and just start asking for what I want in my life.
I have to pinch myself that I was there and watched you create them.
Thank you for the chance to shoot with you in Paris...
I am blessed to have had the opportunity to create beside you.
My first shoot after the workshop is going to be featured on Once wed at the end of the year and I am just editing my second one I just did in Hawaii. Hopefully I can get one more done this year... (:
