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.

WPPI Road Trip Atlanta

Rain rain, go away! Un-seasonable rains greeted us in Atlanta, but it was warmed by the hospitality and friendliness of some wonderful people. The crowd here had a great energy and it was a lot of fun to share some ideas on capture and workflow. Interestingly, the hotel where the convention was at was also host to a cross-dressing/transvestite convention. I had no idea they had conventions for that. Made for an interesting evening at the hotel bar, that's for sure.

Thanks to all who came to the program! Please download the notes here, and don't forget that you'll need the password given to you at the program to download and open the file. Click to Download.

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
