Hi guys, I attended an amazing one-day photography workshop that was hosted by Jasin Boland (flew in from Australia)
and sponsored by BlackRapid in
Seattle, Washington.

We met at BlackRapid's HQ in Seattle, WA on a street with
a fun name, Aloha Street.  Love that!!!

Jasin Boland, is an Australian-based motion picture stills photogarpher who has worked on such films as The Matrix, Ghost Rider, Mission Impossible, and The Bourne Supremacy.  Jasin's work has been published in newspapers, magazines, billboards, and movie posters all around the world.
