More magic from +Alistair Nicol from the +Mountains To Sea Workshops that he, +Tommy White and I did a couple of weeks ago on the North Carolina Outer Banks.

Loving life with +f-stop and +Really Right Stuff :)

+Athena Carey knee deep in the swirling Atlantic capturing the old Frisco Pier on Cape Hatteras, OBX and sporting the brand new  +f-stop Loka UL..

During the +Mountains To Sea Workshops OBX Workshop we visited this pier hoping to capture it in all it's glory possibly for the last time. Hurricane Arthur was just forming to our South and we had seen demolition crews starting to work on it earlier in the week. Apparently a new company has bought it. I wonder what they plan to do.

Later today Athena arrives here in Charleston and we have a number of Low Country locations planned. Send some good weather vibes over will ya!

What a wonderful weekend it was. :)
 
Wonderful Weekend of Photography

My apologies to both +David Amerland and +Mark Bruce for not participating in either of their usual Sunday content sharing, but I was on the Outer Banks of North Carolina for a weekend of long-exposure photography, sunrises, and sunsets.  We got slammed with some major thunderstorms that deprived us of a couple shoots, but we were able to make up 1 of them.

A HUGE thanks to +Athena Carey , +Tommy White , and +Alistair Nicol for doing a great job with the workshop.  It was so exciting to meet Athena after knowing her for more than 2.5 years here on G+.

Since many of the participants aren't on G+ yet, I guess I"ll have to spend a little time on FB now, but at least it will be for stuff I enjoy.

Introduction
Landscape and Portrait Photographer in Geneva, Switzerland

Background:
one woman, a camera, the world...

It feels as if I have been a photographer my entire life...  

My interest in photography was sparked at age nine, when my parents sent me overseas with my mother's small point & shoot camera to visit my godparents.  It was a little box shaped camera with flash cubes that burned out after one use.  I loved that thing and took many photos of my adventure.

In the many years since then, I have moved on through many cameras, various photographic genres, and different medias. I truly enjoy everything photographic - from long exposure landscapes, to artistic portraits, to abstract macro art.

To share my love of photography, I teach courses locally.  If you ever have questions about any of the photos I post - just ask.  I'm happy to share.
