Since starting my photography journey, somewhat later in life than most, I've become a bit of a workshop junkie ........
When I first got interested in Wedding photography one of the first people I noticed was the amazing Aga Tomaszek www.agatomaszek.com/ .... I wanted more than anything to record stunning images & emotions like she can ..... I even contacted her a few times to see if she'd be doing workshops, the answer was always "sorry, no".
With disappointment I booked another couple of Wedding Workshops which were fine, but people were so busy getting 'the shot' for their portfolios it was a struggle to gain anything too momentous out of them.
Fast forward a couple of years, the passion for Wedding photography simmering in the background.
Suddenly on my FB timeline a post from Aga popped up, a workshop, in Cheltenham at a ridiculous price for two days ................... And it included Dan Morris danmorrisphotography.co.uk/ & Eirik Halvorsen www.eirikhalvorsen.com/ too .... WOW, WOW, WOW !!!
Within seconds I'd emailed Aga and paid :) :) :) ... I HAD a place ... (the workshop had sold out within the hour !!!!)
And so started an exciting whirlwind two days - so much passion, excitement & love for their work ... a really good knowledge base on the subject & three different ways of working with clients .... it was awe inspiring to watch Aga, Dan & E-irik take it in turns to guide & advise us - fountains of so much knowledge, all with different ways of displaying & teaching us .....
Their enthusiasm was certainly contagious - I think we were a little shell shocked at how dynamic they all are together, we certainly felt like we earned our meal in the evening ......
Aga had lovingly prepared some special soup for lunch & left the boys in-charge of heating it !
But in all honesty it didn't really matter, I was exhausted from the vibrance of the course, the boundless energy & the knowledge I had gained.
I think we all felt "we had arrived as strangers, but left as friends"
