Back in the U.S.A.

Hello dear friends and followers. Yes, it’s been a while, I have been out of touch and I apologize, but there have been many, many changes in my life. The most significant change is that I have moved back to the USA. After over elevent years living in Switzerland, my wife and I decided it was time to come home. Fortunately, for us, we had a choice of places to move back to and we chose Southwest Florida. So far, we love it, it is sunny and warm nearly every day and you can’t smack the smile off my face sometimes.

So, as I am getting settled in down here, I will keep all of you posted. I am planning some great events and workshops for the coming year and beyond, so stay tuned.

To start off, I want to let you know about my new friends here in Fort Myers at Boller Brothers Rental Studios. Kevin is running the show and he has setup a dream studio about five minutes from RSW International Airport. There are three rooms to shoot in, plus an outdoor area. The shooting bays are incredible, with high ceilings and garage door access for cars and motorcycles. This is a pro shop!

The help these guys get off the ground, I suggested they do some free events, so coming up on April 13th, 2012, we are going to host a Critique Night. If you are in the area, you should bring your best images and come along to check the place out and meet the people involved, even if you can never imagine renting a studio. Why? Because Kevin is a little crazy and he is giving away a free day rental at this event. Even if you don’t win the drawing, you still win because you will gert $25 off your first half or full day rental.

Please check it out and come on down, you’ll find more info here and you can RSVP here. If you are busy that night, don’t fret, this will be a regular event, so go to the RSVP link anyway and sign up for the mailing list so you don’t miss out.

Evolving the workshop experience.

During my Easter break in Tuscany, I had a great time relaxing at

il Poggiolo

and traveling around the region. The time off gave me the opportunity to think about my upcoming workshops and to start to lay some plans and scout new locations that we can recommend to students.

One major change this year is that we will have more of a focus on individual tutoring and reviews. I feel this will allow students more flexibility to decide what, how and where they want to shoot. I have always had a focus on individual development in my workshops, but in the past, we always had a big focus on going to locations together as a group. This year I am planning to give students more control on how they spend their time. Of course, there will still be some group shooting sessions. However, this year, I want to take more time to work with students individually, to help them move in their own unique directions.

I am confident that this will provide both returning and new students a deeper sense of development. I think it will also allow everyone to utilize their time in whatever way they prefer.
