I’ve made up my mind about Photography Workshops

A couple of weeks ago I sent out an email to members of my email group (mainly those based in Europe) asking whether or not I should host a couple of Photography (1 or 2 Day) Workshops.

This was in response to the fact that I had ceased running workshops about 2 years ago but lately have been asked more and more if I’ll start again.

As much as I would have wanted to reply to everyone individually it was just impossible as I did get so many responses, so I thought that putting this video together would be the next best alternative.

So here is my response…

    Glyn,

    I have been following your videos for about 8 years. Not religiously, but steadily. I found you to be a real guy, and not so self-absorbed as some others. Your work leads me to believe that crafting good photos is a reasonable goal. Many photographers seem to believe that photography is only for those born with the creative magic, the rest of us should just stay out of the way.

    But tonight, I watched your “I’ve made up my mind about Photography workshops.” I am so impressed with your ethical position. I have been shooting since I was 14 but as a hobby, not for hire. For decades, I apologized to professional photographers for having a primary career. Today, I realize that if I want to spend all day on a shoot, and throw away every shot, no harm done. If I spend 8 hours retouching, and I am happy with the result, that’s enough for me. I saw a quote somewhere to the effect that professional photographers produce professional photos, but art comes from the amateurs.

    Your position on the number of photographers who start out with a budget prosumer camera, two lenses and a flash who market themselves as wedding photographers is spot on. Wedding photography is some of the highest pressure photography you can try. I have seen family and friends hire photographers whose entire body of deliverables would be in my throwaway pile. I cannot bring myself to make a promise like that knowing I may or may not be able to deliver.

    I appreciate your position on workshops and look forward to continuing to work on my art applying video tutelage from you and others. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
