Portugal, Summer 2016

Don't be put off by the title of the program.  Plein Air Portugal.  Possibly means more to the plein air painters out there, but if you think about it - we photographers who enjoy observing the natural world - don't we shoot a plein air?
A few spaces remain available for this summer's program.  Take a look.  Tell your friends.
Grab a friend and come together - each save 10% when sharing a spacious room.

The iphone.

I've been experimenting with my iphone 5-s.  Being late to the world of smart phones, I was skeptical of the camera abilities.  That changed very quickly.   It's been a fun exploration - one that is just beginning.

Here are a few of the latest ones.  Currently, they're being printed at 5" x 7".  I'm thinking of going even smaller, but for now, the 5 x 7 is working for me.

Hard working women

A series I began in Portugal last summer.  There's more to see/explore/discover in Travanca do Monte than the amazing landscape.  These women continue to work the land the way their ancestors have done for centuries. 

New Year - new work

Haven't posted here for a while - so, onwards....

Time to think about summer. Yes - it's only February - but isn't it nice to think about summer?

Once again I will be co-directing Plein Air Portugal with Dale Emmart.

Please visit the website for information about this year's program:  july 23 - aug. 4.
