Every January I like to take time and attend a few workshops and lectures on photography and business so that I can become the best photographer and small business owner I can be. I love starting the year inspired and setting big goals to work towards. It’s fun and keeps my job exciting. This year I got to spend a few days up in Mystic, CT for Mystic Seminars, which is one of my favorite events in the country. They have some of the best photographers in the world for speakers and I get to spend time with other photographer friends who live all over the country. After Mystic I got to attend Justin & Mary’s What’s Next workshop and learn about new ways to use off camera flash and what I should work on in my business. Here are a few snapshots from the last two weeks of classes. I spent most of the time paying attention and taking notes so I don’t have that many pictures, but below you can see photos of Justin Marantz, Sue Bryce, Britney Gardner, Roberto Valenzula & Mary Marantz. They are all fabulous photographers and great teachers. I can’t wait to apply what I’ve learned in a wedding and make even better photos than before.
