Guest speaking at Scott Robert Lim’s Workshop in the Bahamas!

I was honored when my friend and mentor Scott asked me to guest speak at his workshop a few months ago in the Bahamas.  Of course I said yes!   What a great opportunity it was to not only share a lot of ideas about photography with some talented young photographers, but to relax a little after a long year of weddings!  For those of you who don’t know, Scott is a renowned photographer and educator, mentoring students worldwide.  Scott offers students several opportunities a year to travel and learn from him – check out his blog for more info:

We converged in Miami where we had a meet and greet dinner, and embarked on a cruise to the exotic Bahamas.  We had a wonderful group of photographers from Great Britain, New York, Vancouver, Toronto, Houston, Miami, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.  During my lecture at the workshop, I talked about some concepts about creative lighting, posing, and composition for wedding photographers.  Many of the techniques I discussed were things that I have developed over the past few years shooting weddings.  I was hoping to provide some additional inspiration for those who are starting out in wedding photographers, as well as those seasoned veterans who are somewhat stuck in a rut.  I’m so glad I got the opportunity to share my material and interact with such a great group!   An unforgettable week!

Of course we benefited from some world class locations as we worked on our skills during the photoshoot – here are a few of my images from the week!

Many thanks to our lovely and talented models Ashley, Ella, and Kellie!
