Andrea and Matt modeled for us on Andrea’s birthday! What a super fun way to celebrate your birthday, right? These two are absolutely awesome together! Their interactions are so genuine and their relationship is pure. Matt adores Andrea. I mean, he subjected himself to two hours of photos in front of 14 photographers just to please his wife. The best part of photographing Andrea and Matt is how vibrant and energetic they are together. Every action, move and expression they make are done with extra oomph. I’m quite certain that’s how they are with everything they do in life! Thanks again for modeling for us. You two were awesomely perfect!
The photographers and I shot all around the Sentinel Peak Base Parking lot area. Although it was much warmer than I hoped, everyone survived the heat and we were able to create beautiful photos! I showed how I typically photograph one of my Attraction Sessions. Throughout the APW, the photographers had the opportunity to pose/shoot the couple, listen to how I interact/pose the couple and ask questions of why I do what I do. Afterwards, we headed over to Seis Kitchen for delicious Mexican food, horchata and to critique each other’s photos!
True confession: at every APW, I learn something new. This time, I learned that anticipating where the light will be allows you to shoot way more efficiently as opposed to starting/stopping multiple times!
Thank you to all of the participants who attended! I hope you were able to learn something and that this APW was helpful in your photography journey!

I absolutely love teaching. My background is in education and I am grateful that I have the opportunity to share my photography experience with photographers of all skill levels. The reason I started hosting free Aspiring Photographer Workshops back in 2008 was to give back to all the photographers who helped me get started as well as to help grow the photography community.
If you are interested in future FREE La Brisa APWs, please request to join my private group on facebook, HERE and send a FB message to me so that I can send you the rules of the group – www.facebook.com/christopherhsieh. APWs are Aspiring Photographer Workshops for photographers of any skill level/experience that I host as a way to give back to the photography community. Two rules of the group: 1) be kind. negative/unhelpful comments will be deleted. 2) be willing to share resources/experience/etc with everyone else!
Here are a few behind the scene candids of the photographers in action!
