Summer Workshops – 1920’s with Emily

Recently I had a whole weekend of 1920’s inspired shoots, just a coincidence, but still so much fun. I ran a workshop with Emily, one that had been postponed since March 2020, thanks to you know who! Finally we managed to get it done. It was a small group in between lockdowns, but glad to…

It felt so good, to be able to get back to what I love…teaching photography. I recently taught back to back Still Life and then I got back to back creative portraits. This workshop was actually sold out months ago…twice. Damn Covid stopped it. So glad I finally was able to run it for these…
