COMMUNITY OVER COMPETITION
shootout at the farmhouse
Davidsonville, Greater Annapolis area
Recently I hosted a shootout with two other photographers, Mina Habbi and Tamzin Smith at Visual Concepts Photography studio located in the Greater Annapolis area. We invited a makeup artist/hair stylist and 4 models. Our goal was to be creative and practice new ideas, learn from each other and reach deep down into our creative souls!! Four models, three photographers, all different looks, all different styles!! For me, it was an amazing experience because I learned to look at my outside portrait studio in a new light! There were areas where I had never thought to photograph, there were new poses that were contemporary and interesting but most of all, it was a genuine collaborative effort between the models and three photographers.
We started out on the southern front porch, made our way to the swing, the secret garden, the pond, the rustic shed and finally found ourselves at the barn photographing four beautiful women in gowns, all with their own unique gorgeous look.
At the end of the day, the 7 of us sat out on the front porch enjoying good food, drink and relaxing!! We started out as strangers and ended up as friends as the day started to unwind. It was an experience that I will always treasure as I cherish nothing more than having community over competition. We are all in it for passion. We all have our own talents. We all have so much to share and to learn. And the best part? Creating memories for people to last for generations to come!!!
Shootouts are a great way to collaborate, to share and to learn! I am really looking forward to the next one! If you are interested in participating, I would love to hear from you!
