I keep getting incredible questions about the art of photography, setting up a business, and improving your skills...it's been getting me thinking. I know I grew in leaps and bounds when I shadowed another photographer, attended a workshop and had the opportunity to ask any and every question I have so, why not set up a time here in Minneapolis where we do just that. Here's my idea: Have 4-5 professional photographers come and each teach on something they are passionate about and then, go do the practical together! We could rent out a cool location or two, hire some models and just practice shooting but after the shoot get to talk through technique and learn from each other. My brother has been doing these type of workshops in Toronto, Canada and the amateur photographers are coming out of the woodwork and loving the experience! IÂ might even be able to get him to come! Of course, there would be expenses so, everyone would need to register and pay a registration fee...but, I still think people would love to do it! Before I go ahead and start planning I wanted to hear from you. Are you interested? Or do you know someone who would be? Would you come to Minneapolis for a Friday-Saturday workshop and learn about photography from the pro's? I'm giddy just thinking about it! My heart has always been to impart and encourage other photographers but, my blog can only do so much.
Leave a comment if you're interested and if I get enough interest (15-20 or more people) I'll put the wheels in motion and get you more details!
