I am so excited about these images! I attended a workshop at Pikto in Toronto last weekend, “Ultimate Fashion Photography”. The one day long course was totally inspiring. Photographer, Josh Cornell (http://www.joshcornell.com) was such a generous teacher. He covered everything from working with agencies and models to business development, and of course we got in to some shooting. It was really nice having such a small class of photographers, just 9 of us. We each had an opportunity to work with the models (Jenn and Leigh) and get to know some of the in studio equipment. This is something I have little experience with being a wedding photographer in Muskoka, Ontario. I’m almost always shooting outdoors. And when we’re indoors we’ll use the on and off camera flash, and always take advantage of natural light. Controlling massive lights with reflectors, batteries, and umbrellas is a totally different ball game.

Following any photography workshop, whether¬†Wedding Photography, Fashion or otherwise I leave with a new energy. Working with generous teachers and other talented photographers is inspiring. We’ve all got something to bring to the table and sharing experiences has become so valuable. Cheers to a new year in business, sharing ideas and inspiration!
