September 2014 Newsletter
Welcome to another beautiful fall season! I hope you have all had a wonderful summer, and had a chance to photograph your favourite places. Even with the unsettled weather, there were many opportunities for dramatic images. The summer months were particularly suited for night photography - we saw some of the brightest moons of the year, and even the stormy weather was visually stunning. And yet, we're coming into one of my favourite times of the year, photographicly speaking - intense weather patterns, dramatic skies, frost, snow....you get the idea. Oh, and of course, skiing. Nothing to do with photography, but lots of fun.
Exciting news! I have been teaching a number of workshops in various locations over the summer, but will be expanding my own program this fall in a new studio space in downtown Fergus. I am sharing a large, bright studio with painter & good friend Meredith Blackmore and will be offering new classes in the coming months. The location is ideal - on the corner of St. David & St. Patrick St., within walking distance for many of you, and with plenty of parking for those from farther away.
I plan to continue with my popular "Basic Levels of Photography" and "Introduction to Photoshop" classes, but can now include many more topics for the intermediate to advanced photographer. Most of you know that I am an instructor for the Commercial Photography program at Conestoga College, and with this new space, I can offer similar classes that are aimed at the beginning professional or skilled amateur. I am also offering private & small group lessons - you can design your own wish list of topics you need help with - and after-school and PA Day programs for kids.
My website has been redesigned to include the complete workshop schedule, and the option of on-line registrations. If you're looking for a specific topic, let me know.
The schedule as it stands right now includes:

And if you have your own group or camera club who would like a workshop, let me know - I'm sure I can fit you in.
