SNAP! October 2011 Weekend Workshop

I'm pleased to announce that my partnership with Darwin Wiggett and Samantha Chrysanthou in SNAP! Nature Photography Workshops and Seminars is continuing into 2011 and we're excited to let you know about our newest workshop, the SNAP! October 2011 Weekend Workshop at Baker Creek in beautiful Banff National Park!

We had participants come from across North America this past October to hear my bad jokes, see Sam's infamous puffy orange coat, and watch Darwin gorge on the amazing food at Baker Creek.  But seriously, we had a fantastic time with this year's participants and got to shoot at world-renowned locales like Lake Louise, Herbert Lake, Johnston Canyon, Bow Lake, and Emerald Lake, all while enjoying the gourmet food and amazing accommodations at Baker Creek Chalets near Lake Louise.

It was a workshop to remember and we're hoping that you can join us for next year's 2011 version.  You can read all about the workshop and itinerary on our SNAP! site.  And to encourage you to sign up early, we're offering up some pretty sweet prizes:  the 1st person to sign up for the workshop is going to receive a $250 gift certificate from The Camera Store in Calgary, Alberta and the 7th person to sign up is going to get a free 20-image portfolio review from Darwin, Sam, and myself!  So what are you waiting for?  Sign up now!

I also promised that we'd have a look at some of this year's Harvest Moon 2010 images, so Darwin has posted a selection of the best of the workshop on his website, while I've posted some entries from our 'Opposites Attract' assignment, which was a one-day assignment to try to capture an image composition that featured two or more elements that were opposites (smooth vs rough, sharp vs soft, moving vs still, etc).

Wow these is a great photographer at work! I've read from one post, last month I think, that to be a good photographer you have to always practice and capture even the simplest of things.
