I have been remiss about making timely posts to my blog. I have dozens of reasons, but most are uninteresting. Therefore, here is a quick update of what's been going on and some information on upcoming workshops and photo shoots.
First, the La Jolla Cove workshop went well. We had enthusiastic students. Not as many as we had hoped. Several had to cancel because the original date was rained out, so we moved it to the following week. This season the Pelicans were not as active as in past visits, but we had a lot of fun with our group and covered a lot of material covering everything from camera controls to wide angle landscape composition and of course Pelicans in flight and posing in their colorful annual breeding plumage.
There are some great cliffs and caves along the La Jolla coastline. Following the class, I explored further down the coast aways during low tide and discovered some really interesting caves at Windansea Beach. I had packed away my wide angle lens which would have been best, but not being detoured, I made the best of the 80-200mm f/2.8 I had with me. I plan on going back with the right gear soon.
We are gearing up for our half day Anza-Borrego Nature Workshop Saturday March 9th from 8am to Noon. Lee Kirchhevel and I will both be leading the workshop with a maximum of 12 participants, so there will be lots of attention to each person's needs. The cost is only $50.00. If interested, please email me at [email protected] or Lee at [email protected]
I'll be in Death Valley in a couple weeks trying for some personal portfolio shots of Bad Water Basin. Then off to northern Arizona where I'll be leading a one and two day photography workshop. Our focus will be Lower Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend followed by a visit to iconic locations around Sedona.
Then in May, I'll be at two Art Shows in San Diego; Art in the Pines at Torrey Pines followed by Bernardo Winery. After that another half day workshop at Torrey Pines. Stay tuned for details and please consider joining us for one of our workshops.
