I generally have a lot to say…about EVERYTHING. But in this instance, I’m limiting myself to one. short. paragraph. Last November, I had the unbelievable privilege of attending Jose Villa’s workshop in Jalisco, Mexico. From the food, to the friendships formed, to the sheer volume of information and inspiration I experienced, this workshop has been the highlight of my photographic career. Of course, Jose and the rest of the team, as well as the staff at Hacienda el Carmen, really worked their rears off to ensure our experience was truly one of a kind. To photographers out there (both film and digital, novice and experienced) looking to hone your skills, network your face off, and be inspired to the moon and back, Jose’s workshop is THE best thing you can do for your business and your passion. Here are just a few photos from the various styled shoots we were so blessed to be a part of. As for the mariachi band, guacamole, bonfires, and margaritas, well you just had to be there!
