January 2014 Newsletter

What happened to our October, November and December newsletters?  We moved! I’ve spent the last 3 months packing, unpacking and re-arranging so I took a hiatus from the newsletter.  Now that I’m back I have lots of news from the photo world to share.  I’ve got two workshops coming up in June, that I’m excited to announce.

Bill Durrence and I will be doing another of our popular Atlanta Botanical Garden Workshops on June 28-29.You can read more about here.
I‘ll be doing a Mentor Trek on June 20-22, at Mono Lake and Bodie in California.  Both of these places are spectacular. More info here.

And now the links…….
