On Monday Art, Gavriel Jecan, Jay Goodrich, and Rich Reid arrived in Jackson, Wyoming to start scouting locations for our Grand Teton Workshop. They made a quick trip to Yellowstone to visit a burn area from a wildfire that Art filmed last year. The location was stunning. Here is an abstract that Art shot from that visit. Don’t forget our next instructional event will be in San Jose, CA on September 25, 2010. Art will be speaking about the Art of Composition. There are still spaces left and with a $195 entrance fee why wouldn’t you attend?
I have travelled in the Pakistan’s mountainous regions which have been hit very hard by the unprecedented flooding. These trips were among the most fascinating and rewarding of my life—wherever I went, I was warmly greeted and received by the Balti peoples. Life has always been exceptionally difficult for these people, and their struggle for survival has become that much worse.
It is important that people put their religious & political ideologies aside and do what is right. We have so much. Please donate to your favorite charity sending aid to Pakistan.
