Hey gang - just wanted to do another round of - who wants to write a guest post for dPS? 

dPS is a LARGE audience, we get over 7 million page views monthly and have almost 1 million email subscribers.

http://digital-photography-school.com/

If you're interested:  In order for me to know a bit more about you and your qualifications please fill out this form, then email me back that you've completed it. 

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Y6pveUuvrT3MbkRumLuHHlhPFfPbrRKMnCuC2HBzG2s/viewform

Be as detailed and give me as much information as possible and I'll get back to you shortly. For topics you'd like to write about, please do some research on our site first to determine:

- is this a subject we have covered before. If so how recently? We don't want to repeat articles on the same topic too often. If we haven't covered it - is it something applicable to our site? 

- what areas of expertise can you offer that you feel we can use on our site, and that will appeal to our readers

Spend some time the site getting to know what we are all about and what our readers like before you submit ideas. 

Thank you.
Darlene

Story
Tagline
Photography tutor, workshop leader, travel enthusiast, and person that can help you take better photos!
Introduction
I've been a photographer for over 26 years and gone through many incarnations of myself in this industry.  Now, I'm dedicated to helping ordinary people like you learn how to use your SLR, to take better photos, and to really enjoy what you're doing.  

I am a photography educator leading workshops through Burwell School of Photography in Edmonton, AB and also offer online courses, free articles, and photography travel tours through my site Digital Photo Mentor.

Currently we are taking bookings for Nicaragua photo tour in November 2014, and a photography tour to Cuba for January 2015.  If you live in the U.S. and want to come, it IS possible - ask me how!  If you live anywhere else - it's easy. 1 days in the country, we see 3 very different areas, do some dancing, ride classic cars, and just having a great time!  

If you want to get in touch please contact me here!
Bragging rights
I could say a lot of "blah, blah, blah" stuff here about awards, degrees and professional accomplishments but you don't really want to hear that stuff do you? Didn't think so! My biggest bragging rights are when my students say stuff like this: " After two classes I was able to apply everything I learned in those classes and take a photo in the pitch dark of an old beaten up truck in the bush and make it look cool. Every time I open the photo I think, "Wow I took that!".
