Join us for the last workshop of the 2016 season held at Wildcat Hill this year! Have you been wanting to take a workshop with Kim Weston? Here is your chance to come to Carmel this year. "An Adventure of a Lifetime! That's what Milan and I discussed driving back to Los Angeles. The last few days were awesome. What a wonderful atmosphere to learn in. Kim and Gina, you were awesome hosts. Learning about the Weston legacy first hand was incredible. I was flattered to be able to show some of my work. Shooting side by side with Kim was inspiring. Gwen was awesome and just nailed each concept. Enjoying a delicious lunch and the conversation was enlightening. I could go on and on about the things I'll remember so fondly.
The bottom line is an expression of heartfelt gratitude for allowing Milan and I into your home and teaching us about the Weston Family Style of photography. We are all a sum of our life experiences. This was definitely and Adventure of a Lifetime. I hope to return next year to be able to spend more time on Wildcat Hill. On behalf of my friend Milan and myself, A heartfelt thank you". Gary
