Opportunity Knocks

You know those times in your life when you get an opportunity that you simply can not pass up? You know the kind of opportunity where regret would haunt you forever if you didn’t take it?

Well, an opportunity just like that popped up for me this week. I got an opportunity, whether by chance or sheer luck (I don’t know) to attend a photography retreat with one of the gurus of children and family portraiture (both in Australia and around the world), the one and only Miss Jinky, Barb Uil.

I’m totally beside myself with excitement. I simply can not wait until October when I pack my bags for the weekend and head to Canberra with 14 other photographers to learn from the best. Gosh, how’s a girl supposed to wait 3 months …I feel like a kid waiting eagerly for Santa to come down the chimney. I just can’t!

It’s not cheap and there’s so much more I could spend my money on – especially at the moment – but like I said before, regret would irk me for years to come I’m sure if I didn’t jump at the chance. Money simply can’t pay for an opportunity like this.

I’ve paid and got confirmation! Now to book some flights and I’m set.

Eeeekkk! I still can’t believe it.

Leanne Stamatellos - Wish i knew you were going. Have all the information for this class and still chatting with a friend about it. Pity it wasn’t here in Brisbane or Mt Tamborine!
