Effigy will create a generation of photographers that are not only technically strong, but empathetically visual. By immersing attendees in a fully luxury experience, igniting their senses and stripping away judgement, Nóbl hopes to create a safe space where photographers can take artistic chances and emerge a more sensitive and well rounded artist.

To achieve this, Nóbl Events has partnered with Fairmont Hotels & Resorts to gain unprecedented access to their most historic and luxurious hotel in Canada, Le Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City for our inaugural workshop.

 Frontenac boasts a rich history dating back to 1893, and has hidden gems never before used to host a workshop dedicated to the wedding industry of this caliber. Not only will photographers be exposed to grand architecture, lush, fine art design geared towards publication, and unparalleled service from the Frontenac staff, but will be promised unique portfolio building content that meets the standard of luxury needed to attract high clients.


Attendees will stay at Chateau Frontenac for Four Days and Three Nights. While on site they will have two days of opportunities to shoot highly curated vignettes designed to reproduce the must have moments of a high end wedding experience, while being book ended with seminars meant to fill them with actionable information that will help them propel their business into the next stage of it’s development: 

  • 2 days of seminars, hands on shooting alongside our photography hosts, special guests & a plethora of networking opportunities  
  • 3 fine-art, heirloom styled editorial shoots with 2 diverse bride & groom models 
  • Total of 6 chic luxury looks from our  partners at White Toronto and Surmesur
  • Multiple fashion forward vignettes, flat lays, as well as full ceremony and reception set ups to grow your portfolio
  • 3 nights accommodation on site at Fairmont le Chateau Frontenac 
  • Welcome Cocktail & Reception, Daily Breakfasts and Lunches, including beverages
