Winona School

Even though the Winona School was in June, I thought it would be fun to post a few of the images I did in class. We photographed pregnant women - this was of one of the students from another class - she was a wonderful model and loved her images. We also photographed babies, toddlers and families. Special thanks to "Young Robert" for being a stand-in model when the class went out to look for available light (his dad - who was dubbed "Mature Robert" was a student in the class. All in all it was a fun week in a wonderful setting at Brown County State Park outside Indianapolis. Winona was the original weeklong photography class for professional photographers and this was the first year the school has been recreated since PPA moved to Atlanta some 15 years ago. It was an honor to teach there and my students were great! I am looking forward to the opportunity to teach another weeklong class - the time went by before we knew it.

Summer Fun

Wow - the summer is about to be behind us! OK, I 'm not the best about keeping up with my blog, but it has been a busy summer! I taught a weeklong class in Illinois about photographing children, had all 4 prints accepted into the PPA International print competiton (all I entered in NC PLUS my fav Korean Market scene), made many trips to the beach to photograph families, first week of August was East Coast School Photographic Workshops, and then judged and spoke at the Tennesee convention in Nashville. That makes a quick summer - now it's time to get caught up and gear up for the fall season!
