Education is Key

I believe in Education.

I don't think there is a single career whose participants do not benefit from learning more about what they do, and how to do it better.

I just returned from another 5 day workshop, my second this year. I spent a week in sunny (and humid!) Bonita Springs, Florida for an incredible experience of working day and night with a group of photographers who are revolutionary in their field.

I went with some awesome local photographers (here we are as a matter of fact!) and we TOTALLY soaked up the knowledge.

We did NOT, however, soak up the sun. As a matter of fact, I did not even go outside of the resort except for an hour of shooting with a couple of models. Hard to believe people go to Florida and don't go for the weather! :)

I learned so much, and had an awesome time seeing some old friends and meeting some great new ones. In an age where everyone has a digital camera, professionals need more skill than ever before to set themselves apart in business. Luckily, I am up for the challenge!!!

Some of my shots from the whirlwind week....

You know what else.....? I CAN'T WAIT FOR NEXT TIME!!!! :)

Fantasmic as usual, Gerri! You're right, the photographers who don't educate, stagnate. Shame on them and good for you. Go get 'em, tigress. RAWR!
