What initially drew me to photography was street photography and people. I found that when I travelled to a new and far away land I felt invisible and everything and everyone in front of me was fascinating! Every twist and turn on the street was exciting and I loved looking at my new environment differently. Since taking up photography professionally I have found that I have done less “wandering” with my camera when out and about. Thankfully, last weekend changed all that! I went along to two fabulous classes with the Digital Photography Academy here in LA – the first was with Ron in the middle of Hollywood at the Grauman’s Chinese theatre, and the second class was with Hans at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown LA. I have always loved this Frank Gehry building: its texture, shapes and reflections and the way the light falls on each and every panel that make up the whole make this is a dream structure to photograph. Experiencing these two different teachers and being around their students was really inspiring and uplifting and reignited my interest in street photography and architecture. I am hoping to join the team of teachers at DPA and look forward to meeting the students. It is by teaching that we learn the most, and sharing my knowledge with others that gives me the greatest reward.
