Scarlett Lillian Photo Journal // Workshop Review: A great week at the Dane Sanders Fast Track Photographers Workshop.
BlogMenu

Feb 1, 2010

A great week at the Dane Sanders Fast Track Photographers Workshop.

Back when I was making the big switch from video to photography, I scoured the internet for all I could find about how to gain more knowledge on starting a photography business. In the midst of that, I discovered a photographer in Southern California named Dane Sanders created little reality shows called "Simple Photo Minute" where he went in the homes and camera bags of other big name photographers. I watched so many of those episodes trying to soak up knowledge like a sponge.

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!

Thanks for posting! I'm attending his workshop in MD next week. I'm waffling between excited and terrified. You're post helped me settle on being excited for today!

Thanks for posting that wonderful group shot! What an amazing group of ladies (plus Dane of course). Your images from the shoot are amazing. I hope that some of your mad camera skills rub off on me during your workshop this weekend. Can't wait!!!

Love your description of how Dane approaches the workshop asking the tough questions and digging into the aspects of your business (and your life) in a way nobody else would. Looks and sounds like you guys had a great time and got a lot out of it.

i already posted on FB...but must confirm w/my colleagues that these shots are amazing. I too am overwhelmed with excitement and counting the days til FTP workshop comes here. Your work and passion and openness about your beliefs inspire me beyond measure (that's my favorite Jeremy Camp song btw). Have a great day.

tearing up here, I attended in NY and attending next week if weather permits, I think the water laptop incident is better than the big snow storm coming this weekend for D.C and some more on tuesday but as Dane states, train wreck or opportunity, let us continue to pray for Dane and all his awesome work in helping our community and congrats to you for being such a great host and for making it so far in so little time, you rock
