Capture Inspiration Photo Retreat Contest

Ever since having some really intimate and amazing experiences this year with other creatives where we could truly bond over a period of time and learn from each other, I wanted to replicate that situation in workshop form. I decided to start teaching photo retreats, where roughly 10 individuals could spend 2 1/2 days living […]

Twilight Gallery + creativeLIVE Winner(s)!

About a month ago I co-hosted a contest with two of my favorite places, Twilight Gallery, where my work was recently hanging, and creativeLIVE, where I recently taught a workshop. These elements combined to choose one featured artist whose work would hang in Twilight Gallery. The submissions were AMAZING. We had the hardest time…but also […]

Brooke Shaden + creativeLIVE = Happiest Time Ever!

Oh honestly now, how am I supposed to start writing about an experience as massive, life-changing, and jaw-dropping as creativeLIVE? I am truly stumped, as I have been for days, hence my putting off writing these words. I thought something brilliant would come to me, but since it hasn’t I decided to write from the […]

Mystery & Intrigue Contest Winners!

This contest was very difficult for me…So difficult that I am only now sharing the results 18 days past the deadline. I struggled a lot here, because of the variety of images submitted. There is a winner, but the rest are honorable mentions as I felt so incredibly strongly about so many of the images […]

August Contest Winners!

I had pretty much written down every single picture as a contender for winning the August contest once I had gotten through with the first page. To say judging was hard would be an understatement. I encourage anyone reading this to flick through the images submitted for the contest this past month. It was astonishing. […]

“Nature” Contest Winners!

About 20 minutes after beginning to judge this contest I already had one full page of links written down as my “short list”, which ended up being my absurdly long list. I was really touched by so many images in this contest, so I urge you – if you are looking for inspiration, search the […]

April Contest Winners! Theme: Emotion

Well, let’s get right down to business! The theme for the contest this month was “EMOTION”, and boy did that theme go over well. What I have concluded is that emotion is such a wonderful place to draw inspiration from, and there was no lack of it in this round of images submitted. Our guest […]

April Contest: Emotions

After a two month hiatus, I am bringing back my monthly contests…and I decided to do it with a bang! First off, I put the word out about potential contest themes and the highest voted theme was “EMOTIONS”. Now, as usual, this is extremely open-ended. The emotion the image portrays could be happy, sad, angry, […]
