Last workshop of the Season!
Testimonials from our last Workshop:
Dear Gina and Kim,
What an experience! The inspiration and instruction the workshop provided was only outdone by the hospitality you both extended. Opening your home, lives, and passion for photography to the level you achieve made this one of the most memorable experiences in my life. This was more than a learning experience about photography--it was a learning experience about giving!
I will be back.
With profound thanks
Duane Reed, Yakima WA
Dear Gina and Kim,
Thanks so much for your hospitality and for offering all of us such a unique photographic opportunity. Your home and its history are wonderful. What a fantastic opportunity for making images under all sorts of conditions in such close proximity. As time passes and I review my images, I understand even more how expert these models were, truly making all of us stretch past our previous limits. I loved the whole experience: Carmel River Inn in such close proximity to you all and the fine restaurants and shops at The Crossroads and Barnyard, Point Lobos across the street, so to speak. Meeting Dick Garrod on Saturday was something again.
Kim, thanks for your focused and clearly explained education in approaching figure studies and photography in general, especially in terms of your artistic vision and process. Thanks also for making me realize that I have to take my photography more seriously, not only in presentation to others but also in a new creative direction of focusing on little projects or concepts to develop a meaningful portfolio. The gazpacho was something wonderful to boot. Gina, thanks for being the director of our little madhouse and for keeping all of us inline and respectful of others

Some of you may have noticed that we haven't sent out as many email newsletters this year. I have found I am spending so much time updating the site and to be really honest being frustrated a lot. So I have hired someone to help me! Yeah! Okay I listened. So soon we will have a new website and I have decided to go with a word press site. I want to update the site easily and share what we have with all of you. So stay tuned! It will be fun!!! (photo by Christa Meola from our workshop together in August.)
