I'm on my way to the east coast to participate in a workshop offered by one of my friends and photography mentors. I'm excited to be going, in part because this is the first workshop I've attended for myself in almost two years!
For anyone learning photography – and regardless of our level we're all learning – two years is a long time to go without sharpening the saw, so to speak!
January is a good time of year to look ahead and select those workshops and experiences that will move us along whatever learning curve we're on with our photography. If we can find a way to do that with great people in a beautiful part of the world, well, that's even better!
This newsletter is dedicate to sharing the photo tours and workshops I'm offering in 2016.
Take a look to see if there is an opportunity here that will fit your budget, accommodate your schedule, help you grow as a photographer, and possibly even feed not only your mind but also your soul.
