just when everyone got tired of the wind, a few people decided to hang in san diego and put up with this bag of breeze - what a great workshop though and a lot of fun... hard work, but fun. It is amazing what happens when people really want to learn.
We had a small group but very intense (duh, that's in the name!) and set to the task of working four of the greatest models from bay to bay. And they were great, Jacki, Kori, Dani, and Sherry were amazing, as were Chelsey my stylist (Valerie Fowler couldn't make it) and Carol Savage who assisted. Wow, I can't say thanks enough, great job by everyone.
I am really tired...
Marc Grant was great to have along simply because of his subtle approach and gentle touch to find the magic in an image. I am amazed how effortless he makes his craft look but when done the work is strong and powerfully impressive. It was fun to share different vantage points on the same challenges and how an approach would differ... good stuff.
And a very special thanks to Ray Savage for all his help, before, during, and after the workshop, the man is like a kid. He really sucks at painting though, can't trust him with a bucket of paint and roller on a stick; God only knows where all the paint will end up.

I am sure you will see a few images over the next few days, a testimony of the diverse direction we all trekked away upon. From what I saw, there were some very different and interesting images created as everyone stepped just a bit out of the box... especially in the lighting approach. I just hope it was as good for everyone else as it was for me.
Thank you all once again.
