The Wonder of Imagery
So far this year photographers have joined me on trips to Cuba, France, Eastern State Penitentiary, Fonthill Castle, Longwood Gardens, Graffiti Underground, and of course, my beautiful home state of Indiana. Our photography has included medieval castles, 500-year-old cathedrals in Cuba, graceful ballerina's, the sun-weather faces of old men, the strangely wonderful architecture of Fonthill Castle, and the bucolic farms of my Hoosier state. As a photographer, I'm awestruck by the endless variety of imagery laid out before us; a veritable smorgasbord of scenes and moods and details and expressions, all influenced by the light, what we bring emotionally to each moment, our ability to see, and our skill with the tools we use to make images. I find myself in a constant state of awe and gratitude for these opportunities. I look forward to more experiences at home and in distant lands, and I hope we can all make the images that satisfy our creative longing.

Below you'll find a number of great trips and learning opportunities coming up in 2016 and 2017. All tours and workshops are for both iPhone and traditional photographers; some I'm leading on my own, and some I'm partnering with remarkably talented photographers. Take a look and maybe we'll share some new photography experiences soon! Check it out and shoot me an email if you have any comments or questions.

South Coast of Maine, Sept 21-24, 2016
Marvelous east coast photographer, Betty Wiley, and I, hope you'll join us for this lighthouse-filled tour of the south coast of Maine. Oh, and did I mention rocky coastlines, lobster shacks, and quaint harbors with fishing boats? This kind of shooting doesn't get any better. Details and Registration.
Massachusetts North Shore, Sept 28 to Oct 1, 2016. Betty Wiley and I are teaming up for a tour that includes Rockport (home of the Motif #1) and Annisquam Lighthouse. This area boasts a beautiful rocky coastline, dotted with marshes and wetlands, beaches, and natural harbors. Details and Registration.

Cuba, Nov 1-9 and Nov 13-21, 2016
Cuba calls! Sally Meyer Wolf and I are returning in November for two tours that focus on Havana and Trinidad. Pick the date that fits your schedule and join us as we stay in Casas, the Cuban equivalent of our B&B. It's an intimate way to experience Cuban culture by staying with a family in a neighborhood. We'll also meet again with a local Cuban photographer who will take us to areas most tourists don't see. And we'll have the opportunity again on this trip to photograph beautiful dancers from the International Cuban Ballet.

Vegas, Baby! December 5-10, 2016
Imagine photographing the Eiffel Tower, Venice, New York City, and ancient Rome all within a short distance of your hotel, and then, shooting the natural beauty of areas outside the city! Join Betty Wiley – who lived in Vegas for many years and is intimately familiar with this area – and me for this great learning and shooting opportunity! This workshop is for all levels of photographers and iphoneographers. We'll cover camera settings, composition and post-processing, and I'll teach you how to use the iPhone to capture extraordinary images and process them into works of art. Details and Registration.
Fonthill Castle, Etc. (Dates Soon)
Over four days we visit Eastern State Penitentiary, Longwood Gardens, Fonthill Castle, and Graffiti Underground. Each location is extraordinary but Fonthill Castle is the Crown Jewel of this trip. Stepping into the Castle is like a visit to Hogwarts or The Shire! What makes Fonthill Castle such an overwhelmingly wonderful place to shoot? Maybe it's the 6 levels, 44 rooms, more than 200 windows, 18 fireplaces, and 10 bathrooms! Or the mix of Medieval, Gothic, and Byzantine architectural styles adorned with Mercer’s beautiful Moravian tilesl Does it matter?! Click here to be added to the notification list. This trip is limited to 9 participants.
