after Chichon

Time to summarize. It was fifths workshop about pure marketing and psychology for photographers in terms of contact with Clients, ninth if counted with previous “Black is White” workshop editions. Sounds like voodoo. But rather this kind of magic it was really deep digging into the subject of what we do and what Client think. Luis Masyebra did great job about analyzing the Client steps into decision and whole tools’ part of workshop. Very scientific in term of professional approach. Great sum up with my psychology part and NLP approach. It’s twice great if you imagine that we did most difficult part – cutting/selecting/translating whole stuff during night before workshop of course after cervezas. And Ray Mass. It should be another story to be told about this man. He said almost everything I always wanted to say about WHY we shoot. WHY we should. For me – a wow and pure photographic addition to our stuff. And a large format group portrait of all – a great surprise and again – back to roots. It also brings me impression that on some level no matter what are the differences. There is knowledge we share. It’s amazing on every workshop I was doing: there is always something to learn yourself. From Luis, from Ray, from others, even we learn from mistakes. That’s life.

Below some memories on pics. All by Leica M9. All on 35mm. It was great to see you all and share some thoughts, hope it will bring you something important in your business. Masyebra, chapeau bas for fitting all together. You know you rule. Apart that you are my Metathron ­čÖé

ASPE 2011 Workshop in Spain

It was just a few days ago, a crazy rural workshop Aspe 2011 in Spain. 40 photographers from Spain, amazing, open minded, eager to hear and try something new. It was a pleasure to share with you experience of both – past work, thoughts and my actual ideas in Aspe. Thanks for nice words after both part of my talk, specially after the talk about my Leica experience. I hope it open your minds for something different and… It was a big challenge to be first wedding photojournalist from Poland speaking on Spanish land about own work, experience, thoughts. The words have been spoken. Take for you whatever you want, need. Be risky. Make it challenge for you.┬áThe change is now.

Thanks to Reporterstrap.com for providing gifts for workshopers and straps for tests. This is endless experience, support, digging into details, giving in result true evolution and in the end the product that saved my back thru two last seasons of weddings and pj’s work.

Chapeau bas to Maria and Roberto for bringing whole thing into real experience, the whole kitchen team keeping us alive with local taste and but also or most of all – to my five new friends – in passion to photography: Citlalli Rico (+Jimmy), Roberto Ramos (+Maria), Fran Cabades (+Susana) and Samo ‘big picture’ Rovan. We started something new and different as workshop experience. Keep it alive.

Special thanks for Luis Masyebra, my Metatron, a bridge between my speak and Spanish minds. Great translation job man, and there is something like ‘have we met before?’ in my mind. In touch bro! definitely in touch my friend.

The end for this ‘thanks’ list goes for Leica Polska for supporting my work, providing me lenses, cameras whenever I need to test, try or wonder. It’s great to have you, I really appreciate it.

A whole week in Spain from Barcelona to Alicante/Aspe then to Barcelona. Sun, clouds, rain, rainbow. Life surprices me every day. Makes a day challenge and new experience. Thanks for patience and support to my lovely wife Agnieszka and great friend Robert Korybut-Daszkiewicz. This trip couldn’t be possible without you both, folks.

I will show up some more, but for today just one – vestido,┬ánaranjas y┬ápuesta del sol. Leica M9 por supuesto ­čÖé
