->> If I could I would go just to heckle Robert Seale and Rod Mar. Terrific line up of faculty members this year. Anyone who goes to this annual workshop will not be disappointed. John McDonough, the Terrill brothers, and more great speakers will inspire, educate, and entertain you.

Brett and his crew do a great job. Have fun everybody!

->> @Thomas (Your comment, Damn funny) they actually do.

As a past attendee of the workshop I can tell you its worth its weight in gold. The contacts you make, the opportunities to shoot new events and the one on one time you get with industry professionals and instructors can't be beat. I highly recommend attending the workshop.

->> Should be a great workshop this year. The classroom presentations on lighting, remotes and business practices are invaluable. It's money well spent.

My brother and I were students there about 15 years ago and we've been teaching there for about 12 years or so now. I learn a great deal every time I go and come away refreshed after looking at the instructor's and student's work. I know Rod Mar will be a big hit there this year. He is one of the most inspiring and engaging speakers that I have ever heard.

For more information about how valuable the workshop is, check out my brother's blog at

->> Wish I had time. I still have a credit on the books, don't I Brett?

It's a great workshop. I owe Robert Seale and Joey Terrill all the liquor they can drink. I left Colorado Spring inspired because of those two and remain so to this day.

Like Nina, my heart goes out to the residents. I saw where Garden of the Gods, a place I shot my first morning there - was on fire....

->> Thanks to Mark for his kind comments and to Brad, for his smartass comments haha.

I'm really honored to be part of this great faculty and looking forward to coming to the Workshop. I know this will be a great opportunity to learn from instructors and students both, and also to meet new people and reconnect with old friends.

Any photographer willing to take on the expense and time of improving themselves by learning from established pros is to be commended. I know from experience that whatever one puts into a workshop like this one they will get much, much more in return.

->> @Michael, yes sir, we do have a deposit still on the books for you, would love to see you in the future sometime. Glad your time was fruitful and we'll say hello to Robert and Joey for you. I spoke with some of our local contacts down there and the areas within Garden of the Gods where we normally shoot were spared from damage. It certainly got close by the firefighters tireless efforts paid off.

@Nina, ours the same, we watched carefully, though I think the local news coverage here in Colorado was a little more restrained than the national news which made it sound like downtown proper was alight. The loss of life and homes in the western foothills was tragic, but it sounds like life in Colorado Springs is returning to normal.

Very happy to hear that the Garden of the Gods was spared. Awesome place. Awesome program.

Really wish I could spare the time.... good luck to everyone that's going... make pretty pictures.
