Photos from “Shoot with Beckstead” Wedding Photography Workshop in Windsor. *****

Well, it’s taken awhile but Ive finally got some really awesome pics up from the Shoot with Beckstead seminar at the end of August.  All I can say is that it was a sweet, sweet experience to shoot with this world famous wedding photo master!  And the energy he put forth was unbelievable :)  Three full days packed with “how to” business savvy, photo shoots, group constructive critical analysis and best of all the encouragement to get out of our comfy box.”   The Beckstead “freestyle” way of shooting showed me a different way of looking at light and line and the best part is that he didn’t waste time setting up, he just walked into a setting, took a quick look see at where the light was coming from and shot, shot and shot some more.  For those who do not know of David Beckstead he is well known in the wedding fotog’s world and is sought out to shoot weddings worldwide for couples who really appreciate professional photography.  He often speaks at WPPI in Las Vegas and holds workshops everywhere a plane can fly him in. His style is a composite of journalistic, editorial, fine art  and fashion photography Britton Images Photography was honoured to host David Beckstead at the studio here in Windsor.  I got to meet some great fotogs who came from US and Canada so we got to share each others styles and visions.  I had a great time and he loved our dogs. Kat, Liz, Sasha and Atti acted as models and did a fabulous job.  My mom hunted down some gritty urban sites in Windsor and we spent nearly a full day shooting at the Art Gallery of Windsor.  David loved the light, lines and architecture.  We almost had to drag him out of there.  He took an amazing shot of Kat in the elevator.  There is absolutely no forbidden territory for David….in fact, if you say it can’t be done he will set out to prove you wrong.  I love his positive attitude, his energy and his love of photography as an art. Below, you will find some of my pics.  If you would like to see some of his work from this workshop just visit his David Beckstead Facebook fanpage.  Hope you enjoy and let me know what you think. The first shots were taken at the Art Gallery of Windsor.
