Gonzo Trip: Vol. II

L1023340-1

L1060310

A while back, a couple of friends and I set out on our second Gonzo Trip. We headed towards the Great Sand Dunes early one morning before sunrise.

I got to thinking recently – it is very important to keep working on projects and most importantly, spend quality time with those you love and admire.

Time passes by quickly and before you know it – you are 40 years old. That is my case since I will turning the BIG 4 – 0 in December.

I’m not sure where time has gone, but I am certain that the remaining years will be full of love, travel and productivity.

Be sure to carve out time for those who are close to you.

Thanks to Allison for the wonderful image at sunset and to Robert for the great road shot. Trinite Jones – Image Craft

Jeff Cloutier Workshop

Godec’s Photo Supply is proud to announce an intensive two day workshop with photographic artist Jeff Cloutier. This is a great opportunity to work along side with Jeff Cloutier and several nude models.

The two day workshop will be based at Godec’s Photo Supply in Colorado Springs and at various off-site locations. Each participant is required to bring a printed portfolio to share with Cloutier in order to focus on what is needed to reach the next level.

This workshop will assist in helping what Cloutier calls “writers block.” With the primary goal of “seeing” and “thinking” differently.

All great photographers establish their visual signature that is recognizable to the viewer. This workshop will suggest ways to open the creative “writers block” and provide important concepts to advance.

Statement from Jeff Cloutier:

The uniqueness of an artistic visual signature has to be studied, executed and monitored during the creative process of carving out your own visual style. Through our perception of the world as an artist, we can learn to announce our set of motifs and themes that will be carried throughout our careers. How we identify and understand these motifs and themes is the difference.

This two day course will examine these concepts.

COST $395 + model fees

Open to all photographers, but must have understanding of their camera system      operation and function.

Coffee and Productivity

statue 029

Wake up. Drink coffee. Produce.

Each morning I wake up, I’m driven to be better than yesterday. Be more productive, challenge myself and reach for the next goal.

Grab a coffee in the morning and write down what you need to accomplish. Do this daily. Repeat.

It’s a wild world… grab life by the horns.

Jeff
