A few months back I decided to attend the Palm Springs Photo Festival again this year. Life had been a little harder than normal and I needed a way to recharge my creativity and get a little motivation. I noticed that one of my favorite and inspiring photographers would be teaching a workshop and I had to take it. It had been 10 years since I had worked for Stephen Wilkes, and getting to spend a few days with him was more than exactly what I needed. The festival in its entirety was perfect, inspiration is back to 100%.
