A little over a year ago, I headed out to the home of Amy Montgomery, one of Burlington’s seasoned photographers, to sit and chat with photographers experienced and new in a casual format discussing anything and everything related to this business of ours. I found myself inspired. Inspired to continue to share, inspired to look for learning opportunities and inspired to keep a good thing going.
For some time I’ve been considering offering something similar. An informal gathering of seasoned pros, established photographers and those new to the profession. An opportunity to gather and share and just generally meet with others I admire and some I have yet to meet. I just never felt I had the right space to do it. Until now. Along with a new commercial studio space, I finally have the opportunity to host photographers from around the GTA in just such a gathering. And so, here it is…
I propose that we should meet.
If you are a photographer interested in sharing, developing friendships and just generally de-stressing and learning in a supportive environment, please feel free to join me for a gathering in my new studio space located just off Guelph Line in Burlington ON this coming Wednesday the 29th of August between 9am and 1pm. We’ll have time to meet, chat and also sit down and generate some thought provoking discussions on the business of childhood photography all while mowing down on delicious treats and light refreshments. You’re also welcome to bring a dish for a potluck lunch between noon and one to cap off our time together. Morning snacks and drinks are on me.
So what’s the catch? Well. There are two I suppose. Firstly, no demos. Every question is fair game so long as it doesn’t require a demo and is focused on the business of photography. Secondly, seats will be limited. While I’m all for the more the merrier mentality, I’m also interested in facilitating a supportive learning environment and the time to connect with everyone present. So… the first 20 interested will gain seats. Please feel free to leave a reply in the comments section below if you are able to attend and I will be happy to forward along the studio address and a tidbit of additional info for the day of.
I look forward to the opportunity to meet you and discuss this passion of ours together.
11 seats have already been reserved leaving space for around 9 more.
And because I can’t post without a picture…

Well that happened fast! Within a half hour of this post, all the seats have now been claimed. Please do feel free to leave your comments below if you’d still like to attend. If there is room or if one of the currently signed up photographers can’t attend for some reason, I’ll make sure to let you know. Four of the currently confirmed photogs are looking for childcare so there may still be room for a few others.
