I will be conducting a one-day photo workshop on the Sunday as part of the 'Word On The Water' Book Festival taking place in Kenora, Ontario from October 25-27, 2013. In 'Viewfinder To Print', I will lead participants outdoors for a sunrise shoot near Kenora. I will demonstrate my process of setting up to capture an image, as well as talk about the decisions I make as I look through the viewfinder to execute the best image possible in-camera. Later we will return indoors to edit and process the images and learn more about expressing your vision in the final image. The workshop will end with a critique of the participants' work. The workshop is limited to 15 people.

As you plan your next trip through the immense province of Ontario, you will undoubtedly find 'A Photographer's Guide To The Ontario Landscape' an indispensible guide to countless photographic locations. My friend and colleague, Andrew McLachlan, has produced an outstanding e-book to direct you to these wonderful locations. I had the pleasure of traveling and photographing with Andrew during some of these excursions. Throughout the book, Andrew has interspersed many tips about making fine images.
On Friday, April 1 Winnipeg's own Chris Gray delighted the 'full house' at Pixels 2.1 Gallery with his entertaining images of a recent trip to Africa. 'Dreams of Africa' was no April fool's joke either! It was an evening filled with information about getting to Africa, what to watch out for when booking a tour or photo workshop and, of course, it was about seeing a beautiful collection of Chris' images. One of 'humble Chris' images was voted a 'fan' favorite in a past National Geographic photo contest! The presentation was another in a series of 'First Friday Speakeasy' events held at Pixels 2.1 Gallery where photographers are gathering to meet, talk and breath PHOTOGRAPHY!
