    Great to have a dedicated forum for these posts!

    I will be doing a three-day workshop on children's photography and natural light portraiture March 21 - 23. The workshop will be in Hertfordshire at Fanham's Hall.

    I'm still in need of a few fun kids to help us out in practicing techniques for photographing children. The dates are March 21 and March 23 (afternoon), with 2 -3 subjects needed for each of those days. I'm looking for kids between the ages of 3 and 10; there are no other qualifications. Although I realize these are school days, I think it would be a fun experience for older kids, and it's always interesting to watch how various photographers docment your children. Ideally, I'd like to have a nice range of ages and personalities. Siblings are definitely welcome.

    As a thank-you, I'll provide a signed 8x10 print of each child, and you also might receive additional prints from students in the class. There are approximately fifteen students, so it should be a comfortable (read "non-intimidating") experience for all. Information about the workshops can be found at www.cheryljacobsportraits.com/UKworkshop.html
    If you are interested, please either PM me or e-mail me at cj@cheryljacobsportraits.com. I'd like to finalize all arrangements as soon as possible.

    No, but it covers the cost of amphetamines and caffeine for the adults so they can keep up. :wink:

    Cheryl, you can borrow my 2 kids any day! :D

    Please include return flights from West Australia for them and me as their supervisor of course (me). I couldn't bear to let you have the responsibility of keeping and eye on them as well as trying to work your magic. In return I'll take care of our own accommodation. :wink:

    No Soeren, you got the planet all upside down. Cheryl he means Down Under, in Australia!

    The British may have thought they were trying to remove us from the 'hub' of the earth, but as it turns out, we got the best spot!!!
    :D

    No Nicole, I mean Denmark. Remember you are now part of the Danish Kingdom :D
    I know it's to early to expect you to speak and write in Danish but in another two weeks......
    I would really love to participate in your Portraits workshop Cheryl so if you ever make one in Denmark PM me.
    Regards Søren

    Just back from the UK workshop, and it was an incredible experience. I definitely see more workshops in the future (currently looking into Prague, Dublin, Scotland near Edinburgh, and several cities here in the US.) I know there are several from the workshop who check in on APUG from time to time, so for anyone reading -- thanks for an inspiring and memorable three days!
