Just an update to let you know I have a new workshop/lecture event on my 2008 schedule:

TheBetterPhoto 4th Annual Summit will be taking place in gorgeous Monterey, California the weekend of Oct 25th, 2008.


A one-day seminar (including second day field outings with
BetterPhoto instructors like myself on Sunday) will be packed with lectures, spending time with professional photographers, and just hangin’ out talking about photography and havin’ fun.  The price is fantastic and the company even better.

Here’s the 2008 Summit link (for more info, to sign up, etc):

It’s going to be great weekend spent in one of the most beautiful coastal areas in all the world!

(Post-blog note: I now teach online with Perfect Picture School of Photography and love it- come and take a course sometime at PPSOP.com)

Via magazine cover

Just wanted to share my Via magazine cover in their November/ December 2007 issue.  Via is the magazine for AAA (Automobile Association of America), one of the biggest travel magazines in the US (2-5 million circulation depending on the edition), but many aren’t as familiar with it since it’s not on newsstands.


I shot this image last September at dusk, using my medium format Fuji 680 III camera, at the Treebones Resort along the Big Sur coast (just north of the Hearst Castle by about 30 minutes).  These structures are called “Yurts” and are circular canvas tent-style cabins, rustic but very comfortable (with heaters, porches, windows and beds). I waited ’til after sunset when the ambient light of dusk balanced with the interior lights from the Yurts.  Using a wide-angle lens and a two-stop graduated neutral density filter, I set my f-stop to a small aperture around f/32 and clicked the shutter (probably around 2 to 4 seconds) using film- then created a high-resolution scan to turn it into a digital file.

The Treebones is a great place to get away from it all and watch Whales migrate up and down the California coast.  They also have offer wonderful dinner menu with great cooks.  Call 877-4-BIGSUR for reservations.
