Art and the Heart – A Photography workshop by a boy and a girl

In about 3 hours ill be getting on a plane headed for Melbourne in preparation for Art and the Heart – A photography workshop by Dan O’Day and Samm Blake which I am holding with my good friend, um… well.. Samm Blake. The idea came about when we were sipping sake in a cute little bar in Tokyo last year, we discussed (as you do) most of the worlds most pressing issues such as, tuck-shop arms, finding the perfect pair of jeans, 80′s love ballads, the karate kid and then of course our world that is photography.

We decided that together we could offer something special to other like minded photographers/creatives and business owners, so we thought lets give it a crack and the response had been nothing less than overwhelming.

This is us being happy

Since then, the Melbourne workshop has sold out and we will releasing another Australian date for later in the year. We will also be taking our workshop to New York in June (5 places left) and London in July (3 spots left) *there is another country on the cards and we will be announcing this in the next 2 weeks.

To register for New York or London head over the Art and The Heart website and flick us an email, we would love to hear from you. I am sooooo exctited for next week and what we have planned, i’m so excited to meet the crew coming along and share war stories while locked away in our creative little bubble (not gonna lie, i’m also pretty excited about the food).

Later this month I will be heading off to Cabo, Mexico to speak alongside some amazing talent at the WHAT IF conference. In addition to sipping tequila and working on my tan this event is scheduled to be nothing short than amazing. If you haven’t already done so you can register here.

What a start to the year, wish me luck and see soon!!

john warren - best of luck kids

coler - how about an online stream for all us folks up here in our igloos! or come to vancouver :) either way good luck amigo and safe travels.

Tatjana & Charles {Brooklyn NY}

A few months ago I spent some time in New York, I have so much to share to from my stay there and will share MUCH more in the next few weeks but for now, I would like you to meet Tatjana and Charles. They are dear friends of mine and it just so happens they are wedding photographers as well! If you would like to check out their work, click here.
