walk … smile … breathe … relax … take your time … have fun … SHOOT!

I learned a lot last weekend. A LOT. I did a one-on-one workshop with Rinzi Ruiz. I met Rinzi when he was assisting Eric Kim at a workshop held at Think Tank Gallery in Oct 2011. Then in 2012 I attended a workshop that Rinzi hosted along with Bellamy Hunt. I really have great feelings…
