I’ve been thinking so much about what I will write in my blog post about this workshop but what I’ll probably do is I’ll just let my thoughts flow and I will type as fast as I can. 🙂
….I’m happy. I’m content. I’m full of energy to change things in my life and move forward. I’m ALL IN. I love this feeling! It’s amazing, enlightening, invigorating, freeing, and I want to remember it and come back to it if I ever feel down. I look at people around me in a different light now. I want to smile big and make it contagious! I am ME. Thank you, Dane. You and your words have touched my heart more than I thought and I needed that wake up call (aka kick in the butt) to start doing something about how I run my business.
…I could not possibly imagine anything like that and definitely not at a photography workshop. The things Dane touched upon were so deep, the questions he asked were so complex that it was impossible to answer them in 2 words and maybe hope he will move on to the next person. It did not work that way. I am so used to hind behind safe phrases, excuses, settings that when I was listening to other photographers reveal their fears and hopes and expectations I felt like I wanted to do the same – share, commit and open up! We were there FOR EACH OTHER, we all bonded so much during the 2 days and now I can’t wait for our first Calgary Fast Track meeting! I would love to see everyone’s progress and just be in such a wonderful group of people again. Love you guys!! It was awesome to share the laughs and the tears with you, together we can be so much stronger!
I’m happy to see this workshop to be such a success and feel grateful to everyone who attended it! Art and I could not have done it without you! Dane, you were more than we…oops I mean I expected! You are a wonderful person with such a good heart and it was such a pleasure to finally meet you! You have an extraordinary ability to talk, teach and listen and I still have so much to learn from you. I wish I could attend Escalate 2010 in person! Wishing you best of luck with it!!
Special thanks to Danna Bowes for offering her beautifil studio for this workshop! Danna, you’re amazing! And I still have your key, let’s get together!
Our technical guru Noel Dodd, don’t know what I’d do without you!!
Have you bought your copy of Fast Track Photographer by Dane? I sure hope so!!
David and Quin Cheung from DQ Studios spent some time with us as well! It was so great meeting them, they’re so much fun! :)) Hope we will get to hang out again..;))
We also did some shooting and beautiful Stephanie Leblond was my subject. She was so easy to photograph!
Ok here’s te photo I would like to tell you a bit more about. We got the most fantastic gift from DC Fast Trackers on the second day of the workshop – a very beautiful slideshow of their images from their workshop with Dane. Dane was very touched as well as everyone else. These guys were amazing! Feuza, thank you so much!!!!
I barely slept in these two days because so much was going on in my head, I could just feel new ideas growing and breaking through like young seeds trying to break trough the tough surface. I feel passionate about my photography and I feel that I am more equipped now with the tools necessary for me to succeed. And I have my wonderful friends who have my back and will support me all the way! FEO – For Each Other!
With love and peace,
