Playing a different tune……

6 years ago 16


A little music lingo there!  This week is being spent finishing up 11 years of working for Nikon. Several big boxes are on the way back to Nikon with the huge consignment of gear that had to be returned.  A friend said, “I bet you will hate to send all that stuff back”, honestly I’m glad to see it go!  Not that it wasn’t fun, but the responsibility of all that stuff in my house was always a little much.  I’ve learned to shoot with a much smaller set of gear, and actually enjoy the simplicity more, and my images are better with less thinking about the equipment.


I’m really looking forward to some time with family, the Nashville workshop, the Faithful Friends gathering in the Smokies, Glacier  with Charles Stanley, light painting with Dave Black at Shaker Village and finally doing the Death Valley and Amish Country Workshops with Jack Graham.  I’m thrilled to be going back to Photoshop World in Las Vegas in September, and speaking at the Black Hills Photo Shootout in South Dakota!  Then I can’t wait to get started on a few dozen eBooks I plan to produce, wow, I’m gonna be busy!  I am more committed than every to spread the good news of His love on the blog, and everywhere I’m to go and speak, or share.


Lots of exciting things are coming down the track for Jim and I, please pray that we put Him first, and seek His wisdon in all things.

    This tune is really loaded! Looks like there’s still some more work to be done!

    Praying for you… Was going to come to one of your workshop…but was not in God’s plans for me this year. I’m a working photographer for the Department of Defense and we are being furloughed one day a week. Kind of took a big part out of the photo budget. God knows whats going on and I trust in Him.

    Yes Mike, His plans are greater than our plans, and far, far wiser!

    Will you continue to blog? Maybe once in awhile?

    Your blog post today reminds me of one of my favorite songs “It Is Well With My Soul”! It looks and sounds like you will be as busy as ever but all is well with your soul! Love your blog!

    I’m so happy for you Bill! You have 2 gifts that God is using to bless others and how fortunate for you to be able to combine the two! Sounds like I may have been lucky to have seen you when I did at Creve Coeur camera in St. Louis, not knowing at the time that retirement was right around the corner! I love your genuine passion for the Lord and telling others about Him. Sometimes it really is as simple as that, not all the heady, over-analyzed information that comes from the deep-thinkers (admirable, yes, but not always necessary).

    Thank you for being a LIGHT! Read a great quote yesterday: “The darker the room, the more powerful the light.”

    Blessings, my Brother in Christ!

      Thanks for those kind words, but always remember all we can be is a reflector of the greatests source of light in the world, Him!

    When is the Black Hills Photo Shootout? Maybe I could stop by and say hi! The general Black Hills area is only about 5 hours from here and we were planning a trip sometime this year anyway.
