For my friends here in the Bay Area and Northern California: I’ll be one of the featured presenters at this year’s FotoClave 2017 on November 4, 2017 in Pleasanton, California. I’ll be giving a presentation on “The Right Light: Understanding Natural Light for Landscapes and Details,” on Saturday morning.

FotoClave is a wonderful 3-day program that is put on and sponsored by the Northern California Council of Camera Clubs (N4C). This year’s Keynote Speakers include photographers George Lepp, Seth Resnik, and Brenda Tharp. There is also an optional Saturday evening banquet dinner.

There aren’t many tickets left available for this wonderful local event. Download a copy of the event PDF here.

I hope I’ll get to see and meet some of you there.
