A Workshop with Jennifer Hudson

When Jennifer Thoreson (née Hudson) announced her workshops this year, I jumped at the chance to go. Unfortunately I didn’t jump quickly enough, and I actually missed out on getting in to the original event. But at that moment, I think the stars were…

Hey +Les McKeown , maybe you've already heard about this... But in case you haven't, thought you might find it interesting :)
Jim Munro of Munro's Books in Victoria decided, at 85, that it was time for him to go. So he gave the business to four staff members.

SWAN LAKE: made during my shoot for Creative Live in March, making the online workshop 'Imaginative Fashion Photography' -- 3 days jam-packed talking about fashion, commercial and fine-art, and executing this final image in the ballroom of The Ruins, Seattle. Overflowing with presentations on art and business. I also put together a detailed, 80-minute video showing every step of the long journey to creating this final composite. The whole lot is available to you when you download the course HERE: bit.ly/1ieSM7P 

Photographer: Miss Aniela / Model: Taylor, Heffner Models / Stylist & dress: Leonid Gurevich.. / Jewellery pins: Remarkable Button / Lighting: Matt Lennard / Hair: Zoe Boysen / Makeup: Nikoma Souza / Production: Creative Live & Miss Aniela.

I never really wear them, but I love pretty dresses. A lot. I often encourage my clients to bring something extra special to wear for their studio sesh – the more over-the-top, the better. Even if you’re not the type to wear girlie dresses IRL, it is so…

September is one of my favourite months. Not just because it generally brings on the cooler weather (sweaters, scarves and redheadweather ftw!) but because it always feels like a great time to refresh, reboot, or restart, if you need to, ya know? I think…

Yes +Alexis McKeown, hits you on many levels, countless (cause I wasn't ) memories, emotions, and ideas flitted through me as I watched and listened. Speaking of ideas, to steal a Woody Allen line: "What I think here is you've got a really great idea that should be developed into a concept." Seriously, I thought about craftsmanship or craftswomanship, to be pc., among many other things, especially as I teach film. 😐

Hey +Conor McKeown - since we were just talking about this the other day...
A luxury home doesn’t always necessarily mean thousands of square footage, towering great rooms and gilded toilets. Take these homes for example: to begin building one of these epic houses, all you need is $2,000. That $2,000 will buy you a shipping container. What you do with that shipping container… well, that’s completely up to you. Some creative people have found a way to transform this rudimentary “room” with metal siding into luxury housing...

Story
Tagline
Photographer & lover of dance, art, books, skiing, good conversation and coffee.
Introduction
I've always said, when asked to examine my priorities, that one of the most important things in my life is the existence of positive, engaging, inspiring interaction with other people.  

My friends teased me for a long time about the fact that, while they all have really cool and adventurous hobbies like rock climbing, back-country skiing, marathon-running, downhill mountain biking, etc, etc, my hobby seemed to be drinking coffee.  It bugged me at first but then I got over it, 'cause it's true :)  Not so much the coffee part (although I do love my coffee) - but more the conversations that have always gone along with the coffee.  

I love nothing more than sitting down with someone intelligent and creative and seeing what comes up.

I think that's what I'm loving so far about G+...  it's like the on-line version of my "good conversation" hobby :P
