Parker Fitzgerald and Riley Messina from the Overgrowth project collaborated with Pic Time US and put on an Instagram contest to win a trip to Astoria, Oregon for an Overgrowth Workshop. .....AND I was the winner! THIS WAS EPIC for me! Not only do I NEVER travel, but I NEVER win anything! This was by far the BEST experience. Meeting Parker, Riley, and guest speak Ryan Muirhead was an honor. Surrounding yourself with like-minded creatives and incredible independent beautiful women as our models was heart warming and inspiring. These 3 women allowed strangers to photograph them how THEY saw the scene and they moulded to what was asked, but with never losing themselves. Learning their story, their strength, their beauty was inspiring. We ate dinners together, had in-depth conversations about life and art. We built a weekend community and soaked up all the goodness that was to be taught.
