Some very exciting news to pass along today!
The immensely talented and incredibly inspirational Jerry Ghionis, one of the world’s best wedding photographers, arrived at the studio today to kick off his i.c.e. Society workshop!
After the weeklong workshop, Jerry and I will be starting our 2011 Power of Passion Tour Saturday Feb. 12 at the Sheraton Denver Tech Center Hotel. I’m so excited to get back on the road! Remember, if you still haven’t bought tickets, you can save $20 using the promotional code “SAN11.”
Speaking of the tour, prior to starting his workshop, Jerry and I stopped by a sound studio today to record some captivating audio bites for some promotional tour material. (Sorry for the grainy photos. They were taken with a camera phone.)
If you’ve never had the pleasure of hearing Jerry speak, then you’re honestly doing yourself a disservice. His energy is through the roof, and of course, his knowledge is endless. Our studio is truly fortunate to host such a passionate display of photography.
You can really feel the electric vibe in the studio today. What a fantastic way to start the week!
This week’s workshop is extremely intimate, with a limited number students allowed in order to create the ideal learning atmosphere. Photographers from as far as Alaska made the trip here, as the seminar has been known to change a photographer’s world, according to previous attendees.
Today (Monday) Jerry began the seminar by critiquing each photographer’s work, providing helpful feedback on everything from lighting to posing to cropping.
Throughout the seminar, students will get to see Jerry in action during a live shoot at the studio, as well as one-on-one private mentor sessions with “The MacGyver” of photography.
I can’t say it enough how great it is to be in the presence of such a talented and motivated photographer. Sharing ideas with Jerry truly makes me want to push myself ever harder.
