New Workshop dates announced!

Howdy world,

I know its been a while but I just cant stop trippin’ shutters. I just wanted to let you all know that new 2015 and a 2016 workshop dates are available and selling fast! Click on the workshop link up at the top and choose your date!

The purpose of this workshop is to allow photographers to find the connection between their photographic voice, the camera and their minds. We all dream up amazing images in our mind but rarely see them through to the final image. We have to embrace the technical end of the camera in order to free our minds to just create or react. We will break through the boring and make something interesting. We will look far past the obvious. We will fail together and we will grow together through a series of shooting drills covering light (finding it and making it), composition, location shoots with models galore, worst case scenarios and the wonderfully unexpected. This workshop will be what you make it. You will learn the most important aspect of being an artist, to inspire yourself and to teach yourself! This is after all about YOU NOT ME! How I see and shoot a scene matters not. It’s how YOU react and create that will be long lasting. Through my unique teaching style I put you in a space to learn to teach yourselves and to open the doors of your personal creativity. One photographer’s creative rut may be just the place you want to be standing. You will be challenged at any level and you will grow. This I promise you! There will be a Monday afternoon opening so we can all get to know one another and we can take a peek at everyones work. (portfolio review) followed by a dinner party!!  Tuesday starts early with shooting exercises to get our heads all pointed in the  same direction. Then the bevy of beautiful models arrive where we will shoot in all types of scenarios and push into unchartered territories, all the while looking far past the obvious! The pushing, challenging, editing, laughing, crying and learning  will go all day  Tuesday through Wednesday evening. Thursday we normally edit our work to polish the images.  Occasionally the group would rather shoot more. We are flexible and follow.There will be little sleep and brain overloads. We will all be staying in the same mansion running a muck night and day! This workshop is directed at the professional wedding and portrait photographer with an abundance of refined art. For this particular workshop it is a must that you have a comfortable grasp of the manual operation of your camera. Your retainer of 30% will reserve you a space in this workshop. This workshop will be strictly limited to 15 and usually sells out fast.

Heres a taste of what you are in for.  Keep in mind, these images were made in worse case scenarios with crazy time limits. You will fail, you will learn from them. You will grow.
