Kathy and I have had the privilege and honor to be mentors at After Dark Cincinnati. After Dark is a unique concept in photography education focused on helping professional photographers improve there creative vision, photography skills and business practices in a very hands on way. We have the opportunity to share and learn from other professional photographers from all over the country. Many of the After Dark shoots and classes go well into the late night hours. I was out with a group of students and Mark Fitzgibbons who is a mentor from Minnesota at 3am shooting the woman at night below. Cincinnati was a near ghost town at 3 am as we were about to wrap up our session when a TV news truck pulled up and asked it they could interview us. We gladly gave an interview and even used his powerful TV lights with our flashes to make an image of our own.
Cincinnati was a wonderful experience and we are really looking forward to the next After Dark event that will be in Charlotte, North Carolina, September 26-28th. See the After Dark website to learn more.
