Moira and I have been talking about doing a workshop for years. It’s never really been a question of if, but more of a question of when and, more importantly, what.
In other words, we had to determine what the common thread has been throughout our 10+ years in this business. The “moral of the story,” if you will. This would become the overarching theme for the workshop and the impetus for all future teaching.
On a rainy April morning in Kaua’i, a light bulb went off in Moira’s head. She shouted to me from the other room: “Iconoclasm!” We’ve always been a bit disillusioned with the wedding industry and its apparent preference for trends and superficiality over unique photography and imagination. As a result, we try to be different and go against the status quo whenever possible. I knew immediately that we’d found our theme.
Seven months later, after hundreds of hours of course development, we finally turned our idea into a reality. Ten wonderful photographers/human beings from all over the country joined us in the hills above Breckenridge, Colorado, for the inaugural Iconoclasm Workshop.
Below is a selection of my favorite photos from the the two-day event. Most were taken by Bonnie Sizer, with additional images by Shannon Cain (including the featured image at the top of this page) and Frances Marron.
For those interested, we’ll be announcing the dates of our next workshop and opening up Early Bird Registration very soon. Head on over to our workshops page to stay in the loop. We hope to see at the next Iconoclasm Workshop!
