Instagram Weekend House Party at Rigaud
with Matt Inwood


15 – 18 March 2019

Want to improve your phone photography skills? Feel challenged by hashtags, content & engagement? Mind blown by the new "story" option?

Spend three nights in a convivial house party atmosphere, eating and drinking rather too much and learning how to get the most from your Instagram presence.
