Workshops: Learn, Connect & Enjoy

A year ago, Tim and I decided to invest a bit of money in order to attend The Roadtrip, a photography seminar led by Carmen & Ingo and Nadia Meli. From the several locations and guest speakers available, we chose to attend the one taking place in Zürich with Julia and Gil. This decision helped us dive deeper into the wedding industry here in Europe and gave us the opportunity to connect with so many brilliant photographers. This is also where we met Suk-Jae & Jae-In from WeddingPilots.

This past weekend, I had the priviledge of attending their workshop on wedding videography and just loved it! Workshops are such a great way to expand your knowledge and expand your horizons regarding how to work smarter and create even more beautiful images. One thing I believe it shouldn’t do is make you feel that you need to change your style and lead you to emulate the work of others, because you think that that way you will become more successful. It is so important to stay true to yourself and your vision.

I LOVE people! So the most fun for me is to connect with fellow creative entrepreneurs. I love to hear about what led them to pursue a creative path and to see their body of work. It’s inspiring! It is about a spirit of “community over competition”. Like Ben Sasso always says: “We are all in this together!” There is no need to feel threatened by one another – trust me, there is enough work to around…and plus, isn’t it lonely way at the top? I am pretty happy mingling here where the down-to-earth people are hanging out;)

I am extending an invitation to you to join in the fun! Regardless of where you are, you have the opportunity to connect with fellow creatives. And don’t hesitate to invest in improving your skills instead of staying stagnant…unlike school for some people, learning is fun when you are doing what you love <3

Have you ever participated in a workshop? Or even held a workshop? I would love to hear your thoughts…

“I LOVE people! So the most fun for me is to connect with fellow creative entrepreneurs. ” YES! This is an enormous part of how I conduct my business. We are in different industries but that love of connection and continued learning is universal. I, too, love people. I find workshops to be an excellent place to learn, re-connect with people and fire up more passion for what I do!
