sean flanigan is a soulful (laughs easily), sincere (remains funny), motivated (claims to be lazy), and insanely talented (but trades-in arrogance for modesty) photographer. i’ve been hoping he would teach a workshop for years now… and the wait paid off. last week i got to join 16 super talented artists for a one day intensive flanishop-style learning experience. i feel more motivated, inspired, and happy about my work than i have in a long time. sean was an open book of information, sharing anything and everything we could ask of him in one day… and he covered a lot of ground. we delved into our motivations, fears, and goals for our work, walked through a shoot, and explored post-processing techniques. throughout the day i was able to form some new friendships, and left with a brain full of ideas and a boatload of inspiration. after you’ve thoroughly combed through sean’s blog, died and gone to heaven, come back for a little more inspiration from my fellow flanishoppers… there’s a limitless amount of talent here:

on top of all of that, we got to have the lovely miss julie harmsen (also an amazing photographer… check it out) and beau andy fitts (musician extraodinaire) as our models for the shooting portion of the day. here’s a few snaps…
