This will be the only workshop we host for the remainder of 2008... Jesh de Rox's life (as an artform) on June 9-11.
"An intimate 3 day workshop with Jesh de Rox and gifted guest speaker Lena Hyde, limited to 14 participants.
Over the three days, we'll be exploring your ability to create meaningful work that is personally fulfilling to you and highly valued by your clients. Major themes will include the process of self discovery and expression, developing personal style, and powerfully connective client relationships.
Each day is an adventure of group experiments, live shoots, image critiques, post processing and one-on-one mentor sessions. We'll share with you not only our techniques, but the principles behind them and why they work, so you can apply them directly to your own unique circumstance and perspective, nurturing your growth as a successful artist and person."
Registration is now open and limited to 14 participants. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your space.
From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.
I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years. Although I majored in art and studied photography in college, my career started in marketing and advertising, from the client service end. Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
