Over the last four days, I have been in southern and central California for some commercial shoots and I had the distinct pleasure of staying with my awesome friends, Natalie and Chris who I also consider family. Natalie was one of Brisa’s bridesmaids and Chris was one of my groomsmen. Chris is also the owner of www.graphictwist.com
and does all of the incredible design work for La Brisa Photography
! Here we are in their beautiful home with their canine children (from L-R: Riley, Charlie, Emma and Russ) and gorgeous fishes! Thank you again so much for hosting me this week! Great seeing you both!
As a photographer, sometime you need to work on things outside of your normal purview and this project is going to help us (and you) challenge, grow and creatively develop your photography as a whole. Weekly for the next year, we will be sharing our images with you here!
For those of you interested in participating, PLEASE join us! The more the merrier! You definitely do not need to be a professional photographer, this is something you can easily do with your point and shoot, cell phone, ipad2, etc. You can comment with a link to your image here on our blog or on our La Brisa fan page
or you can tag La Brisa Photography
in your image on your own FB page or use the hashtag #52WoA on twitter
that way we can share your efforts with everyone else! If you are interested in joining our La Brisa Aspiring Photographer Workshop
group on FB, please request to join as we will also be sharing our images there too.
