It has been two weeks since I first showed up at creativeLIVE, and it feels CRAZY that it was that long ago! It is still so fresh in my mind and was a real game-changing experience for me. I've really enjoyed connecting with so many of you via twitter and facebook. In fact, I've seen some incredible images from people who said that their shots were inspired by techniques from my creativeLIVE class. I cannot express how rewarding that is to me. I love to teach photography because for photographers it is their passion and a driving force in their life. When I can help someone better express their vision or pursue their passion, I feel honored to be playing a role in enriching their lives. This is why I teach and share. Though I certainly do not consider it one of the most noble causes, I do feel joy when helping bring happiness into people's lives.
In the same train of thought, I wanted to let you all know about my intensive courses that I hold. In these small classes (12-14 people) I teach two or three day intensives on a particular subject where we can shoot and you can ask me ANY questions you want! For example, for the fashion intensive I teach three days with hands on shooting of professional models, amazing hair, makeup, wardrobe in incredible locations! If you enjoyed watching the attendees on creativeLIVE and want to join me for an amazing time and hands-on workshop of your own, take a look at my upcoming workshop dates! I've got beauty classes, bridal class, fashion and more in New York, Las Vegas, and hopefully some abroad someday! If you want to see other classes I am teaching (not intensives) in other places across the country, I always have a list of my schedule on my blog including new course listings for the Long Island Photo Workshops, WPPI University, Photoshop World and more.
Now that my creativeLIVE attendees have had some time to think and reflect, they've begun to share their experiences and images online. If you want to see some images they've created, I'll let them share in their own words on their blogs/websites (see below). I am so proud of the images they created and am thrilled that I had such a great group of people! Thank you guys!! May we meet again soon!
