Scott Robert and CM Leung China Workshop

My very.long.over.due blog post that I very much couldn't wait to share is finally here!! This past September I went on an amazing journey for 5 days that has left me with a life time of memories. It was definitely a miracle, but no accident that I was able to attend. I honestly don't know what to say or where to begin because there is way too much to say and nothing I say can do it justice. You just have to be there :) 

Scott Robert and CM Leung, amazing masters, showed me a whole new side of the art of photography. They opened up my eyes to so many more possibilities and expanded my vision beyond what I would have ever imagined. What I loved most about this workshop was working with other awesome photographers to implement each other's visions. I have to say holding lights has never been so much fun!!! 

Special thanks to Scott for all his time, effort, and energy that he puts into mentoring each one of us. I've learned so many things beyond photography. Scott is a living proof of his teaching and I can't think of anyone who can do what he does better. 

I can't forget my peers who have helped me through my journey. Without their help, I would not have been able to create these images. JeZa, Michelle Ng, David Lok, Riz Crescini, Darrell Lee, you guys amaze me in so many ways. Your vision, commitment, passion is beyond what I am used to. I received much needed mentoring from these people as well and the experience would not have been the same without them. 

The very first day when I felt like I was the worst photographer and knew nothing about what I was doing, David took time out to show me the basics of OCF, tips and tricks that gave me so much more confidence throughout the trip. Thank you Michelle for being such a great Roomie and sharing with me your experiences and giving me the encouragement that I much needed. I look forward to having more crazy times with you. I can't forget Jeremy and Zabrina, who poured their souls into planning this trip.  They put their passion on hold to make sure that we were getting the most out of everything. 

Even though I miss everyone and is so sad the week is over, I know we will have many more adventures together and I can't wait. Cheers to this crazy journey called photography that never ends!!!
