The WORKSHOP : Sydney, Australia (Part 2)

I have a bittersweet sense of nostalgia writing this post. This officially concludes my adventures in Sydney, Australia. Like I mentioned last week, the Land Down Under will always hold a special place in my heart and the fact that I get the honor of working with 20 amazing photographers is the icing on an exceptionally sweet cake.

Being able to meet, interact, and mentor photographers is an unexpected bonus of pursuing my passion as a creative, but what I find most intriguing is how business owners can pursue their dreams and passions…and make money while doing so. I love pushing entrepreneurs to a place of uncomfortability, a state of hunger, and outlining the steps they need to take to be successful (however defined by them).

It's a two-way street, this business coach thing. I give my thoughts and instruction, they give me hope, joy, and a deep sense of fulfillment.

It was an exceptionally bright and hot day, so we worked hard to make our couple comfortable, as well as finding light we could shape to our liking…

I have to take a minute to thank our AMAZING sponsors who came on board to ensure theWORKSHOP was perfect…I'm completely blown away by their support! Many thanks to:
White House Custom Colour – for awesome prints, press printed cards and canvas prints.
Replichrome by Totally Rad – for creating the best Lightroom presets…ever.
Pixieset – for hosting my online galleries and providing a gorgeous + user friendly interface.
Blogstomp – for making image watermarking incredibly easy and my work identifiable when shared.
Albumesque – for designing gorgeous wedding albums for me…Amy's the best!
Photographer's Edit – for being an amazing outsourcing partner during these past crazy weeks and editing the photos just the way I like them.

Even in the blazing heat, Scott looked cool as a cucumber…and extra handsome along Double Bay!

As part of theWORKSHOP, I challenged photographers to be confident in their skills when it comes to shooting in the worst light. Our shoot was during the brightest, hottest, and sweatiest part of the day. Photographing at high noon is usually avoided at all costs, but I walked through techniques and approaches to use and make photos to be proud of.

Oh, Kate, you are simply stunning. Really.

This is my second favorite photo of the day…

…and here's the FIRST! What a fantastic, amazing, brilliant group of photographers…and they exuded fun and joy in unmeasurable ways!
