Over the last year I have been slowly and constantly molding into an editing style that fits who I am as an artist and the kind of photographer I want to be. There are so many amazing photographers in the world and finding your unique style can be tricky. Because we are constantly visualizing someone else’s vision, ours can sometimes get lost in the fray. Over the last couple months, I’ve stopped looking at other photographers’ work, especially those in the wedding industry, and started reading fashion magazines and lifestyle decor books, and editorial design magazines. The things you will find on my site that will reoccur are my passion for lifestyle, editorial, and interior design. I love bringing these elements into my wedding work. This shoot was to show that aesthetic and create a unique flare from one of my favorite places. Palm Springs and Joshua Tree have become my newest obsession and creative outlet. I have been twice this year so far and will be going back for a third and forth.
As some may know, I’ve been wanting to branch out into the world of teaching since 2020 when I started mentoring and doing in person one one one shoots. Well today is the day to reveal that I will be hosting my first workshop in Palm Springs in November. Now. Don’t get me wrong. Lots of people do workshops. I’m not one that truly enjoys being in front of a lot of people. I am a person who would rather sit in a living room drinking wine, having bruchetta and chatting about photography.
And that my friends, is exactly what I’m going to do. This workshop will be business-based, creative-based with some shoots and photo walks thrown in. It will be about creating relationships and being able to actually, answer your questions and be able to help each person equally. There will not be photographers pushing you out of the way for ‘the shot’ and these workshops will not and I repeat not have tablescapes or details. It will be about the people, the backdrop, the emotion. That is what I’ve always wanted in a workshop for myself. That being said, I am only allowing TEN openings. If you are interested in this type of experience I’m opening up now before my workshop site goes live later this month. By the end of the week, it will be closed. Below you will find the details:
