Jean-Pierre Uys Workshop

What a privilege to attend a 2 day wedding workshop hosted by the amazing Jean-Pierre Uys .   Lots of information was shared and we had lots of time putting these new ideas into practice, with great models, lighting, beautifull venue (Vrede en Lust) and stunning make-up.  

 Big thank you to Jean-Pierre for sharing so much and for giving me a new perspective on my photography journey.   Chloe, Candice and Cayla  thank you for braving the cold weather and being such great models, also Helga Strydom  for making them look amazing.

 Jean-Pierre posted a video of our 2 days on his blog, beautifully done by Andrew Alexander (see here).
