This weekend I had the opportunity to be a part of a amazing staff of military staff and students with the DC Shootoff 2016 at the Navy League Building in Arlington, Va.
One-Hundred and seven students both online and in person attended this three day course where we listened to amazing people like Parker Gyokeres, Bennie Davis, the always inspirational Mary Calvert, Chip Maury, Jim Bryant, and Aaron Ansarov just to name a few.
The students were inspirational and eager to learn, and the competition was stiff. This years topic was FOUNDATION, and to be a part of this group, and mentor these military visual journalists from all branches of the service is truly a blessing.
Not only did we all grow together, we formed bonds that will be part of our lives. We have a new found love, friendship, and family.
If you ever get a chance to go to one of these workshops, I highly recommend it.
Feel free to follow them and their work.
