I look forward to meeting and working with you … and showing you how best to use your camera gear, how to enhance your photos, and how to have fun with your photography.
The Bombay Hook NWR Photo Weekend was the absolute best nature photography workshop. I loved the variety of photo opportunities and the one-on-one instruction.
In addition to recommending your mini-photo workshops, I have told all my photographer friends to buy your book Photographing Baltimore, Annapolis & Maryland’s Eastern Shore. You have to come talk to our camera club.
Wow! Thanks to your Evening Twilight Photo Safari we both shot amazing pictures of Baltimore during its Star Spangled Spectacular celebration. We chuckled but were touched when you told us you were jealous of my photo of the tall ship under sail.
