i had the pleasure of attending an Illuminate Photography (http://www.illuminateworkshops.com/about/about.html) worshop over the past few weeks. yesterday, the last class in the session, was absolutely amazing. we worked with a burlesque model both in the studio and outside within our instructor’s property in the pristine mountains of colorado.
we learned. and learned. and played. and learned some more. and laughed. and laughed. it was magical.
vivienne, our model, was stunning and experienced and personable and patient. and did i mention beautiful?
richard peterson, our host and instructor invited us into his personal space–his home, land, and studio and shared some wonderful knowledge with us. his work reeks of creativity, passion and purpose. and his kindness is apparent in his beautiful an sweet eyes.
efrain, the owner of the school and creator of the class, was beyond patient in sharing basic and complex knowledge with us (as well as popeye’s chicken, beans and rice and mashed potatoes). he is the most compassionate and effective photography instructor i have ever had. oh–and he has beautiful and kind eyes too!
i just love the images and the memories of our time together.
next post will have pics of my instructors and classmate/new friend onay!
