Happy Birthday, oopoomoo!

This year marks oopoomoo’s second anniversary, and December 1 is two years since launch. Woot! We are fortunate enough to have lots of creatives who share their time on oopoomoo including Stephen, Catherine, Dave and John (watch for further info on their personal Projects coming soon).

The oopoomoo team

The creative team members who lend their talents to oopoomoo!

This past year has been busy and exciting:

  • oopoomoo hosted over 11 educational workshops, talks and free walks
  • we updated our website with a spiffy new look (thank you thank you thank you to our designer, Stephen)
  • we published 5 eBooks, including signing up new author/photographer Dave Brosha (watch for more from Dave soon, hint hint)
  • creativity continues to be very important on oopoomoo, so we introduced the concept of Projects where oopoomoo team members can create inspiring works to share with the world — just ’cause

And we’re looking forward to another wonderful year sharing the awesomeness that is photography!

Speaking of sharing, we’ve created a special group on facebook called oopoomoo Workshops. This group is open for anyone to join — you need not have attended a workshop before. We created this page as a forum for people to share photographs from oopoomoo workshops, ask questions about the workshops, or just questions in general about oopoomoo and what we do. Although we publish participant images from the workshops on the blog, we know that you can’t always get through all your shots by our publication deadline…the group gives you another chance to share your work down the road. We’ll be hanging out in the group too, but definitely pose your questions and share your images with members of the group for solid (and unbiased!) feedback.

So consider this an open invite to join the group and benefit from the experiences and knowledge of group members!

A toast: To oopoomoo!

Hey oopoomoo, you're pretty cute!

Cheers to oopoomoo!

    Let me add my congratulations on reaching the Terrible Twos. You have built a community based on your support and generosity towards others. If only more businesses would adopt a similar philosophy… Thank you Oopoomoo. I look forward to attending more of your workshops and events in the future.

    Congratulations! Still remember how you got me hooked 5 years ago on the winter tour, barely knowing how to switch on my camera, crawling on the frozen lake thinking the ice will break, climbing down slopes I usually wouldn’t unless someone threatened me with a gun, all just to make stunning images!

    Thanks for all the efforts you guys make to help other photographers to improve! You rock!

    Congrats guys on the first two years! I’m always inspired by your commitment to evaluating, changing, improving, and moving forward… The wheels are always turning! It’s been great to watch your business transform these last two years and I look froward to what’s coming. Keep up the great work! Seriously, you’re work IS great and simply can’t be found anywhere else.
