Sharing my knowledge and teaching likeminded creatives how to grow their skills sets, bring their business to the next level and dream their ideas into existence is my passion. I know from own experience how much courage, willpower, resilience and diligence it takes to stand out in your creative field, to monetize your creativity, and transform what you’re passionate about into a profitable business. But I know it is absolutely possible! Why? Since I am a living example of it myself.
DESIGNED JUST FOR YOU
The 1-day 1:1 workshop/masterclass will be designed just for YOU. It will be customized to your specific interests, and built around the skill sets you wish to enhance and the topics, you wish to know more about. The motivation for attending a private workshop is often to quickly advance your technical skills, get a creative refill, and improve your creative vision. And this is exactly what we will aim for!
My 1:1 workshops usually take place in my beautiful hometown Aarhus, the second largest city of Denmark, and the city chosen as Cultural Capital of Europe last year. Aarhus is located only 3 hours direct train journey from Copenhagen Central Station, and the closest airport is Aarhus Airport or Billund airport. Since I am travelling a lot, I will also be offering a limited number of one-on-one workshops and mentoring sessions throughout the year in Copenhagen, Paris, Rome, Venice, NYC, Mallorca, London, and Tuscany. You are always welcome to send me a request, if you have any specific wishes.
We ususally start our one-on-one workshop together at 10 am and end at 5 pm. We meet over a good cup of coffee and late breakfast, and set your goals for the day. In addition to teaching sessions, hands-on training or other skill-oriented classes, we can also go for a 'walk-and-talk' along the sea, in the nearby forest, or in the charming old part of the center of Aarhus. We can swing by the green market, my favorite local prop and antiques boutiques, the food market and meet up for lunch in my very own healthy café, Greenilicious, in the heart of the city.
Not two workshops are the same, and your workshop will of course be designed just for you and your particular needs, interests and requirements. As soon as the fee has been registered, and a date been chosen, I will start the planning of your full-day private bespoke workshop.
MEALS & REFRESHMENTS
All meals and refreshments during the active teaching time of the workshop are included in the workshop fee. In case you have a food sensitivity, just let me know in advance of the workshop, and I'll be happy to find solutions that take weel care of you.
I have partnered up with two of our favorite, super cozy, family-driven hotels in the center of Aarhus (close to my studio and home), so please feel free to add on accomodation by clicking the button below. Should you wish to book a hotel on your own, we'll be happy to send you our hotel recommendations.

"AFTER SPENDING JUST A FEW DAYS TOGETHER AT A SCANDINAVIAN CHRISTMAS TALE RETREAT, A VERY SPECIAL BOND WAS CREATED BETWEEN EVERYONE IN OUR LOVELY GROUP."
It was such an honor to be a part of this creative bunch, made extra special by our lovely leader and teacher Sif. Her passion and ability to inspire, her big heart and kind words, her empathy and unlimited generosity are so precious and inspiring that we were all in awe. I came back home with a full heart and lots of new friends. It was unforgettable! Thank you Sif for bringing us all together and sharing your hearts and wisdom!”

SIGNED UP FOR SIF'S WORKSHOP HOPING TO HONE MY VISUAL STORYTELLING TECHNIQUES...BUT I LEFT WITH SO MUCH MORE."
For me, the main benefits came when Sif shared the inside secrets of her incredible personal success story and from receiving invaluable individual feedback which she happily provided beyond workshop hours and even upon my return home! Importantly, she makes you feel comfortable instantly, no matter your photographic experience. Her down-to-earth approach helped participants to immediately gel well together which made the workshop fun.
Sif's style of communicating her visual storytelling knowledge is unique and made me feel truly connected and inspired. I returned home equipped with more tools and fully motivated to take action on my dreams.
I can’t speak highly enough of Sif's workshops.
