The Making of: 'Angel of the Rivers' & 'Urban Flow'

Normally, when I'm putting one of my 'The Making of' together it's of one particular subject matter.  As you can see by the header image, this one is a bit unique!  That being said I had to include both because although they're different, the two shoots happened on the same night and within about 20 feet of each other :) 'Angel of the Rivers' was a concep[...]

2016 Personalized Group Workshops

I've had enough requests lately about next year's lineup of workshops that I thought I'd get this out early, in order to give people time to consider how they can make the new personalized group workshop format work for them.
