I look forward to presenting at this year's 'Word On The Water' Book Festival in Kenora, Ontario on beautiful Lake of the Woods. I will be involved in two different presentations on Saturday.

 

Room For Readers  Saturday, October 26. 10:00 – 11:00 AM

NATURAL REFLECTIONS - Stories Behind The Lens

 

In this illustrated presentation using some of my most evocative images, I will share my thoughts and approach to photographing the natural world as well as discuss the 'how and the why' behind some of those images.

 

Room For Writers  Saturday, October 26. 3:30 – 4:30 PM

PROFESSIONALISM 101 - The Not-So-Glamorous Life

 

I will be joining authors Duncan Weller (Children's Illustrator, Author, Film Maker) and Charles Wilkins (Creative Non-Fiction NY Times Best Seller) in a panel discussion about the reality of working as a professional artist.

 

Because creating is 'in our blood', as artists we seldom retire. Artists don't like to think about business. All the more reason why artists need to understand the 'business of art'.

 

I have been very fortunate indeed to have pursued my passion at 'Making A Living At Nature Photography'. Creating images as a lifestyle is a dream for many. However, so many things have changed in the last 5 years.

 

We need a 'reality check'. I look forward to discussing this topic with my colleagues from different sectors of the 'art industry'.


Come watch a real REALITY SHOW.

 

Don't forget ....
