Many people are perhaps familiar with Jeremy Cowart or at least his work. Ever hear of Help Portrait? That’s Jeremy! And many of his photos fo celebrities have perhaps graced your eyes and you don’t even know it. But recently on his blog, Jeremy offered a very heartfelt and real video about his work–and it a point where every photographer reaches at some time during their career if not many. Our buddy Bill Wadman recently stated that he’s going through the same thing in On Taking Pictures. After looking at his own website, Cowart feels like he needs to step his game up. And to do that, he’s inviting people out to a special workshop that he is calling, “The Field Sessions.” The video shows Cowart talking about how he would be next to his favorite photographer in a heartbeat if they promised that they were about to create their best work ever. And Cowart is stating that he’s dedicating this workshop series to doing just that.
That’s quite a big feat Mr. Cowart! But if you’re already familiar with Jeremy’s idea and some of his processes, you’ll know that you’re bound to learn something. From what it sounds like, you won’t be sitting there lectured to all day. I worked with Jeremy a while ago on an article on how to get better colors from your images–and perhaps seeing his mysterious ways in person is a better way of learning how to become a better photographer yourself.
We can only wonder where he is pulling his inspiration from this time around.
