I came across a couple of blog posts giving reviews on a certain photography workshop they had attended a few months back... what I read made me very angry. Angry at the way these students were treated and angry that these photographers who I once admired so much would do people this way. I was so disappointed in these photographers; I felt like I just found out I had been cheated on. I loved everything about them. I wanted to be just like them. And what really pisses me off, is that they are SO GOOD. I will still be in awe of their work but there is no way in hell I will be promoting them anymore through my facebook page or blog. This will be exactly what you call a love/hate relationship. But it just goes to show you can't always judge a book by it's cover and you most definitely need to do your research before investing so much money into something that is SUPPOSED to be a learning experience, not a degrading one.
So with all that being said I want to take this moment to tell you that no matter how big and famous I may OR may not get, I will NEVER treat you like this. EVER. I actually have plans of my own to teach a workshop this summer and I couldn't imagine acting this way, much less taking your money in the process. What a total disgrace.
And just so that everyone out there can be warned, because I too was seriously considering going to one of these workshops (they can forget it now) you can read the blog reviews on the workshop here and here.
