I want to invite you to join with me and a select group of friends in seeking the sources of our creativity—and working to become the best and most creative artists and photographers we can be!
This spring and summer, in Berkeley, California please consider:
- From iPhone to Art—January 28 and 29, 2017. My iPhone photography has been acclaimed as art, and published and collected widely. This workshop answers the question: Since the iPhone is the camera we always have with us, and since so much of our photography is done with the iPhone, why not be the best iPhoneographers we can be?

- Photographing Flowers for Transparency—March 11 and 12, 2017. There is no better way to learn the light box photography and post-production techniques that I’ve pioneered than to join me for this soup-to-nuts hands-on workshop. Each participant will produce their own translucent floral compositions. Click here for more information and registration.
- 4-Day Flower Masterclass Intensive—-June 22-25, 2017. Do you have a special love for photographing flowers? This unique, one-time small group workshop may be for you. We’ll photograph flowers in gardens, in horticultural nurseries, and experiment with photographing flowers on a light box as well as other studio techniques. Admission is by portfolio, unless you are a graduate of one of my flower workshops. Click here for more information and registration.
On the East coast, I’ll be presenting at B&H in New York City on Monday, February 20. I’m in New York as part of the publicity campaign for my new book from Monacelli Press, The Photographer’s Black & White Handbook.
Later in the year, I look forward to fellowship of photographers, lobster, and a week photographing flowers for transparency at Maine Media Workshops in Rockport, Maine from July 30 – August 5. This will be my third season teaching at MMW; highly recommended as a fun and intensive learning experience that is hard to match anywhere else.
Destination Rural France: Exploring and photographing rural France with a compatible group of photographers is a once in a lifetime peak experience, particularly in the spring. We enjoyed it so much last year when we stayed at an old restored farmhouse in the Lot River Valley that we’re repeating the exclusive experience, this time with an emphasis on Bordeaux and the Dordogne, with a lucky few photographic friends from April 22-30, 2017.
This is a beautiful and very special part of the world with great beauty and style—not to mention great food! We have room for one or two more.

More from me: As the old saw goes, “Enough about me. Now, what do you think of me?” Be that as it may, I’ll be following up as I am able with notes about what I am up to, thoughts about creativity and staying creative, and some exciting personal travel plans. Be well, and best wishes for a great 2017!
