I loved my first workshop, with the talented, gentle, and warm Ed Peers last year. I was really keen to do another so I decided to organise one myself. I thought of the biggest name in wedding photography, and thought of Sam Hurd. When he agreed to come to New Zealand for a workshop, I was really excited! I was also looking forward to connecting with other photographers from around New Zealand and Australia. Sam turned out to be a very knowledgeable, innovative, articulate and intelligent photographer, and shot in totally unique ways that showed us more of a seizmic shift rather than a quiet evolution on how you can take photos. I’d really like to thank Sam and Nessa for taking the time to travel to New Zealand and hanging with us.
