The Workshop : Video


Every so often I meet people and I realize I’m the luckier half of the friendship union. You know, the person who clearly is more blessed by having the other person in their life. This happens more often than not because I have pretty epic friends, but when I met Matt&Katie, I knew from the outset I was in for good times.

We met in Australia at The Workshop. Katie asked if Matt could video the event and he’d put together some highlights for me. I was stoked, so Matt came along with with Canon 5DMII and filmed a bit of the day. Fast forward to today….ummm, I don’t think I realized Matt was a genius with his camera. And his eye. Matt and Katie are both amazing photographers, but they make an even more killer duo with their video skills. To see what I’m talking about, take a looksie…

So, yes, this just further proves I don’t deserve such amazing people in my life. At all. But I’m not complaining! I’ll just sit back and thank Matt&Katie for finding room in their hearts for little ‘ol me! If you’d like me at a future workshop, be sure to sign up for the announcement here!

    Jasmine, what a beautiful representation of you and your workshop. You’re right, you’re truely lucky to come into contact with such talented and caring people. However, it’s us that are also blessed to share a piece of the world with you (even if it’s from across the country). You’re a ray warm of sunshine and as many others, I can only hope to attend a workshop sooner than later. I have so many odd connections to you, it’s long overdue. Off to watch the video again — I LOVE IT!

    Awesome video! Seriously, it is my goal in life (okay, maybe an overexaggeration, but still…) to attend one of your workshops. My husband knows I have a photographer crush on you, and sometimes, I think it makes him jealous.

    Love the post – thank you!

    What an awesome video!!! I can’t wait to take one of your workshops!!! Can you please tell us though- how, how, how do you get such crisp and in focus motion shots?!?! There seemed to be a lot on the video where you had the couple walking or moving around- where are you focusing to get them both so clear? looooooove you J*!

    Hi there Jasmine, All I can say is… WOW!!! Such a really awesome video and glimpse into what you do and how you do it. I’d really love to see more of this kind of thing. Maybe you should think about doing a whole series through an online workshop for people like me here in Cape Town, South Africa, who can’t attend your workshops over there.
    Well done, keep them coming.

    Jasmine, right when I feel uninspired, burnt out, and discouraged, I think of your story and it keeps me going. Thanks for being so refreshing and real in an industry that can be tough and cutthroat at times. This video is awesome proof of that. Keep it up! =)

    Jasmine, from this less than 4 minute long video, I have learned oodles of knowledge – I only hope someday I can fly myself out to CA to actually take a workshop with you in person! Feel free to come to the East Coast and host one anytime 🙂 You have a wonderful ability to teach and inspire (again, this comes shining through in under 4 minutes of video) and you should be proud of what you are doing to help others in this industry! Bravo!

    February 20th, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    Jasmin, you are my rockstar.

    February 26th, 2010 at 8:06 am

    …And that is why I am a fan of your work and your blog. Your passion for photography is so admirable. You make it look so easy and so fun…or maybe it is because you love your job that much. I hope to be somebody just like you someday…and be the first woman to break into the wedding photography scene here in the Philippines.

    February 28th, 2010 at 12:51 am

    This is why I love you and your work! You are a breath of fresh air and you inspire me to want to keep doing what I love to do. I got a really bad email from another photographer and it made me want to stop taking pictures because of their attitude towards wanting to help others or because they think they are better then anyone else. I love helping others and thank you for being you!!!

  212. Andrea Husted

    February 28th, 2010 at 11:18 am

    What a fantastic video!! Now I want to be at one of your workshops even more than before – didn’t know that was possible! Looks like it was a great experience for everyone and Matt and Katie did a sweet job on this video. LOVE it!
