I got that little heart tug… you know the kind where you don’t really understand it but your soul is speaking to you… pulling you in a direction you’re not sure about? That’s what happened last year when I announced the Contest. I didn’t know why… I just wanted to send this gift out, hoping it would turn into something.
And what it turned into was Tracie, from Canada, making a HELL of a lot of sacrifices just to get down to Santa Barbara to come to the Workshop. Tracie arrived at the door, tired, listless, folded into herself and if I’m being honest, I thought she was going to tell me to F-off and then she was going to walk right back out the door. Tracie had gone through a lot her past couple years. And to me, it showed. I was terrified I could not impact this woman. I was so afraid she would leave regretful and in tears and that my little free seat would’ve actually COST her something.
But there was a bigger plan in place. What happened (after a lot of putting her head between her hands) was she started looking at me for more than 1 second at a time. Then she looked like she was processing. Then she took notes. Then she began to engage. She asked questions. She participated. She put her ego aside and practiced pushing herself while I supported her. THEN… she came alive. Her embers caught some air and she lit up. She took everything I’d taught her the previous day and that morning and she gained momentum. She SMILED. She took CHARGE. She stepped into her genius and she became a living example of why it’s so important to go after what you really want in life. She made me beyond proud. She lit ME up.
I want to give YOU that opportunity. If you’re a photographer who feels the pull… if you know that there’s something waiting for you at this Workshop…
