Learning Photography {St Albert Newborn Photographer}

As I'm registering for yet another course, I can hardly believe that it's been five years since my very first photography class. I've taken courses through Grant MacEwan and through the U of A, but my favourite class by far was a full-weekend seminar and workshop offered by The Camera Store, and taught by Brad Wrobleski. Even though it's been three years since this class, I still stay in touch with several of the participants and instructors; they've been an incredible support system as I continue to grow and learn in this craft.

Brad was never afraid to get down and dirty! (As recently as Saturday, my friends were rolling their eyes at me as I lay in the dirt in a campground to get the angle - Brad is a terrible influence!)

It was sooo bright on this August afternoon in Calgary - we had to work to control the light!

Rene was an amazing model to work with, and she was a trooper in the brutal midday heat as we were blinding her with reflectors!

Iris was one of the participants and it's been great to continue to see her work over the last few years - She's an exceptional nature photographer and photography instructor.

Don is another participant that I've stayed in touch with - his food photography is impressive!
