    Workshop News - Less than a month to go ....


    How time flies! In just less than a month, 'Photoshop Guru' Ken Frazer and I will be meeting up with the workshop participants in Riding Mountain National Park to embark on a 'little journey of learning'. Ken and his wife Eileen were up at the Park this past weekend and the evidence of a long and cold winter is quickly disappearing. Bring on the summer!!!

    We are gearing up for a very intensive photographic weekend. Personally, I am looking forward to showing you some of my favorite locations in the park. It is always exciting to share photography with others and I am thrilled to spend 4 days exploring the park with you, photographing various subjects at dawn, dusk and other times in between and, sharing more than 35 years of field experience. Ken is excited about filling your head with all the latest in the world of image editing and file preparation. A large format printer will be on-hand to allow you to take home a fine art print of one of your favorite images from the weekend. We will be able to give all participants plenty of one-on-one coaching to help you achieve your photographic goals. And we hope to inspire you with plenty of imagery during our instructional sessions! The greatest inspiration should obviously come from experiencing the park itslef!

    We have made some minor tweeks to the website. If you haven't seen it yet, we invite you to have a look and learn all about the workshop! You are more than welcome to give us a call at 1-866-285-1647 (Ken) or 1-204-254-3131 (Mike) should you have any questions.

    Please feel free to pass this note along to anyone you think might enjoy or benefit from this unique experience!

    Looking forward to meeting you soon!
