the mj 2-day workshop . boulder colorado

A couple years ago, when I started shooting weddings, I came across Melissa Jill’s blog and I loved everything about it. From her photographs, to her writing style, to the sheer volume of information that she freely shares with other photographers. It quickly became a goal of mine to attend one of her MJ 2-Day…

big sky photo summit . photographers retreat

I’m not really sure where to begin when describing this retreat I attended in Montana last week. When I look over my notes they only seem to scratch the surface of what I’ve learned. Dane Sanders was the first speaker of the three rockstar presenters (Tamara Lackey and Mike Colón being the other two) and,…

  • Tracy, I love how we all photographed the same subject but everyone’s photos are so different. I just LOVE your photos of that first little girl we photographed! You ROCK!ReplyCancel

    • Thanks Jackie! I love checking out everyone else’s photos too! I keep checking FB to see if anyone’s posted anything on it. :)ReplyCancel

  • Wow – looks like an awesome workshop! I’ve heard great things about Dane, so it’s good to hear that he really is that great in person. :-)ReplyCancel

    • I have to admit I have a bit of a crush on Dane now – in a totally platonic and non-stalker-ish way! :)ReplyCancel

  • Great post Tracy! We have so much in common in the challenges we face… I find myself comparing my progress in my studio (and in life for that matter) and totally forget that everyone’s life situation is different! Good job girl! And great pictures!ReplyCancel

    • Thanks Sam! I think that we don’t tend to realize how many people may be dealing with the same challenges or fears until we admit them out loud. And then it helps to know we’re not alone!ReplyCancel

  • Love love love!!! :) So glad you had a great time!! You are so amazing!ReplyCancel

Last week I was one of hundreds at the Colorado Convention Center to attend a seminar with Joe McNally on off-camera lighting techniques. Not only does Joe have a great sense of humor and ability to connect effortlessly with a large audience (at one point he mentioned the number “750” when referring to all of…

  • Love your work! I am more of an event and outdoor photographer but do have a studio in my home. With winter in New England fast approaching and wanting to keep my business going year round I am forced to become a studio person. My question is what do you use for equipment? Basics only please. And what camera are you shooting with? I use a D300 Nikon, but do not seem to have the same clarity you get?
