Thoughts from the Road

Join us September 16 - October 1, 2019 when we present “Thoughts from the Road”.  On assignment to traverse the Desert Southwest to share with you concept, staging, technical expression and my philosophy on the art of the photography.
This isn’t just a road trip; I’ll be documenting my days chasing the sun, the moon, the perfect setting to create artful photography and my philosophy behind that art with veteran film maker Dean Wellman.
The goal is to give photographers a tool, a cohesive look at photography documented in film. You’ll get to know me personally as well as use my knowledge for a guide in your own photographic adventures.  I will take you through the photographic process step by step from finding the right light, composition, camera settings and more. Let’s just get it right in camera.
Help me create this tool; I’m asking for your donations at www.gofundme.com/thoughts-from-the-road.   I’m offering incentives for your donations. Be a part of our journey with “Thoughts from the Road” September 16 - October 1, 2019.
