ACADIA NATIONAL PARK, ME (Sept 29 - Oct 3)
~ Location Workshop
me and my co-leader Silvia Gonzalez Roman on a terrific photographic
exploration of Acadia, one of our nation’s most rugged, scenic, diverse
and stunningly beautiful National Parks. We will gather early
each morning, (with Maine being the easternmost state in the
continental US, sunrise comes early) to photograph during the blue
(before sunrise) and golden (during sunrise) hours of light, and won’t
retire until after dusk, working tirelessly to capture the iconic scenes
the Park and surrounding area offer. If you want to experience Maine
photographically, this class will guide you on your journey.
Check your calendar and seriously consider joining us. I promise

Upcoming Exhibition at
MULTIPLE EXPOSURES GALLERY (Sept 2013)
in the process of putting together my next exhibit at Multiple
Exposures Gallery. I'm culling through thousands of images made as part
of my ongoing "Daily Journal" project which I began in 2008.
My plan is to include both framed photographs and handmade artist
books showcasing photographic themes I have re-visited as part of this
project over the last 5 years.
More information coming as the exhibit approaches.

Social Media: Embrace or Ignore
(from a recent Blog Post)
