A great week at the Dane Sanders Fast Track Photographers Workshop.
Three years later, I still love any opportunity I can to learn new ways of doing things to help me continue growing as a photographer and learn how to run my business more efficiently.
After hosting Dane at our Pictage User Group Meeting, and being featured on his new show at AskDane.com (still pinching myself about that one!), I got the opportunity to attend his Fast Track Photographer workshop and host it in my home. What a beautiful week it was soul searching, being inspired by the vulnerabilities of amazing women who came from many states, and making new friendships. Dane was like the college professor who asks those "tough" questions that you don't like to deal with on the surface. But Dane had a way of peeling back the layers our hearts to make every single workshop attendee cry by the end of it. He challenged each of us, in the midst of his own crisis with spilling water on his new laptop, to stop "trying" to do things and just "do" it.
To go along with the 2-day workshop, we had a fun photoshoot with a sweet couple, Amanda and Colton. Um, keep your open for Colton Craston. He is SOOOO going to be America's next idol. He sang to Amanda while we were taking their pictures, and I totally sobbed at how sweet the song was. I'm gonna pimp a shameless plug for him right here. Go become a fan of Colton's on his Facebook page!
