Missouri Photo Workshop

The Missouri Photo Workshop in Clinton, Mo. was an incredible learning experience. I worked on the crew in the vortex (see video below). Although I was not shooting I was able to see how much planning, re-planning, commitment and soul it takes to tell a story. The last day the stories came alive when the community was invited to view all of the work in a print gallery.
