Vincent Versace presenting during the Fine Art Summit
We just returned from Moab after teaching the Fine Art Summit with Vincent Versace and teaching the Vision Field workshops afterwards. This yearly event, now in its 14th year, was a huge success and we say 'thank you' to all who attended and who helped make it a fantastic Summit.
Next year Summit will be in Death Valley and our guest presenter will be Jeff Schewe. Currently registration is opened only to previous Summit participants. If you attended a Summit in the past and want to join us next year, or if you have not yet attended but want to know more about this unique yearly event, email me at email@example.com and I will send you information right away or add you to the pre-announcement list.

New story entry
Declare your independence from other people 's vision! Express yourself and create photographs that show what you feel. In July 1995 I declared my independence from Academia and from being the instrument of someone else's vision. I never looked back. Happy 4th of July!
I now have a page featuring the pieces of my story published so far. You can see it at this link.
Yesterday I posted a photograph of our life in Chinle, Arizona. This is part of our story. As I said I will have more about our story here in the coming weeks.
What is your story? Knowing and telling your story is important because it contains your vision for what you want to achieve in your photography. This is one of the many things I teach in my new Personal Vision Mastery Workshop on DVD. Focusing my work and my life on my vision has changed my life and my work. It can change yours too.
