i am absolutely thrilled to be holding a 2-day photography workshop at the beautiful oakwood resort in ontario canada. together, we will discuss, share and explore. we will laugh. some of us might even cry (good tears, of course). we will learn. and in the evenings, we will relax and share some more, on the beach by the bonfire. you will receive an intimate look at my photography and business (and even my life; i'm an open book). you will be encouraged and inspired to find and embrace your unique photography voice and path. this workshop will not only foster enlightenment, creativity and growth, but also promises to encourage and challenge you. while the core information has been set, this workshop will be custom-tailored to the unique desires, needs and wishes of the group in attendance. i hope you'll join me for this amazing experience! please find all the details below.
