January 2011 Newsletter

One of my favorite times of the year is the week in between Christmas and New Years. In the photography industry the busiest time of the year are the weeks leading up to Christmas. Once Christmas hits everything slows down. The week in between Christmas and New Years is like a vacation. The phone doesn’t ring as much at work, many people are out on vacation so there is no reason to even try to makeHorse in the snow calls, and typically for most businesses it is a short week anyway. I can show up a little later to work, and take an extra day off if I feel like it, spend some time playing in the snow, or just dream of places I’d like to go. Ahh the week in between.
In this newsletter I am publishing an article called “12 Locations of Light” Part One. This series of articles will eventually feature my 12 favorite locations to photograph around Lake Superior. This is a presentation that I gave for the Minnesota Nature Photography Club at their annual “Image of the Year” meeting Dec 15th.
“Photograph Newfoundland!” is our featured workshop this month.
Both of the Winter Wonderland workshops have filled. I have added a photo-shoot portion to the Fine Art Print workshop for those who are interested in some field time as well as computer lab time.
