Alright, so I’m about a week behind on posting this…but I’ve been pretty motivated and inspired after our recent workshop! I became so wrapped up in taking photos and editing previous photos I had on hand, versus actually blogging about the event right away. Oops.
Editing photos can be a time-warp, I swear!
Our recent workshop was a blast! It was so refreshing and exciting to connect with people who LOVE photography. Here’s what one of our workshop attendees named Wendy (a wedding photographer herself) had to say about her experience:
A group of likeminded women met at the beautiful ING Cafe downtown. Slava is an international photographer, web designer and travels the world with her husband. Ruby specializes in Public Relations but also has a thriving photography business. Kat is a knowledgeable and passionate photographer who also coordinates amazing art programs to inner city kids who could never otherwise afford such equipment.
We spent the morning in small groups discussing lighting, weddings, life, aperture and anything else that came to mind, over ING’s steeped coffee, liquid sugar and whatever else we fancied. Five directionally challenged women hopped into a compact car and tried to navigate South versus North. Hilarious. (I only lived in Toronto for 10 years!) Armed with our cameras and appetite, we headed to the stylish and beautiful Holt Renfrew Cafe on Bloor St. We traded photographer’s war stories and laughed like old friends.
As someone who inherently takes responsibility for planning and ensuring people’s comfort level, it was much appreciated to have an entirely planned day that lasted until almost dinner time, breakfast and lunch and snacks, paid parking, photo adventures, knowledge sharing, and a virtual gift basket of downloads to help us with our editing, blogging and photography careers. It even had a music track list customized especially for our workshop. So wonderfully thoughtful and personable. We walked away with full bellies and even happier hearts. What an amazing day…
Such sweet words.
Thank you to Slava and Kat for ensuring that the workshop was as wonderful as it was. It was a pleasure to work with you ladies!
A big thank you to Suzy, one of our other participants, for the tulips she so generously handed out at the end of the workshop. You are so thoughtful!
