we are, once again, finding ourselves with the huge joy of inviting you, dear person, fellow photographer, artist, dreamer of dreams, to one of our most happy of all places – the Don’t Give up project —> a workshop and heart-quickening experience for photographers. The joy we feel is not simply that we get to live for a few days at 9000 feet with amazing views of Pike’s Peak. Nor is it simply that we get to feast on food made by an amazing chef. It isn’t even primarily about sipping hot coffee on the deck while listening to the wind whisper through the aspen trees. Or making friends with the llamas at the neighboring ranch. Or the colors of a colorado sunrise that you see each day. Or the crack of a wood fire.
It is more than that. Much more. It is in the chance to invite you, potential friend, to share in it all with us; to leave the daily grind, take a deep breath, gain inspiration, grow in your vision, and build a new community. It is being in a place with a house full of new friends – lifelong new friends. It is in the chance to know – and to be known. It is in the experience of sharing family meals with great food around one big table with like-minded photographers from around the world. And it is about the pursuit of making images that truly matter.
because it’s impossible to put words to an experience we ourselves and many of our now dear friends have called “life changing” we can only say this: it’s going to be wonderful, and you’ll just have to trust us on that one. and so with that, we invite you to come join the family…
