Getting feedback and finding quality, informed creative input for your photography can be tough. Photographer and film-maker, Miguel Concepcion, tells us about his recent session with Alfie.
“Ever since I noticed Alfie Goodrich’s photography, I’ve wanted to see how his creative mind and eye worked. When I finally reached out to him, it was as an informal consultation on an upcoming photo shoot.
“What I thought would be a straightforward feedback-focused 15-minute web conference chat became a free-flowing 90min-long lesson full of insight and actionable advice.
Live edits to your photos
“Not only did he provide a friendly environment to provide constructive feedback on my photos, he visualized that feedback in a real time Photoshop edit.
“Thanks to screen sharing, these experiential lessons were easier to absorb than any pre-recorded YouTube video.
Tap into years of experience
“While he easily answered all my questions related to photography fundamentals, Alfie was also very receptive to my thoughts on the emotional aspects of photography by sharing personal experiences and colorfully descriptive anecdotes.
“By the end I was left inspired and motivated, which makes Alfie Goodrich an ideal teacher in the field of photography.”
