I think any photographer will tell you that no matter how much you know about photography, there is always more to learn. Always. Part of my job is making sure I am constantly pushing myself to be a better photographer. I owe it to myself. More importantly, I owe it to my clients.
I was lucky enough to attend a 2-day photography workshop called the HoffShop a few weeks ago which was hosted by Hoffer Photography. It was hard and intense, but I loved it. Not only did I walk away with a TON valuable information, I got to meet a group of incredibly talented photographers who inspire me and I’m proud to call my friends (awwwwwww).
I didn’t take many photos at the workshop, but here are a few. One of the things I loved the most was the fact that this wasn’t one of those workshops where the teacher finds the perfect light, poses the couple, and then has all the students take a photo that they didn’t create or envision. We were encouraged to take what we learned home with us and implement it into our own work and style. That, in my opinion, is how you really learn and grow.
Many, many thanks to Tony and Amy Hoffer for being so open and for putting together such an amazing workshop!
