First of all, I’ve been so busy the last year that blogging has taken a back seat. In January I did a workshop was never announced on here. It was called The Pay-What-You-Want-Workshop. It has now come and gone, but I want to make sure it was documented here.
It was a huge success for all involved. The premise was simple, an educational day of photography and business knowledge where you paid what you wanted to attend. On top of that 25% of all the money went to the amazing non-profit Got Your Back Movement. Please read about what they do on the workshop page.
Long story short; the attendees paid what they wanted to come and in turn helped fund an education for kids in need in Haiti and Kenya.
The workshop was January 21 and 22 and both days sold out pretty quickly. It was such an honor to hear from some of the people who came that said they have always wanted to attend a workshop like this, but could never afford it. Some people could barely do the plane fare and hotel with not much left for the actual workshop. I was seriously humbled to be able to offer an education like this to so many.
