I'm in a bit of disbelief to say that for our fifth year (where does the time go?!), we'll be hosting the Roots Workshop on Cape Cod again for a week in July.
Started as a simple idea to gather together a group of like-minded professional photographers passionate about the craft of photojournalism, the workshop has grown to embody an experience, a mid-season refresher and often a perspective shift, so desperately needed in our industry where we don't speak a lick about weddings or trends or business, but only about the core of who we are as visual artists striving to tell other people's stories through our images. It doesn't matter if you have the fanciest new camera on the market if you don't have the chops to back it up, folks. We all have room for improvement. Roots is a safe environment to do just that. And man, the growth that takes place is WOW inspiring and makes all the nutty logistics and legwork worth every ounce of effort.
I invite you to take a peek at a slideshow below put together by the brilliant Eric Laurits from this past July to give you a glimpse at a bit of what goes on. And then I urge you to run a quick report on Quickbooks to see where you spent your money last year. If you didn't spend at least one wedding's income on education, ask yourself why not. You and your clients deserve it. I challenge you to resolve to do so in 2012. We all guarantee it will forever change the way you think and see, see and think. Join us, won't you?
Registration is now open for the Roots Workshop 2012 class, July 22-26. Special guest speakers, a scholarship contest and a 5th anniversary assignments twist to be announced. I can't wait! Call or email us asap to reserve your seat!
