Today registration opens for the next Bret Cole Workshop! The workshop, which is a 3-day photography intensive course, is designed to jumpstart your career or give a veteran photographer a boost. During the workshop each attendee will part-take on 3 stylized photo shoots, lectures from some of the top names in the industry, portfolio reviews and time to co-mingle with like-minded creatives.

There has been so much excitement and feedback after our first workshop. After many location ideas, this next workshop will be taking place 2 1/2 hours north of San Francisco, in a town called Bodega Bay.

Below are some images I shot with Bret’s medium format film camera. You don’t have to be a film photographer to attend this workshop but I guarantee you’ll want to be after seeing Bret’s large body of stunning work and picking one up for yourself (there are spare mediums for you to try out, with sponsored film by Fuji and free developing/scanning from PhotoImpact). Personally, I felt as if I was in high school again falling in love with photography for the first time.

In December I signed a lease for this 1,600 square foot space that needed a lot of love. Five of the windows had been blown-out by Sandy and I’m pretty sure the place had never been cleaned (and it’s a 100 year old building).

All December was spent fixing up the space. My friends were suckered into helping paint, scrape, pull, nail, patch and build. I could not have done it without them. Kvon, Carly, Abby, Hannah, Jack, Peter, Kat, Paul, Meggie, Lydia, Jesse and Izzy….THANK YOU!

To all photographers in Fairfield and New Haven County, the space is available for rent.  All day rentals include up to 8 hours in the space, 2 paper sweeps, a dressing room, hair & make-up area, kitchenette and WiFi.  Lights and camera equipment are also available for an additional fee.  Email for more information.

The door is always open for visitors. If you’re in the Bridgeport area please come say hi! Address is given upon coffee order 😉

I had the pleasure of photographing Erik and Jacque’s wedding in Islamorada Florida in the Keys on May 11. I was also the chosen one to photograph Erik proposing to Jacque in Central Park the year before, as seen in the photo below. It was an exquisite affair filled with lots of laughs, gorgeous flowers and a couple who will un-doubtably be together ’till death do them part.’ Congratulations Erik & Jacque!
