I firmly believe in always sharpening ones skills, absorbing as much information as possible, and creating community rather than competition. Regardless of the Industry you’re in, evolving and placing yourself in an atmosphere of learning is always a good thing, and it’s something I strive to do at least once a year in order to invest in my business and creative growth. This year, I chose to attend a film workshop by Kurt Boomer, whom I’ve long since admired & respected, to broaden my knowledge of the medium.
It was truly an uplifting experience shooting at Sunstone Winery, being around other creatives and meeting some of my Industry faves; Joy Proctor Designs, Amy Osaba, Shop Gossamer, & Jess Wilcox, to mention a few. The images you see below were shot with several film stocks (mentioned in the credits for reference). I loved them, and I hope you will too.
