Come join us starting October 25th to explore the magnificent Picos De Europa, its villages, autumnal forests and coastal scenery of northern Spain’s Costa Verde. There’s still time! This workshop will be an ideal opportunity to get out and photograph the last of fall in Europe, in what promises to be an adventure, an exploration, and a relaxing but incredibly enriching experience. Come walk, hike and photograph with us, and then dig deeper, and refine your vision with expert guidance in developing/processing your best images.

Or, if you’re ready to take your photography (and the adventure!) to the next level, this extended 14-day workshop is just the thing you’ve been looking for. I’ll be guest instructor for digital and everything Lightroom (but of course, you’re welcome to use any software you like; this workshop is about making GREAT images, not specific software.), while Martin and Geraldine will be your expert guides and photographic instructors.

Martin and Geraldine run the best-organized, and most hassle-free workshops I’ve ever been lucky enough to attend. Click here to check out the long list of fantastic workshops offered by Wild Photography Holidays.

For those of you in Colorado, we have two new workshops coming up this spring.

For the Lone Tree Photography Club Meetup Group, I’ll be doing my first ever Photoshop workshop Saturday, April 11. (For those of you who don’t know me, I’ve taught Photoshop since 1992… but this is my first Denver Photoshop workshop. :-) This workshop will be entitled Photoshop Fundamentals: Compositing Part 1, and will be all about getting started with selections, layers and masks.

This one will be fun! It’s only $39, and we’ll even provide coffee and bagels. :-) Click here for more info, and to register.

Salute at Sunrise

Then in May, I’ll be doing a quick presentation for the Denver Creative Cloud User Group entitled Getting Started With Lightroom. This one will only be one hour, but will be free, so register right away.

Got A Canon 5D MK3?

January 16, 2015

I have been a big fan of Really Right Stuff for many years, so I’m not selling this because I don’t think it’s a great accessory.
