The "secret" is out. I love to do presentations on photography and marketing your art. Actually in a "former life" I was a professional speaker, so I have quite a bit of experience speaking to small and large groups of all ages across the nation. Whether in-person or via Zoom, I always customize my programs for the audience.
Just last week, I had the opportunity to speak to a camera club. It was a 45-minute presentation over Zoom. By the photo above you can probably guess the topic, "How I Got the Shot". Let me know if I may give a presentation to your organization. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Love happy surprises like seeing "Double Vision," photograph of doe and her young buck on cover of 2023 Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, @loxahatcheefriends calendar. Plus several other images are inside. You can pick-up your copy of this calendar filled with wonderful photos by local photogs at the Visitor Center.
The Kiss taken on New Year's Day.... Rock Pigeons often are overlooked, probably because they are so common. Yet in the right light they sparkle and what about those red-orange eyes.

Thanks to urgings from street photog Sharron Demarest I entered the 19th edition of the Julia Margaret Cameron Award. On Sunday while out photographing eagles in southwest Florida Sharron called not once but twice. First she called to share that I won an honorable mention for my nature series. Then she called back again. She just discovered that I won the bigger prize, the Best in Category for Landscape and Seascapes. This series of images are posted above. This is a huge international contest for women photographers. Honored to be selected by jurist Barbara Davidson, three-time Pulitzer Prize and Emmy award-winning photographer/ director as well as past recipient of this award.

It all started with "Light in the Forest". Longtime collector and friend saw it just as I was taking it down at a recent solo exhibit. Within less than a week the next three images were selected. So blessed to have these fine art photographs now gracing her newly renovated home.
