I love this time of year because I’m finished for a few months!!!!!!  I just did 5 workshops and drove 6,346 miles in 7 weeks!  I’m ready for a break!  But what a great 7 weeks it was!  Jim Haverstock and I did the Badlands with a great group of 7 folks, then Jack Graham and I did our fall Road Show; The UP of Michigan, Acadia National Park, and then topped off the year with a Fuji Summit in the Great Smokies and then a second Smokies workshop!  They all went great with a ton of very nice folks, a great way to end the 2018 workshop year!


Another reason I love this time of year is the thoughtfulness of some of our workshop friends!  Gale Stoner, one of my favorite guys out there, was kind enough to send me his annual photo calendar, this one was a collection of stunning flower images, I will enjoy it for the entire coming year!  Thanks Gale!  His work is outstanding!


I will have several new announcements about workshops and one on one field opportunities with me in 2019, so please stay tuned.  You can see more on mine and Jack’s stuff coming up next year at:    jackgrahamphoto.com

    You deserve a rest and R&R with the family for a few months. You have just finished a busy workshop season and are already planning another busy year. I thought you were cutting back on some of the workshops. ;^)

    Have a great Thanksgiving and holiday season.

    …and besides, you’re gonna be a busy guy when Chester starts training you!

    Most of all, Happy Thanksgiving to you, your family, and everyone here! Our Lord has been gracious and kind to us this year…may we remember that as we interact with others we meet!
