I have been lucky enough to participate in many photo shoots over the years - both for magazines and with vendors who collaborated together to bring a concept to life. It really is a great way to meet people you haven't had the opportunity to work with before, to try an idea that you know a client will never let you do (although I firmly believe if you can show them, they can be open to it), try a wild color scheme that you have had in your head forever...you get the idea. I've sat with vendors, chatted on the phone, answered questions about how did we do that, why did you try this, did it work (not all ideas work, that is why this creative process is GREAT!).
Inspire. Collaborate. Achieve is a workshop that has been a work in progress for the last five years. We are bringing this to life in May, in Maine and plan to have a LOT of fun. Check out the website to get more details, and don't hesitate to email or call for more scoop.
I hope to see you there!
p.s. - nothing makes my heart sing more than hearing a new friend talk about how participating in something like this has been such a positive experience. Thanks Meg Simone, you are a true inspiration!
"I can speak from experience that Brea and Dawn are so open, genuine, sincere, nice and overall AMAZINGLY INSPIRATIONAL. I have learned a ton from them and have to credit recent press to their help and education.
If you have ever wanted to know more about "Inspiration" like shoots - this is a super cool, local workshop!" - Meg Simone
