June 2014

News and Updates
Not much of an update at all really – more just an announcement of some venues and summer dates where my images may be purchased (yes, the first one has already happened).
Of course there will be a few photographs in this entry as well. But not all chickens.

I am going to be presenting a three-hour workshop on HDR (high dynamic range) photography. Other workshops there will include a very informative three hours on panoramic photography presented by Stephen Gilligan. This one should be packed with great tips and ideas! Book early.

 Durham College
This fall will mark my tenth year teaching at Durham College. I look forward to meeting my first year students who I know will be anxious to learn everything they can about photography, image editing andthe appropriate use of social media with their phones and laptops! Think I can do it? I dunno either.

Other Projects
I have been fortunate to land a few contract photographic jobs. This work helps pay bills. There are a couple more projects on the horizon with more forthcoming.
Artistically, I intend to take on new and challenging projects…more on this later.
