Ok, so I’ve been around in this business for awhile and am a bit jaded. Work is exciting, but the whole scene is a bit over the top with blasts of excitement followed by the usual work that fills the in-between. My excitement comes from sharing times with others, including some of my best friends in the business. After all, we’re all in this because of the sheer wonder and love of what we do. Alone, it can become mundane like anything, but when we get together… it can be dangerous. When you’re in the company of people who have your same interests and passions, those times can explode into life experience that will never be forgotten.
One such occurrence recently happened on the Iceland: Summit 2017 workshop and excursion I led along with my good friend and photographer extraordinaire, Kerik Kouklis. Top it off with another good friend, Canadian artist, Jennifer Crane from Halifax via University of Saskatoon. Then toss in Kerik Kouklis’ daughter, Sarah Kouklis a fine artist in her own right and knower of all things Lightroom and it was a team that simply has to get back together to do it all again in 2018.
