September 2011 Newsletter

The summer was an active one for me. The gallery was busy all summer long; thanks to those of you who stopped in we enjoy your visits. The Newfoundland workshop was a blast and we discovered some new areas and I returned with some of the best images I have made in Newfoundland. We had great light and a wonderful group. As many of you may already know I have gone back to school. I am currently working on my Masters of Education through St. Scholastica College in Duluth Minnesota. The degree is entirely on-line and I will graduate in 2013 with a MEd and an emphasis in web-based instruction. School has been engaging, challenging, and exciting. I have learned a few new things–so I guess you can teach an old dog some new tricks…

I am pleased to announce an all new web site. I have had a web page for over 15 years and it seems like every three or four years I have completely redesigned it. Check it out:, in particular check out the new and expanded portfolio section.

I have written a short article about photographing the northern lights, and about the Photography Day at Living History Farms in Des Moines Iowa.

On September 24th from 3-5pm we open “One Special Place” at Waterfront Gallery. Sue, Val and I are very excited about this exhibit. We have brought together 22 of the top photographers who work around Lake Superior and asked them to submit one image of their favorite place on the lake. I have seen the images and they are great! The opening promises to be a festive affair–join us if you can. The exhibit runs Sept 24–Nov 5, 2011.

Stop by the gallery if you get the chance on your next trip up north.
