Photo Field Trip // El Capitan Canyon

I’m trying to find the words to describe Photo Field Trip. I still haven’t had much time to reflect on the whole experience, so my words are failing me as I type this.

It was so amazing to get to learn from some of my favorite photographers: Dan O’Day, Sean Flanigan, Max Wanger, Samm Blake, Benj Haisch (just to name a few!)…and it was even more amazing to do it surrounded by 300 other photographers. Though it rained most of the weekend, that didn’t stop me (or any of us) from taking in the beauty that surrounded us at El Capitan Canyon.

Being that this was their 1st Field Trip…and it was simultaneously my 1st “workshop” experience, I wasn’t sure what to expect. And even though I didn’t really have specific expectations, I feel as though my expectations were exceeded somehow. The photography community as a whole always inspires me, and being there, surrounded by so many eager, inspired, and friendly people just filled me up so much. It was a weekend full of learning, laughter, friendship, encouragement, inspiration…and the best “camp” food ever  😉

To Whitney, Justin & Jess…thank you so much for acting on a simple idea. You made such an impact on so many lives, and I can’t wait for FT2015!

Aaaaaaand…ME. I had to post this because I neverrrrrrr get selfies in focus on my dslr. I always see everyone getting awesome ones and for some reason I’m just terrible at it. Finally nailed one.
