I am proud to present some of my fine art wedding photography and some of my published work.

Erich McVey Workshop

There are moments you remember all your life. (That's right. I borrowed that from Yentl) Elk was one of those moments. I had a wonderful experience at the workshop hosted by Erich and Amy McVey in Elk California. They left no stone unturned and each detail of the week was perfect. The dinners were fit for a king and the sessions were rich with the teaching and experience Erich has gained over the years. (I'll share some behind the scenes images soon.) 

Each shoot was inspired from ancient words I've listed below. I was able to find direction and inspiration for each shot as we discussed the meanings of these words during the workshop. Ginny Au along with her team styled each shoot to perfection and captured the beauty of these words along with the gorgeous surroundings of Elk California. These are just a few images from the workshop. I'm sure I'm the last in the class to post my images but it's better late than never!  

All images were captured with Kodak Portra 400, Tri-X 400,  and Fuji 400H with the Nikon FE, Mamiya RZ 67 and Pentax 645.
