Summit Lighting Workshop: Day 3

Day 3 was the hardest one yet, mostly because I knew that this would be the last day I’d get to hang out with some of the most inspiring people. It ended on such a great note as well. 

For day 3 my group was with Joey Terrill, an amazing photographer out in LA who knows no limits when it comes to taking a great portrait. I was probably most nervous to work with Joey because I have known him since I first attended the Sports Photography Workshop with Summit. Joey has always been someone that I greatly look up to. His work ethic is incomparable, but he also knows the value of having a quality life. He has given me great advice about photography and the world around it. Because of all this, I was very nervous because I wanted to show my best self. 

While all of lighting is out of my element, taking bridal photos is truly on the edge for me. I love sports and action and letting moments unfold before me so making portraits happen was always a struggle. 

One great thing about working with Joey is that he’s honest with you. Tells you when you need to slow down, think about it or not think about it. He makes you plan for what you want to happen. I’m so glad he did because from that came some truly unique shots. Obviously, I’m not your typical bridal photographer so mine were much more creative than they probably should have been, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much fun I had. 

Thank you Joey for being such a great teacher. I look forward to learning more from you in the future. 

These are three of my favorites. More behind the scenes photos coming soon.
