Minneapolis Portrait Photographer – Dave Jackson Workshop

A couple weeks ago, I was lucky enough to attend Dave Jackson’s “Breaking the Rules Workshop”.  This workshop flat out rocked.  If you are not familiar with Dave’s work, I suggest you go take a look. Dave is a genuine good guy who loves photography and loves helping others.  I was really impressed with his willingness to help.  I have always loved off camera lighting, this workshop helped me love it even more!  The workshop went all day long and was filled with awesome content.  Anyone looking to attend a genuinely great workshop, this is it!

Here are some of my favorite photos from the day.

I wanted to thank the models… Jaci, Will, and Hannah.
