photographer + photographer
[Chelsea Call + me]
There is something about being in the presence of another photographer. Or ten. I spent one of my mornings at Wanderlust in a photography workshop. A group of us woke up early that morning and trekked up to a field of Aspen trees in the middle of the slopes of Snowmass. Just ten strangers with ten cameras.
Now, I don’t consider myself a photographer. I have never taken a photography class. I have never read the entire manual for my camera. I probably can’t even explain what ISO means. But I love being behind the lens. It allows me to see the world in a different way. The way that I wish it looked all the time. Behind the lens, I can take my time…I can look for beauty…and I can admire things.
Chelsea was one of the photographers in the workshop who volunteered for the rest of us to shoot. There were 9 other cameras clicking away but in that moment, I felt like it was just me and her. She had this air about her, and a calmness that seemed to make everything around her still. She was graceful and angelic and perfectly fluid in her own practice [and doing yoga on a slanted hill is NOT easy]. She was a pleasure to photograph that Saturday morning.
