Two workshops, One Day

Yesterday was an interesting day for Creative Photo Workshops. Glynn and I decided we would run two workshops at the same time, with Natasha Humble and my wonderful son, Nathan as assistants. Natasha and Nathan have run workshops together while Glynn and I were overseas, and it seemed perfectly viable that we could run two workshops on the same day. Glynn and Nathan tutored our Understanding Your Camera workshop while Natasha and I looked after the Creative People Photography workshop. These two have been our most popular to date and we enjoy running them both very much.
Natasha was my model and co-tutor and the lovely young Sarah Hardy was the model for the Understanding Your Camera workshop. Running the two together worked very well and I don't think it will be the last time we will be doing that. One of the advantages I had was that Natasha is both model and tutor. Seeing as she was the primary focus for all those doing my People workshop, her tutor role was limited. After all, its hard to teach when you have ten or so people pointing a camera at you. However, she was able to drive home the points made in the workshop about the importance of directing the model, graciously and clearly and also posing with a priority of light. Being both photographer and workshop model, Natasha knows those things only too well.
Sarah is a beautiful young girl with the loveliest eyes, and a most beautiful demeanour. She photographs so beautifully and is so confident in front of a camera for one so young. I look forward to working with her again soon also.
Now, on to the next workshop..our Creative Wedding Photography workshop on April 13th...
