Joshua Tree family photos

I rarely post personal photos on my site, especially nudes of my wife, but I wanted to share this recent family trip to the desert. I was six or seven years old when I first visited this park. We were driving back to New York from LA in a tiny Toyota Corolla and stopped here to camp. The second time I came here I was on a rock climbing road trip with friends in college. If you’re planning a visit here, bring your camera and don’t miss the Fortynine Palms oasis hike.


San Diego wedding photography workshop

Later this summer Huy Nguyen and I will be teaching a wedding photography workshop together here in San Diego. Last year we did a similar workshop in Denver with a group of eight people and it was exactly how I would want a workshop to be if I was a student. With small, personal groups like this we can quickly, and sometimes emotionally, explore each and everyone’s weaknesses and fears. I’ve found that with ten or less people you can build a bond and level of trust that is both supportive and helpful when you’ve committed to improving your photography. There are so many workshops to choose from today. Many of them are one-day group shoots good for understanding one photographer’s approach but bad for expanding individually. I think putting the cameras down and putting what we do and how we do it under a microscope is a formula for big advances. So after many requests to do another workshop, we’re doing this two-day class again. Is this a good fit for you? The major themes of this class is wedding photojournalism, unconventional creativity and approaching each shoot fearlessly. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions. For more information please visit The Fearless Heart Workshop.

Brett was the photographer of my dreams. He was so supportive and truly a calming force during the hectic wedding day. There wasn’t a sign of worry or nerves on my face despite the crazy week I had because he is so incredibly good at working with his subjects.
