Widely considered a formidable creative force in photography in Denver, Photography G's owner Garrett Hacking carved out a valuable week of time for a very special opportunity to study with world renowned photographer Jerry Ghionis. A rare stop to teach wedding photography in Denver, Jerry commandeered a local studio for a full week to impart his knowledge of photography on a select few photographers who had traveled from as far away as Alaska and the Boston area. Ghionis shared aspects of his shooting skill set as well as tried and true business practices. Local modeling talent was brought in with which to demonstrate his shooting techniques as well as to allow the photographers to work with. More examples of Garrett's perspective with the talent can be seen below. That work was subsequently critiqued by the Australian photographer himself. "Jerry is widely regarded as one of the top five wedding and portrait photographers in the world" says Garrett Hacking, himself recognized among the favorite portrait photographers in Denver. "Learning in this business never stops. Especially with the advent of digital photography and the speed with which everything is moving. So I see no reason, if one can afford it, not to study with the very best. Usually that requires traveling to them as I did a few years ago to study with Denis Reggie, also regarded in the top five worldwide. Denis and Jerry have very different approaches, both producing results I consider to be exceptional. So it is nice to have worked with both and take from each, throw it in a blender with my sensibilities and keep moving forward with an ever developing skill set to bring to my clients."
