While trying to find time to structure all the blogposts with last season’s weddings that are still missing here, and all the beautiful things happening this year, I thought of this:
I dislike the idea of you visiting my blog and not ever finding anything new to look at. I am trying not to stress about this, but I do worry.
I have been doing so many interesting things, meeting so many lovely people … but truth being told, after 2012 overload of editing hours and computer related work, I have been having troubles finding my way back to my keyboard. Anxiety, I suppose. I’ll struggle my way through it, but I would love for you to be able to see what I have been doing.
So here is an invitation for you.
On my Facebook Page you will find the most important announcements, travel schedules, sneak peeks from weddings, and some more. Just go and like it. all the updates will then come to you !
Now, on my Instagram flow, that’s where the goods are! every single day, I document what I do, the places I visit, the clients I meet…It’s my second brain. I record everything there, hopefully, in a sufficient artsy manner for you to find it pleasant to follow!
Just Follow me!
Among the tones of things and works I have to show, here comes a quick update.
I have, for a long time, wished for a way to get to study or assemble knowledge on old school photography. Not an easy thing to do, these days, especially living far away from the big city. A few years ago, I heard of a certain Mr. Canlas. I fellow photographer burning for film photography and teaching people all around the world in intense and wonderful workshops called FIND. Yes, it stands for “Film is not dead” – in this digital day and age.
I finally got the opportunity and booked myself for one of those in Norfolk, Uk and went there last June.
I was, of course, expecting my money worth of technical knowledge and had a zillions questions to ask. I did get what I expected. I did.
Lots of knowledge, lot’s of answers…
…but you know what? I got something money could never pay for.
I got a whole new view on my work, on myself as a person and as a photographer and how that influences the way I see things and interact. or don’t interact…
I discovered what I am aiming for in every frame I shoot. I discovered my message to the world. My mission. My statement.
I cried all the way home thinking of this, and felt so grateful to Jonathan Canlas for following his heart and putting so much of his soul in all that he does. His person and charisma creates these beautiful rings of loving energy around him, and one sees things a bit differently after 4 days with him. One sees things clearly, I should say. I guess it ‘s this way around people who found their call and love in life. They are contagious with enthusiasm and patience and love….they just are.
I also got to meet some beautiful colleagues and friends. Talented and with big hearts. Some of them, I still think of everyday, in gratitude for them taking the time in trying to know me better and sharing some special photographic moments with me.
My heart will always beat faster at the words FIND and Norfolk.
ALOHA! Jon, I hope you get as much back from us, as we get from you.
