Create images for an audience who loves your work, not for an audience who despises what you do.
The 2018 Alain Briot Alumni Rendez Vous will be announced today. Let me know if you are interested. Places are limited and given the level of interest it will fill up fast. This workshop is by reserved for Alumni and by invitation only. So to receive an invitation you need to email me at: email@example.com
An appreciative audience pushes you forward, gives you confidence and gives validity to your work.
A negative audience makes you feel worthless, saps your energy and makes you want to quit.
Natalie and I are impressed with the quality of the work students are posting on the Facebook Alain Briot Workshops Group and with the quality of the comments and the conversation. We want to thank you all for participating in this group.
If you have not joined the group yet you can do so now by clicking here.
I also want to take this opportunity to make a pre-announcement. We will be offering an Alumni Workshop next year, in the spring of 2018. It will be called The Alain Briot Workshop Alumni Rendez Vous. It will be open only to Alumni (previous workshop participants) and it will be by invitation only.
If you are interested in participating in this event let me know by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I will have a detailed description shortly.
Thank you :-)

New photographs are being added to the Online Portfolios Section, and specifically to the new Images Created in 2017 section. These consist of images created both in 2016 and in 2017 and published now. As is my habit I publish them under the heading of '2017 Photographs' because I go by the publication date, not the creation date.
The addition of these new photographs is an ongoing process. Expect to see new images coming up at irregular intervals over the next few days or weeks, as my schedule allows.
New Year resolution #2: collect art
I am always surprised at the number of fine art photographers who do not collect art. Art for me is a lifestyle. I love beautiful things and having beautiful things in my life is an essential aspect of who I am. As an artist I know that collecting art is indistinguishable from the act of creating art. Owning art by different artists in different mediums is inspirational. Their vision is expressed and shared in their work. To be able to see it everyday nourishes my soul. I encourage you to collect art, originals or reproductions depending on your budget. Being an artist is not just making art, it is also living with art. No one can create in a vacuum.

Here are our current workshop openings:

New year Resolution #1: Learn how to reach the next step with your photography
It's that time of year again! Over the next few weeks I will be featuring New Year Resolutions to help you reach the next step with your Fine Art Photography. Here is the first one:
The start of a new year is the time to start new resolutions. For photographers this means improving your photography or making your business more profitable if you are selling your images. Regardless of your goals or achievement level, it always means reaching the next step with your work because art is a journey and not a destination.
We all know that success requires efforts and that efforts equals results. The question is which efforts are you going to make this year, in 2017, in regards to reaching the next step with your work?
This can be both a difficult question and a
difficult decision to implement. Our workshops and mentoring programs are designed to help you reach your goals. Take a look at our current workshop openings and see which one best fits your need. We just announced the 2017 Zion Fine Art Photography Summit and the field workshops are starting to sell out. Don't delay if these have your name on it. The best time to make decisions is now.
January 1st, 2017
Natalie and I wish you a glorious Happy New Year! May the New Year bring you health, happiness, beautiful light, fantastic photography and be the best ever. May all your wishes come true.
Happy New Year to all of you from Natalie and I.
