The Evergreen School
I've just returned from the Evergreen School of Professional Photography, hosted by PPW at the Fort Worden facility in Port Townsend. (Slideshow). Our sensai for the week long event was Bry Cox. All I can say is WOW. An action packed week from the first session Sunday afternoon til the close Thursday morning. It was a week of learning photoshop, lightroom, posing, portraiture, off camera lighting, studio lighting and business practices. I had my best photoshop day during the school, which for me was worth the price of admission on its own.
Bry is a skilled photographer, a versed instructor and a very accomplished businessman. The class was small in size but large in stature and the group dynamic was off the charts. We socialaized each evening after class with bbq's and walk around photo shoots, and light painting sessions This raised the camaraderie level to great heights. The sunrise shoots were so much fun and help ease the brain drain from the classroom sessions. Aside from the rock hard mattress's the venue was great and the lunches were fabulous! We contributed to the local economy with a couple of outstanding dinners around Port Townsend.
All in all it was a well spent week, learning new skills and making new friends while getting to play with me camera on a daily basis. This school is not a bucket list item. Do it as soon as the next opportunity. Now back to reality-- damn that lawn grew while I was gone. ttfn paddy
