Maui Sunsets

It is said that the sunsets on Maui are the most spectacular in the world. Whether that is a fact or an alternate fact I can’t say, but I can tell you that Maui sunsets are gorgeous.

Giclée! Giclée???

Okay, everyone, close your books, put down your pencils and pay attention. In a moment I will either dispel a myth or educate you, take your pick. But for now, just listen up. Please stop calling photographic art prints “Giclée prints”! Got it?

Breaching Whales

Humpback breaching

One of the reasons I love Maui in February is the return of the humpback whales to their mating and birthing grounds. It is such a celebratory time, as boatloads of tourists revel in the spectacle of thousands of whales frolicking, singing, taking care of their babies and… breaching.

To Profile or Not; That is the Question!

The Joys of Fine Art Printing - Part Two

One of the pleasures of being a photography workshop leader is seeing your clients excel. A few years ago, Dr. Lew Rothman, a retired physician, took my Acadia National Park workshop and I was immediately impressed by his work and his very considered and mindful approach to photography. We have kept in touch ever since. So, it was no surprise to hear that Lew’s work is now on exhibit in the New York area.

Please, Listen Up!

If you plan on reading on, you’ll have to excuse what will probably be a picture-less rant. I’m here to say that one of the very best ways to improve your photography, to move it from good to WOW!, is not with your eyes, but with your ears!

Another Great Acadia Workshop Starts

Got up for sunrise yesterday preparing for my annual Acadia National Park workshop. Scooted over to Boulder Beach to wait for the sun to come up. What a lovely morning it was.

The Joys of fine Art Printing

We just completed another of our limited seating fine art printing workshops and I thought I’d share some images and a video with you.
