Happy New Year!
2013 is a great milestone for us as it's the 10 year anniversary of my photography business! We've come a long way since I registered my domain name and built the first version of "Christography" with an old Mac and Dreamweaver back in 2003. I thank each and every one of you for making the last ten years a success. Sue and I look forward to the next leg of this journey and have listed an overview of just some of the adventures scheduled in the new year. We hope to see both familiar faces, as well as new participants as we have several exciting photo expeditions planned both in the U.S. and Europe.
There is an "Early Bird Special" for the Autumn Arts Festival: $2,995 for registrations received by February 15th. Click for details.
Also, while it's chilly out now, Cherry Blossom season is only a few months off. Sue and I look forward to another great day in our Nation's capital in April. I keep my workshops small so everyone gets personalized attention and detailed photography instruction. To take advantage of Early Bird registration, and for more details, click here.
Here's what one of the 2012 participants had to say, "Thanks to Chris and Sue for a fabulous day in DC. I learned so much in one day about photography as well as my camera. I learned to use many features of my camera that previously I had no idea how to use. Chris keeps these workshops to small groups for personalized attention and boy did we ever get personal attention. It seemed like every time I snapped a pic, Chris was looking over my shoulder waiting to critique the shot and offer suggestions as to how to make the picture better. It was an awesome day and I highly recommend signing up for one of the workshops. - Peter
In June, I'll be testing my sea legs as the photo instructor aboard a Smithsonian Journey sailing from Barcelona to Croatia. Travel in style aboard the 100 passenger, all suite Corinthian ship. Click for more info, and to reserve your space.
If your schedule is too hectic for a travel workshop, I do offer private lessons in the metro NY, Long Island. To schedule a session and read what my clients are saying, visit here.
Finally, here is a slideshow of images that I've recently added to the website galleries. All were processed exclusively in Lightroom 4 with no Photoshop whatsoever. This begs the question; can a professional photographer work exclusively in Lightroom and bypass Photoshop altogether? This is something I plan to explore further in 2013.
