Doug Gordon is Hotter Than Nigel Barker

And that, my friends, is the truth.

Nigel is man model pretty. Doug is hotter because 1) he’s real, 2) he’s adorable, 3) he has a of humor to die for (that’s Mr. Hotness himself posing in the studio at the beginning), 4) he’s wonderfully kind, and 5) he’s super talented. You heard it here first. Amirite, ladies? Real trumps all.(Hoping his wife doesn’t come kick my butt for having a photo crush on him. Doug, please let her know it’s a sickness…I like creatives.)

(Don’t mind me, I’m just waiting for this to hit Google so Doug sees it… la la la la la la la…*bad whistling*…la la la la la)

And now we’re back.

WPPI was very good. I walked away feeling a new sense of excitement about photography as well as about myself. Some of the concepts that were discussed were things I already do, but to a level of which I never even imagined. And that’s the key right there: my imagination. I was a little frozen. The photographers who inspired me most basically lit a fire inside of me. That’s the point of the classes. The whole point of WPPI. So it was pretty damn wonderful to have that kick in the ass right when I needed it most.

In addition to some of the techniques I learned, I also got some much needed clarity on a personal project. I had no idea how far afield I was going. So, I’ll rework what I have and refine my methods.

I have so much more I’d like to add to this, but I’m back to wobbly neck and headaches. It’s time for meds and bed. I may not feel 100% great, but I know I’ll be dreaming of photography while I sleep. It’s happened every night this week and honestly, I can’t tell you the last time I dreamed of photography like this.

Kind of scary to think of me being that inspired, isn’t it?

Even scarier, is that I think I figured out how I can incorporate a lot of what I learned and apply it to concert photography, too…where I have no control over movement or light.

  1. That is SO cool! I knew you’d have a great time and possibly learn some neat stuff, but it sounds even better than I could have imagined!

    Sorry you have the wobbly neck. Not good. Feel better!! :hug:
