New York City

Traveling fuels my soul. A couple weeks ago I ventured up to the big apple for a fashion photography workshop with the amazing Lara Jade. I had the pleasure of visiting with a few friends, which always makes any trip better. Lara has such a calm persona and warm personality. I learned a lot in two days about the fashion world, and how to make your mark as a photographer. Of course everyone has a different journey, but it was really interesting to hear about how Lara has gown as an artist. The second day of the workshop I learned a lot about retouching from Pratik Naik. I also really enjoyed meeting other photographers and connecting with people from around the US. I wanted to share a few photos with you all from my iPhone below.
