Southern Exposure Retreats

Photography and marketing retreats for professional henna artists

2020 Dates TBA

What is Southern Exposure? This “education vacation” is a new concept created by Darcy, just for henna professionals, or aspiring henna pros. Students will gain clarity on their brand’s mission, establish a brand strategy and marketing plan, and execute a fully-styled peak-stain photoshoot in a breathtaking natural or cultural setting, with an intimate, supportive group of creatives.


Who is Southern Exposure? Events are hosted by Darcy Vasudev, and we are now accepting applications for guest instructors and volunteers (keep reading).

Why Southern Exposure? With dozens of henna conferences popping up around the world, Darcy felt that the needs of advanced artists were not being fully met. Let’s face it, a one hour marketing or photography class is not even going to scratch the surface. In order to truly excel in an ever more competitive industry, better photography and branding is essential. Darcy also felt it was important to have a very small group, in order to fully customize the event to the needs of each individual. If you’ve already got the technical henna skills, but feel like you still aren’t getting the right clients, this is the event for you!

When is Southern Exposure? - Our first event, Southern Exposure Tulum, happened September 18-23rd 2019 and sold out within two weeks! Upcoming dates will be announced soon for 2020.

Where is Southern Exposure? - New destinations TBA. One thing is for certain, the locations will be beautiful natural and/or cultural heritage locations.
