Farm Photo Work(play)shop 2016…

As photographers, we spend so much time working hard all by ourselves.

paigegreenFarmPhoto01162012-0466So I wanted to create a space where photographers can create, share, learn and play together.

And in 2013 we hosted our first Farm Photo Workshop.paigegreenFarmPhoto01162012-0160After two successful years of providing space for other people to play and learn,paigegreenFarmPhoto01162012-0307I realized that I wasn’t creating space for myself to play and learn as well, because I was too busy hosting.

This year I wanted to play and learn too.paigegreenFarmPhoto01162012-0287So I changed it up.

paigegreenFarmPhoto01162012-0415Instead of hosting a workshop… I hosted a playshop.

Instead of one person teaching: we were all teaching and we were all learning. paigegreenFarmPhoto01162012-0198It was tricky hosting and photographing, there are definitely things I would do better next year. paigegreenFarmPhoto01162012-0364But it was really fun.

And I am more inspired than ever to try new things… paigegreenFarmPhoto01162012-0407To collaborate…paigegreenFarmPhoto01162012-0359And to play.

I hope I always make time to play.paigegreenFarmPhoto01162012-0476
