Seven Workshop NYC II

November 6, 2009

My recent 6 day trip to New York City wasn’t all fun and games. There was some business involved. The entire reason we (Lori and I) made the trek to New York was for the Mike Colon Seven Workshop. Ok, so maybe it was all fun and games. The workshop definitely exceeded my expectations for learning AND it was a lot of fun AND I met some great people! Just five minutes into the day I already had plans on how to improve my business. By the end of the day my hands were sore from writing and my brain overflowing with information. Besides some other great photographers who participated in the workshop we also had the pleasure of meeting photographer Steve Simon (a fellow Canadian) as he audited the workshop. His work is very inspiring and worth the time to check out.

The day ended at a great Italian Restaurant called Otto’s where a former workshopee served us amazing samples of Italian food ending in the best gelato I’ve ever had!

One thing I loved about being in NYC was taking my point and shoot and blending into the crowd. It’s so convenient to have it tucked away and capture the fun memories like this one of Lori, Mike Colon and I. I can’t say I’ve seen a point and shoot photo where I look good but it’s fun and I wanted to post it despite my rain soaked appearance. Lori and Mike look great though!

Here are a few workshopee’s and Mike in action. We started shooting on a rickety balcony off the bridal salon where the workshop took place. Here Mike is balancing on the even more rickety railing.  “Don’t look down!”

Our beautiful model showed off several designer dress’ in the wet streets of Manhattan. She not only braved the cold but also braved the gawking pedestrians.

Thanks Mike for sharing so openly and candidly about your experiences and your business! For a little more about Mike Colon check out his website Mike and his wife just recently added to their family of four another two babies (yes, twins)!
