NineDots Gathering 2016 from Thompson Granger Films on Vimeo.
I am so happy to see this video, made by the very talented Thompson Granger Films, of myself and fellow speakers at the Nine Dots Gathering in London last November. When they asked me to speak, I had no idea how I would fall absolutely in love with London, the very special folks who put this experience together and the incredibly talented photographers who attend it every year. It really is an honor to have this job, to educate others and to follow my own passion. To quote myself in this video, find what gets you out of bed in the morning… and channel it into your photography. Sometimes life itself gets in the way of our personal and professional growth, and photography can take a back seat when we aren’t getting paid, but that’s the challenge. Take your camera to the grocery store. Pack your camera along with your wallet. Go out and find good light, then wait for the moment. It’ll come, and you’ll be happy you took the time to discover it.
I couldn’t be more excited to return to London this May 2-3! My Moment-Driven Workshop: LONDON is a two-day shooting workshop is designed to help you step outside your comfort zone. You will photograph strangers, learn how to capture moments without posing, and work on what is holding you back as a photographer. You CAN capture authentic, emotionally storytelling images without posing or direction, and no longer fear getting the camera where it needs to be. Book before March 18 for a 50 pound discount!
