This week’s Wordless Wednesday post for all of you pro photography dreamers, highlights some of my photography dream inspiration images from a 2007 National Geographic photo workshop in Italy.
It’s hard to believe it was 5 years ago this month when I traveled to Italy, a gift to myself for my 40th birthday, to shoot the Tuscan countryside with professional photographers, Joe McNally and Jerry Courvoisier.
Joe McNally is an American photographer who has been shooting for the National Geographic Society since 1987. From 1994 until 1998 Joe McNally was LIFE magazine’s staff photographer, the first one in 23 years. His most well known series is the “Faces of Ground Zero — Portraits of the Heroes of September 11th“, a collection of 246 giant Polaroid portraits shot in the Moby C Studio near Ground Zero in a three-week period shortly after 9/11.(Source: Wikipedia)
Jerry Courvoisier is a photographer, educator, digital artist, world class Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom specialist, and internationally recognized imaging technology consultant. He directed the digital program at Santa Fe Photographic Workshops for 14 years, building it into one of the most respected digital educational programs in the world. (Source: website bio)
