I just did a one day seminar in Buffalo, New York, actually Hamburg and it may have been the most enjoyable one I’ve ever done, “for me!”  The Frontier Camera Club Council brought me in and Fujifilm partially sponsored the event as well.  When I arrived in town I went over to the meeting room facility, as I always do, to check out the room.  To my shock it was set up for 125 people in big round tables!!!  Additionally the club member that was suppose to bring their 14 foot screen had gone on vacation and didn’t arrange for anyone to get it!!!  I was really stressed, I only had a 70″ X 70″ screen which I feared would never work for that size room and everyone spread out!!!!!!!




I always try to make my programs as effective as possible for my audience, but this was a disaster, or so I thought!!!!  I finally decided the only thing I could do was “suggest” everyone grab their chairs and move in to a close to the screen as possible!!


This is where the miracle happened!!  This group was great, they got into the spirit of the situation and came in close and we had a great day together, lots of laughing and learning.  By the end of the day it was obvious, God had laid his hand on the event.  Mike Dziak was a wonderful host and the entire club and guests were a real delight to be with!!!  This morning 25 of the students signed up for a field event at a local train museum with me, and once again, it was a great experience for me, and I feel sure they felt the same as many of them expressed that to me!!!


I’ve often said that when this is all over for me, it will be the people that mean the most, this weekend’s experience certainly underlined that!!!


Thanks guys for a great weekend for me, I pray it was for you too, you truly deserve it!!!!!

    After all these years, I have come to the conclusion (as I am sure you have) – that most of our sweating/concerns/challenges are opportunities for God to make things better! Trusting in Him is the key that allows Him to work on our behalf!! I love it when God shows up like He did with you!!

  2. Hi Bill.

    I truly enjoyed your workshop and being a fellow Christian and Fuji-shooter only enhanced my enjoyment of the day. I was blessed to spent the hour beforehand with you engaged in wonderful conversation about your photography experiences and your passion for your work. Thank you for making my mistake of getting there an hour too early a remarkable rewarding experience.

    I also learned a lot the next morning at the train station shoot. It was an excellent learning opportunity and so much fun to hang out with you and the other inspired photographers. The only problem is I have many photos that I like so I’m having a hard time choosing just one to submit.
