– to understand the link between your definition of “beauty” and your passion

– to take better photographs, ones that speak not only to you but to others, including focussing on how to capture the  essence of a subject, be it a tree, puppydog, child…

– if time permits, explore the options of getting your artwork out to the world

– to realistically understand the stability of the artwork being created today, and how to

archivally protect the important photographs of your life

– to have an exciting day focussed on you and your creations!

– to build a community of like-minded individuals who love to create.

– to be fueled with excitement and to be (re-)inspired!
