Just as lawyers have Continuing Legal Education requirements and doctors have Continuing Medical Education requirements, Certified Professional Photographers have continuing education requirements they must meet to keep their certifications valid.
A few weekends ago, I attended a lighting workshop given by John Gress at the fabulous Circa Life Images studio owned by Donnamarie Jones. I spent the day with about a dozen other photographers learning from John and had some really eye-opening moments.
These are some of my favorite images from the day. Incredible fitness model is Mr. Kyle Hall.
