I just got back home to Sweden after almost a week in France. I was honored to get invited by the French photo organization AFMI to have 3 workshop days outside Paris for 60 French professional photographers. What a journey it was! Here are some of the photos that I took during the part when I was photographing and learned the other photographers how I work during a shoot.
For sure it was not an easy task to inspire professional photographers. But when they organization invited me I just couldn't say no. It was a lot of pressure, but I'm thrilled, proud and happy that I made it! Each day I had 20 photographers to teach. We started the days with lectures and mixed them with shooting models and I also showed how I edit my photos. It's a very weird feeling to see other photographers taking notes while I was speaking and photographing what I did. It feels that I have grown very much during these days and I'm thankful for the new friends I made.

Finally, thanks to all the photographers who attended to my workshop! Also thanks to Katarina who was my translator. It was a great experience for me and I hope that you found some new inspiration at my class.
