Portland Photography Workshop part 1

Josh began planning this project over a month ago with a friend of his. There is a whole culture of girls and women that dress up in what they refer to as "Lolita Fashion" From what I understand of it, it is a style of fashion that developed in Japan and has made its way into America. The dresses, jewelry and shoes are amazing! Very creative, one-of-a-kind pieces. All of the ladies looked great and posed for us for over 4 hours! We started at the Pittock Mansion and then walked around downtown until the sun went down.

There were 6 photographers all together and Josh was the mastermind behind the project. I can't believe the work we got out of the project! It was refreshing to photograph just for fun and have no pressure around the process. We hope to keep up this workshop and start planning new projects soon! If you are a photographer in or around Portland and you want to participate in the next workshop, contact us and we will keep you informed!

These are some of my photos (Maggie). We will post more later! Check back soon!

This is just the coolest thing I have ever heard of!!! I am so jealous, I would love it if they had something like this in DC.
I guess I might just have to make a trip out to the West Coast! ;D
