Davis Love Story Workshop, Part 1

I'm taking a few days away this week to attend a workshop in Lemont, IL, with celebrity photographer Bob Davis and his wife Dawn. Bob was long-time photojournalist with the Chicago Sun-Times and started into wedding photography several years ago. He's done work with Oprah, photographed Eva Longoria and Tony Parker's wedding, and just returned from Venice, Italy, from shooting Salma Hayek's wedding (where guests included Bono, former president of France Jacques Chirac, and actors Woody Harrelson, Ashley Judd, and Edward Norton).

So I'm in the Chicago-area this week with a dozen other photographers to learn from Bob and Dawn as well as from one another. We had a fun "meet and greet" at the Davis' home on Monday night then spent yesterday learning about lighting techniques and working with some great models as well as a classic Caddy convertible. Here are a few images from yesterday.
