Eyes up, heart open
This September I dove back in to something I love second to photography: teaching photography! A long, long while back, I started teaching monthly workshops on a variety of topics ranging from the camera basics to lighting to posing to how to shoot details to the business of photography. There is so much to being a photographer. So much to even just doing this for fun, let alone as the main source of income for your family! There are so many ways to see, so many ways to interpret your subject and your idea and I just LOVE helping Read More
It feels weird to see how long of a hiatus I have take from teaching. After teaching for almost 7 years, every month straight! Especially when in the throes of teaching I am in my element- happy, alive, challenged, excited, electric, pumped, and just… at home. On some level my whole life I knew I wanted to teach, but never felt at home in a classroom. I hated the pressure of papers and tests and having to sit still! Although man I loved the smell of chalk on the chalk board! Except when it would squeak, then I didn’t enjoy Read More
This February was crazy. For so many reasons! That Blizzard. Man oh man was I bitter about this, but really only for the shoveling part, otherwise it was kinda pretty.
Aside from 36” of snow the next craziest part of my month was the shake up I got while attending the Inspire photography conference in Sturbridge. I am on the planning team, so nothing about this conference should have been much of a surprise, right. Like, I totally knew what we had planned! Because I helped planned much of it!
The internal shake up that followed- and Read More
My great friend and co-conspirator Candice of Jubilee Events and I hosted our Collaborate and Create 2010 workshop at Watch HIll’s opulent The Ocean House in late May … and it was was such an incredibly fun and amazing time!! This place is a MUST SEE! They were so on the ball that during their big opening weekend they already had a wedding there!! Can we say on top of their game much??
I am still recovering…! I have a mega blog post on this in the works, but even before I was able to unpack (which I hate Read More
I like to travel, I am not gonna lie. But I will be honest with you, I do not want to be a destination wedding photographer, and I am not ashamed to admit it! I love my third smallest state in the union here- CONNECTICUT!!!! like no other. With its crappy weather (right now anyway) and super small town appeal, I am in heaven every time I come home.
These next two months are going to be some of the craziest months- actually I am smack in the middle of crazy right now- but I ask you not Read More
This May 16-19 my good friend and very talented Event Planner Candice Dowling-Coppola of Jubilee Events and I will be teaming up to present: Collaborate and Create 2010– a photography and design event!!
To say I am excited is the understatement of the year!! Candice and I have been working together on editorial shoots pretty much every month this past year – in Connecticut to New Orleans and beyond and have some crazy ones in the planning stages that we can’t wait to share with everyone.
We get asked a lot how we put together Read More
This last week was the whirlwind to start the whirlwind of all whirlwinds for me… and the butterflies are still in my belly to prove it! So, to give you a little back ground: I was a part of one of the BEST photo retreats / conferences / seminars I have ever been a part of! BIG thanks to Matt and Enna Grazier for dreaming this up and then finding the means to make it happen!!
Inspire Boston 2010 was amazing. It was beyond amazing, to be perfectly honest. There were so many photographers new to the business and Read More
One of my goals for 2010 was to put myself out there more for teaching purposes- see what else I could tackle in addition to the monthly Ten Eyck Tuesdays. Well wouldn’t you know that one of the coolest new photography mini-conference retreats on the east coast- INSPIRE Boston 2010– put on by the Boston Photographers Guild and Lens Pro to Go- has asked me to be a part of it this year!
The best part?
I am going to be hosting a live shoot! While speaking! See… I can multi-task! Sometimes….
There are so many talented speakers Read More
