Today, the sun is shining after it snowed last night (ahhh, Portland….) and I had a wonderful dream.
I dreamed of a photography workshop weekend. We were in a beautiful hilly area with sunshine and green grass and beautiful wild flowers. The lighting was amazing and the air smelled so perfect.
I remember climbing the stairs of this cabin and finding a beautiful open floor plan full of rustic wood planks and some beds done up with cozy looking quilts. I settle in and hear someone else come up the stairs.
It’s Jose Villa and I try my best not to freak out.
His work is so breathtaking and he is one of my inpirational photographers, who’s style has inspired my own. He has such a sense of light and beauty that I just love everything he does.
I dream of being able to style the way he arranges all the details for his weddings and everything else he shoots.
The dream continued on and contained a variety of hazy feeling moments of elation. I awoke inspired and riding this wave of excitement for the art I am able to create as well.
My office is filled with images that inspire me. I have framed printed products from WPPI 2011 I received in Jose Villa and Elizabeth Messina’s classes that inspire me daily.
What inspires you? Are you surrounded by it? Is it easily accessible? Does it get the attention that inspiration deserves?
Have *YOU* ever had a dream about a photographer? Please tell me I’m not the only one!
