Alumni Reunion Retreat in Bali, Indonesia

Somehow, over the course of 6 wild years and 30+ workshops on 6 continents, we’ve spawned a community of 433 (and counting) cherished workshop alumni… world class professional photographers from 35 countries on 6 continents… all of whom have trusted and shared in our 3-day workshop experience… all of whom have become part of our chosen photographic family… none of whom we’ll ever forget. The experiences we’ve shared with these spectacular humans at METANOIA (and Balls Out) workshops around the globe has inspired us beyond words, shaped us as humans, built this international community and gifted us lifelong friendships the world over. For this, we are forever grateful and always missing our friends.

After each and every workshop, we’ve had the same dream… to one day host a legendary alumni reunion in an extraordinary location. A chance to reconnect, re-inspire and celebrate with as many of these spectacular humans as possible. At long last, this year, that dream finally became a reality! Not a workshop, but a gathering of friends… an invigorating retreat… a celebration life… what transpired is hard to put into words, and perhaps best left swirling around inside our hearts and minds as feelings without words. But here are some beautiful ones that hint at the magic…

Metanoia – A Wedding Photography Workshop by Two Mann Studios

Before photography (and kids), we were both professional educators. Our roots and passion has always been in coaching and inspiring growth & development in others. This is why we’re continually striving to make our wedding photography workshop better and better. It’s grown and improved to the point that we feel it deserves a new, improved name.

Introducing… METANOIA – A workshop by Two Mann Studios

A noun of Greek origin, Metanoia (me-ta-noi-a) describes “a fundamental change of thinking; a transformative change of heart.” We couldn’t think of a better word to describe the heart & soul of this workshop… what we’re aspiring to achieve.
