I photographed these images last Sunday in England at a Natural Light Fashion Photography workshop. Yes, I traveled to England just for that! I thought I would write this post not only to share some of the photos I was able to take but also to explain why I went there.
You see, with the money I spent going to England I could have done at least 3 workshops in my local area. However, probably not with photographers I admire or even know their work, probably even not a workshop centered in the areas I want to evolve. I would have picked a portraiture one “just because”, hoping I would learn something and come back with nice images.
By going to England for that specific workshop I knew the photographer who was organizing it: Alexandra Cameron, because I’ve followed her work for about 4 years. I like her photography style very much so what better way to learn than spend a day shooting under her recommendations? She provided me and the other attendees with an amazing location, 2 models, outfits and a Hair & MakeUp Artist.
We spent the day shooting, free to direct the models and ask for tips when needed. It was also great to meet other photographers and exchange experiences, everyone was so supportive!
I don’t want to make this a huge post, I just wanted to share that if the photographers you admire the most are giving the opportunity to learn from them and spend a day photographing alongside them, then you should go for it! It’s so much more rewarding!
I leave you with the photos now.
I think the most important thing I learned that day is that I can pull it off. I tend to second guess myself often… and this workshop was just the motivational kick I needed! Now I know that with the right team I can get the content I doubted I would so many times.
So thank you to Alex and everyone who was there!
