Miami Photography Workshops are finally here. I have very exciting news, over the last year I have been working really hard on my new Miami Photography Workshops and tours.
7 years ago I hosted my first photography workshop in Miami. I remember clearly setting it up and posting it on my social media. It was a shoot with a model, I ended up selling it out, the attendees had a great time and it was loads of fun. I was hooked…
Fast forward a couple of years. I decided to do all types of Miami photography workshops and more often. I decided to do this for 2 reasons, number one because I really love teaching people, and number two because I never had this type of opportunity to learn.
Miami Photography Workshops
You see, back then workshops where really non-existent, at least affordable ones that anyone could attend. Everything I would ever find was incredibly expensive. Such as 12-day African excursions for loads of cash. Don’t get me wrong, I would love to go on one, but let’s face it, not a lot of people have that kind of cash or free time to attend one of this awesome workshops.
This is when the lightbulb went on and I decided to create 1-8 hour workshops that everyone could afford.
I ran all the workshops out of my own website (and still do). Once things started to get a bit crazy I decided to build a new site, add new times and dates and create an all around fun place for people to come learn, participate and take some incredible photos that when WalksOfMiami was born. .This is the beginning of something big. I want to keep adding tours and workshops and I will also be adding new hosts (aka teachers and tour guides) all hand-picked and overseen by me.
Thank you for being part of this journey and for all your continuous support. If you are from overseas and have been asking me about my dates for workshops, guess what, they are happening all the time. Just drop in by WalksOfMiami.com and book your tour. I will see you there…
Once a month we host a cool event we like to call Models & Bottles. We get a few models, and some booze, some cool studio lighting set ups and have a grand ol time. Its a good place to mingle, exchange cards and ideas and talk shop.
I will announce the next one on my photography workshops page.
The first of the year meet up was epic, tho the sunset was not epic it was really nice being out there hanging out with loads of photographers. Check out the video to see what went down.
Lets get the year started the right way and get together for the first sunset of 2017.
We will meet at Maurice Gibb Memorial Park in Miami Beach and shoot the sunset. There is plenty of parking.
The sunset is at 5:41PM so lets meet at 5 O’clock to get set up and chat.
This is completely FREE so bring your friends and family and just hang out. If you do not have a fancy camera, cell phones are ok. The sunsets are amazing here.
I shot these photos about 5 years ago at the Camelot Days here in Miami. Its actually a really cool medical festival where everyone is in costume and fully in character, not only that but pictures are welcome. The festival actually has a photography contest and I won it this year or the year before…. Good times at the Camelot Days.
One thing that I have learned about my workshops is how much I love to share what I have learned over the years with other people. I’m a big fan of workshops and have taken them with all kinds of phtographers. I believe this is the best way to learn, not only do you meet amzing people with your same interests but, you also get to pick their brain and learn a lot from them in a short amout of time.
Its not until I stared teaching that I realized teaching is just as much about learning than it is about teaching. When I am involved with this small gorups of photogrpahers we are able to share ideas and knoledge and it goes both ways. I am very greatful to be lucky enough to get this oportunity. What is also amazing is that I often get to see the same faces in the different workshops that I do.
Its alwyas great when people leave with a grin on their face. This moments are so special to me as a landscape photogrpaer and sharing it with others is something even more incredible. Thank you to everyone that comes out to my workshops and supports me throughout. Here is a photo from this weekends Sunrise Workshop. It has become very popular and very meaningful to me. Even if I’m not teaching you can find me here year round catching an amzing sunrise by my self.
