Last week I had the most amazing experience attending the Insta-Inspire Retreat - a gathering of like-minded women who are just as crazy about this techno-art of photography as I am! This year the retreat was held in Salt Lake City, Utah - a far flung corner of the US that I was familiar with in name only. Our schedule was packed with meet-and-greet events, breakout sessions and (my favourite) shoot-alongs where we got to tag along with ladies with skills I only dream to posses one day!
The retreat was everything I hoped for and more! Finding my tribe, traipsing around the city, camera in tow, taking it all in!
I got to experience the stunningly raw beauty of the salt flats as the sun slipped under the grey-blue horizon of mountain tips.
I climbed the Ensign trail to capture an eagle's eye view of the beautiful capitol building as dusk set in.
And I got to take in the glorious majestic beauty of the famous Mormon Temple, literally and figuratively at the heart of this captivating city.
I knew I would meet amazing people and learn some exciting new photography techniques but I wasn't expecting to be swept away by the beauty of this city!
Looking forward to where next year's retreat may take me!
