What I love about my workshops

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.

Bok Tower Lake Wales

I have heard about this place for years now, and I have always wanted to make it up here. Yes I said up here for 2 reasons, 1. it is north of Miami (about four hours) and 2. It is one of the highest points of peninsular Florida, estimated to be 295 feet above sea level, that’s really high for Florida :)

Bok Tower Gardens is an incredible place, as soon as you enter this place you feel like you are in a dream, in some sort of magical place. Let me tell you that you are. I started walking toward the tower and was immediately surrounded by greenery, massive trees and beautiful flowers. Something came over me and I felt this sense of piece, a very spiritual experience. It took a while to take it all in when all the sudden the music started. That’s right music coming from the tower, it was crazy (in a good way). The music coming from the tower is some sort of fairy-tale tune, and you feel like you are in one. The music plays every half hour and once you hear it for the first time, you are always waiting for it from that point on.

I’m really lucky this place is so close to home, it goes to show you that there are hidden treasures all over the place, you just have to go look for them. The Bok Tower is one of Florida’s hidden little secrets. If you want to experience it with me, I am doing 2 workshops there in June, click on this link for more details.

If you are not from around here and visit Florida some day, I highly suggest you come the the Bok Tower Gardens, it is a must see and you will be happy you did. Below are some photos of this magical place.
