On Saturday I took part in an afternoon seminar on making a living with stock photography. It was led by a very talented local photography and designer, Lori Andrews. The seminar took place at Canon's Image Square, located centrally in downtown Calgary. It was an afternoon well spent.
I have a simple philosophy when it comes to seminars and workshops. If I come away with just one piece of knowledge or one idea, then it was totally worth my time and money. Well, I walked away several nuggets from the two-and-half hour session but the by far the biggest takeaway was a sack full of inspiration.
A few hours of my time and a few dollars out of my wallet in trade for a sack full of inspiration? You bet!
I'll take that trade anytime.
