Behind the Scenes of Your Italian Fix: Day 3

by Bianca @ Italian Fix


Read in 1 minute


>> This is day 3 of a 7 day party delivering a sneak-peek at how getting your Italian Fix is the best thing you can do with your precious vacation time.<<


Meeting Leela Cyd could change your life.

Because learning photography is a skill with big possibilities.

And learning photography with someone like Leela is an opportunity that rarely happens.

Her style is pitch perfect. Fresh. Magnetic. Optimistic.

Which is why she’s so damn busy on shoots for high level clients around the globe.

But you’ve got her. For a week. In Italy.

She’ll help you create magazine worthy images.

She’ll encourage you with her enthusiasm.

She’ll support you with her kindness.

She’ll guide you into doing more of your great work.

Because you don’t achieve big things alone. You have to constantly learn, push, expand and connect.

You need to hang out with people like you. You gotta surround yourself with people you admire; people who lift you up and help you be more. But being with people who help you reach the next level, whatever that is, is your choice.

But we’re giving you a choice that’s pretty easy to make. A week of time for yourself. In Florence. In Italy. With mega-watt fun. We think it’s a no brainer.

Because truthfully — we all have a desire to be better. Smarter. Faster. Slower. More inspired. More skilled. More connected.

The big question is: What can you create alone?

And what can we create together?

Answering that question is precisely WHY we’ve created YOUR special week of learning and opportunity.

And it’s gonna be epic. And it’s available to just twelve people.

Join us for the most creative week of your life.

Having survived breast cancer this past year ALL I want to do is Live fully and appreciate everything. Her photos express the poignant vulnerability of the Now.

A week in Italy would make me smile more, ask questions, and loosen my belt a notch. In my creative life I’m struggling with how to find the time and space to let myself really really stretch. Leela could support me by moving to NYC and being my neighbor and… Read more »


Ms. Sara Kate, You make me smile — I do hope you come to Italy with us, why the hell not?! To be your neighbor would be a delight. Come back to the West Coast where we could eat oranges from the trees and take the little one to the… Read more »
