Workshop: Photography Farm in Edinburgh, Scotland

Have you ever attended a photography workshop? They can certainly be mind blowing! I ventured over to Edinburgh, Scotland for my very first workshop called "Photography Farm”; also known as MECCA for wedding photographers. The workshop was held at The Biscuit Factory, which is a warehouse downtown. My experience at Photography Farm was not only inspirational and informative, but it was euphoric – on a serious “photo geek” level.  Along with the education came a slew of new friends and collegues - one of whose weddings I’ll be photographing next spring! Below are a few of my photos from the three different shoot sessions that I took with Neil Thomas Douglass, Caroline of The Twins, and Gabe McClintock.





Special thanks to the models, my “shoot session buddies”, the instructors, and Lisa Devlin at Photography Farm for makin’ it happen! Photo Farm will forever have a special place in my heart.

Well, it’s that time of year again.  Time for plywood boards, drills, screws, flashlights, batteries, candles, and rum; it’s Atlantic Hurricane Season.  This time frame somewhat coincides with the height of tourist and wedding season. Hurricane season typically starts June 1st and ends November 30th.  Bermuda lucked out back in August when she (yes, the island is female) dodged two bullets with Tropical Storm Fiona and Hurricane Gaston, which has been the strongest hurricane of the year thus far (knock on wood).  For a twenty-one square mile island – that sits 650 miles off the coast of North Carolina – it’s odd to think that most of the storms that make it to our side of the Atlantic usually form off the coast of Africa.

About a week ago, I heard the news that Hurricane Joaquin was sparing the East Coast - I was happy.  When I was told that the outer bands of the hurricane were going towards Bermuda - I was nervous.  When I learned that the hurricane was a Catagory 4 and heading towards Bermuda - I got on a plane.  If you've ever lived on an island, you may be familiar with the "pit" that forms in your stomach as you watch a hurricane unfold.
