After just as few days at home it’s on the road again, first as quick stop in Nashville for the Fuji X-T10 release, and then Tuesday back to the airport for a flight to Portland , Oregon for the Oregon Coast workshop with Jack Graham!  I’m really looking forward to shooting the coast with Jack, he really knows this region!  I’m trying to cut back my gear load for this trip and I’m taking the following:


1 – Fuji X-T1

1 – Fuji X-T10

1- Fuji X100T


The following lenses:  10-24   16-55   –  18-135   –   50-140   –   Nikon 200mm f 4 small telephoto


* I could probably leave the 18-135 at home, but I really love that lens and use it a lot! 



That will give me coverage from 15mm to 300mm in just four lenses.  I will try to keep up enough energy to show you what we are shooting and keep you up to speed on using this range of lenses.


I’ve really been blessed this spring and have met a lot of great people, and had some great fellowship.  Please pray for our attendees, and Jack and I, we want to really give these folks a great experience!


In Him, Blessings,

If anyone had walked up to me in the last two days band said, you’ve got it made, running workshops! I might have slapped them up side the head, o.k. I wouldn’t but up at 2:45 a.m. and back into bed around 10:30 p.m. four four straight days!!!!!  The Palouse his beautiful, but this was my 8ht our ninth trip there, and probably my last.  I love the region and the people and working with Jack is a delight, noir to mention Pete and the Top Notch Cafe!  Maybe after i rest up, I will rethink it, but man is it a abeam to do a  workshop in June that far north!!!!


Our group was fantastic, and I enjoyed every minute with them, but an alarm at 2:45!<?*&^@*&%$!@  O.k. on to some photography.  On this trip I was shooting the new Fuji X-T10 exclusively.  I do programs in Nashville this weekend for the official release party and I wanted a good knowledge of the camera for that.  The more I shot it, the more I loved it!  Here are some images with technical info on each.

Good news, Bad news;  This place requires very long days, I’m already a little tired, but the greatness is you get up early and stay out late to shoot this wonderful scenery!!!  Jack and I are having a great time and we have a fantastic group!  Here is some images from this morning!



Great stuff to shoot every where you shoot!
