I was very lucky to have had a show at Koi Zen Cellars 2 years ago. It was a huge success for me and a tonne of fun for those that attended. Koi Zen makes top notch wine and they just expanded! The space is huge and Lisa & Darius Miller will welcome you and fill your glass to the brim! I’m looking forward to a new show with new artwork! The show will hang for 5 weeks but please come out and see us on the opening night of September 16th. Come thirsty!
And now for something totally different & fun! Youth sports photography! If you are a parent photographer or a hobbyist and you’ve struggled with how to get great images of your own althetes then this is the class for you.

Come and enjoy this high lever master class. If you want to produce art that is ‘next level’ with the intent to sell, or to submit to contests etc., then this is the class for you. This is a hands on workshop so you will need to bring your camera, macro lens, flashlight, table top light, tripod and cable release. We are going to work with water and other liquids. We will learn about reflections and how to create images within water drops. This class is sponsored by Nelson Photo, Tamron USA and Savage Universal. I will have some lenses and some extension tubes to work with. (limited availability) It will be a small (10 students only) class. I want to ensure that you get a lot of one on one time. We will wrap the day with an image review and critique. Go to www.nelsonphotosupplies.com/classes to register. At this point, there are only 3 spots remaining.
I’m thrilled to be pairing with Nelson Photo, Tamron USA and Savage to present the coolest Macro Photography Workshop to date.

The Photo Artists Camera Club in San Diego is hosting me for a speaking event at Losina Art Center. Join us on Aug 18, 2016. 7-9p.m. This one will be fun because we are going to do an image critique as well. Be brave, bring your images on a flash drive. What have you got to lose?!
Join me at the San Diego County Fair this weekend. I’ll be speaking in a workshop room on the second floor of the East grandstand, it’s right next to the photography gallery. Come early and check out the photography competition winners. I guarantee you will be impressed at the level of artistry shown. Every year over a thousand amateur and professional photographers enter this competition, less than half of those images are chosen to hang at the show. It’s really something to see in person.
Announcing an advanced level macro class. This will be so much fun. It will be challenging, no question. Bring your own subject matter or if you really want to push yourself let me provide it and you can let yourself be pushed creatively. Bring your macro lens and a solid tripod and let’s make something amazing. Each attendee will receive a coupon for a large wall art print from Miller’s Professional Imaging. You can print your own masterpiece!
