Please allow me to transport you to one of my recent wedding photography workshops in beautiful Cozumel Island in Mexico. If you have never been to Cozumel then you better pack your bags and go! Seriously it’s just that wonderful.
However my story is not about the crystal clear waters of the island, not about the beautiful beaches, and not about great food and beautiful weather (did I miss anything else?).
My story is how I became a morph. Yes you read it correctly. It is about how a photography teacher became a morph and how beneficial it could be to your everyday photography business.
Everything started when a photographer named Bojan came to me and introduced himself during my workshops in Greece. Little did I know, this young man was supervising a multi-million dollar photography department situated in the open sea spanning 22 huge cruise ships. They would sail all over the world and carry an average of 4000 people per ship. Frankly, I don’t know any photography studio/department could deal with this kind of volume of work. And I can only imagine the amount of stress and business decisions Bojan has to deal with at every second of the day. Bojan, I tip my hat off to you!
To make a long story short, this brilliant young man organized a workshop for his top 12 photographers from across the planet and brought them to Cozumel Island in Mexico.
So, do you want to know how a big corporation like Carnival Cruise Line educates their employees?
They rented huge multi-million dollar villa where we all stayed. We had our own private access to the beach. We had 2 chefs that cooked every single one of our meals, served it to us, and cleaned up after us. We had a lot of beer, I mean a lot!! We had unlimited amount of wine and everything else you can think of.
But we worked a lot!! After my 7-8 hour presentation Bojan continued with his, for another 2-3 hours. After that we partied and drunk like crazy by the pool. And here is where my morph story comes into the play. This is me in a morph suit. Everyone had his own outfit. After a certain level of alcohol you just put it on and party like crazy
Take a look at the short video below and you will understand.
The next morning at 8 a.m. it was mandatory to get up and do some physical activity with Bojan, who by the way is in great shape and made us sweat like crazy during a 40 minute intensive workout. After that we swam for about 20 minutes in the ocean, while the chefs prepped up a delicious breakfast for us.
Sounds like fun?
I’m thinking of organizing something like this, it will be the ultimate photography boot camp. Four to five days of intensive training and partying. There will be mandatory exercising, swimming or running, a lot of studying during the day, and partying at night. If time permits, maybe some diving, fishing, sailing, and or seafood tasting. 12 people max? Let me know your thoughts.
I would like to give a special thank you to Bojan for this amazing opportunity. I would love to say thank you to the entire team that attended my program for 2 days and made me re-evaluate the meaning of what hard work is all about. And if you ever decide to get married on the ship you can trust them, they are pros just like those of us who prefer to make a living on dry land.
This guy lived on the property. I think he was the owner of the place. He was worshiping the sun the entire week!
