I can’t even tell you how excited I was to be able to go hang out with Jasmine Star who came all the way over from the USA, and a very cool group of photographers who came from NZ, Australia and even California for the Jasmine Star Workshop in Christchurch this week!
We came from all over the show to hear Jasmine speak on photography, branding, well… pretty much everything really. I got SO much out of it!
The morning was spent learning about branding, workflow and a bunch of life simplifying suggestions. Then in the afternoon we got to go out and do some shooting. But we had to go the long way:
Unfortunately somebody took an unattended box of scorched almonds in the courthouse a little too seriously, and there was a bomb scare that shut down several streets. That was Ok, made the day that bit more interesting!
We had some gorgeous models to work with. This is Leon and Anna, awesome, patient models! It must be so daunting for them to have a hoard of photographers surrounding them, just waiting for them to do something cute!
Katy and Brad…. amazingly cute.
These dresses were AMAZING! Louise Anderson, check her out, jawdroppingly good.
Jasmine dragging lovingly to show us how it’s done.
How could Katy and I walk past this guy without at least saying hi? Seems he’s the strong silent type.
There is so much I have taken away with me from my day with Jasmine and the other photographers. I’m so grateful that Jasmine took time to come over to humble little New Zealand to talk to us! Thanks so much to Fiona Anderson for organising it all. Seriously amazing.
