Evening with Jay Maisel and Gregory Heisler

Had an incredible time last night at Ironworks Studios with an event put on by Marc Koegel of Vancouver Photo Workshops featuring two highly acclaimed photographers Jay Maisel and Gregory Heisler. Both of them are in town to conduct workshops of their own but this was a lecture open to both the students and the public. Each of them presented some of their amazing photos and shared some of their insight about commercial work and personal work that they've done throughout the years. They were both incredibly funny and down to earth people with some truly inspiring photos and I am so glad that I went. Please check out their work when you have a chance. Here are some shots I took from the evening. The lighting was very dim so I used the trusty 50mm 1.8 and cranked the ISO all the way to 3200 for most of these.

Here is Marc introducing Gregory Heisler
