The day started at the magical One Way Antiques. Every nook and cranny was an adventure. It was a wonderful place to explore. Secret rooms were found (seriously!). Along with the surroundings we had two beautiful models as our muses. Then we headed to a beautiful country setting for lunch and more shooting. We created a outdoor art gallery and had way too much fun with flour. Unfortunately a storm came fast, rushing us all on the porch of the old farm house. We spent our last hour together huddled in the cozy living room, talking candidly about photography, ideas and the business. I hated to see them go. It was such a pleasure meeting all of them and sharing. I look forward to the next friends I will meet in 2013.
Here are a few testimonials from some of the participants.
In her two day workshop we not only learned what makes her mind tick but also how to unlock our own imaginations. On Saturday we had the opportunity to work with two beautiful models in two truly inspiring locations. Our first stop was at this crazy old antique store/house. Everywhere you turned there was something new to look at! It’s one of those places you drive by and think... I wonder what treasures they have in there. Our second location was at an old farm house... with chickens! Our time here was cut a bit short due to a massive storm that came blowing through. It was so neat though to sit on the front porch and watch the wind whipping through the trees and hear the rain pounding on the roof. I think this weekend confirmed my decision to move full time into photography. I LOVE what I do!
A BIG, BIG thank you to Heather for putting this workshop together! You are AWESOME!
There are a few workshops already in the works for 2013. Savannah, Pennsylvania and even England are on the list. If you are interested in hosting a workshop with me (particularly if you live in the southwest or west coast region), email me at email@example.com for details.
