SWPP Yin Yang Workshop with Doug Gordon

Doug Gordon and I shared the room last night to share some of the most important differences and similarities in our businesses and photographic style. Each time I work with Doug, I appreciate what he does even more. He's a fantastic educator and amazing business man, not to mention he's a great photographer. It was a pleasure to do a little public banter with him :-) Doug also has his disturbing to some, wallpaper for others, new Animoto ad photo on his blog. Check it out.

NYC workshop with Doug Gordon and I

It's funny how opposites attract. Doug Gordon and I couldn't be more
different in our approaches to the art and business of wedding
photography and yet we seem to compliment each other quite well. I
always enjoy doing workshops in tandem with him as I feel like we can
offer people a really broad and diverse perspective in to how to
capture great images and run a successful business. He certainly knows
what he's talking about with a bustling studio, staff of 27, and
nearly 1000 weddings a year - amongst many other things. He took the
class through a wide variety of shooting conditions and locations on
the first day of the workshop and I shared tips on creativity, capture
technique, inspiration, branding, and of course, workflow. It was a
power packed 2 days (actually more than that really, including the 5am
Trash the Dress shoot). Now I just need to figure out if I'm the + or
– pole.

The workshop sold out and we had nearly 100 people on the waiting
list, so thanks to those who registered early! I really enjoyed
meeting all the new people, and seeing some familiar faces too. Thanks
again to everyone who attended! I hope we'll see you again soon :-) If
