This is a special program designed to help you get out and see the world and break the stigma that “it’s just to expensive” through the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers. I will be taking on a handful of people for a 7 week on-line mentorship program which will include lessons, assignments, and informal discussions. Everyone who participates can have fun and learn at the same time!
I’ve dedicated my life to travel photography. I’ve shot the northern lights past the arctic circle and thunderstorms in the desert. I’ve been in 15 countries this year, with more coming before the year is done. I’ve worked with master photographers and taught workshops in the Rocky Mountains. My aim and goal is to get people out experiencing the world we have.
PLEASE NOTE: I am currently in Bulgaria, so timezone issues may apply while we are getting this started. Later evening to nighttime for me is early morning to mid-day for you.
Selections will begin 11/17 for the mentorship beginning 11/20
These are the selection criteria:
• You must be taking and posting your own photographs regularly here on G+ –– an absolute minimum of three days between Public posts; more increases your chances of being selected. (The class itself will be private to the group selected except for the option of a public display album of your best work at the end.)
• You must be interactive here at G+, as you will be expected to participate in this program giving feedback and comments to others.
• You have no previous studies in this subject, since this program is designed for those who have not had the opportunity or advantage to add this skill set to their knowledge base.
• You have the time available to participate in this workshop.

TRIBUTE TO MY MOTHER
Doris Jean Eaton, 79, went to be with our Heavenly Father on Monday, July 27, 2015, at her home in Mesquite, Texas.
Doris was born on August 13, 1935 to Gene and Hazel Stewart in Corsicana, Texas. She graduated from Corsicana High School in 1953. She went on to study at Scott & White in Temple and became a registered nurse. Doris married Nathan A. Eaton of Kerens, the love of her life for 59 years, on June 23, 1956.
After working as a nurse in several hospitals, Doris became the school nurse at North Mesquite High School. It was here that she discovered her true calling. Students who worked for her and came through the clinic grew to love and respect her. She was a mom, friend, counselor and confidant. She retired from school nursing in 1995.
Doris was an active member of Eastminster Presbyterian Church and Texas Retired Teachers Association. She and Nathan greatly enjoyed traveling in their retired years. Her passion after retiring was genealogy. She made many friends on Ancestry.com and loved researching family history.
Doris is survived by her husband, Nathan, and her children: Nathan Eaton Jr. and his wife Linda, Donna Eaton and her spouse Tina Smith, Dana Eaton and his wife Christie, and Mark Eaton and his wife Johnna. Doris is also survived by grandchildren Josh Eaton and his wife Jess, Brian Eaton and his wife Amber, Chris Eaton and his wife Katie, Emily, Lauren, Matthew, Whitney and Jacob, along with great-grand children Kaili, Jackson, Olivia and Harper.
Memorial services are set for 2 p.m. Saturday, August 1, 2015, at Eastminster Presbyterian Church, 6550 Samuell Blvd., Dallas 75228.
The family wishes to extend our thanks for the loving care of the staff at Home Instead and Faith Presbyterian Hospice.
