I share with you an article I wrote for The Camera Store newsletter. The article is titled "From Michelangelo to Arnold Palmer" and in it I share some of my thoughts on storytelling, the essence of a photograph and shooting your shot...
Interested in improving your photography both technically and creatively? Are you stuck in a creative rut? Do you feel a need to push yourself to the next level in creating photographs which connect with viewers and tell engaging stories? Then join myself and +Royce Howland for a workshop Sept 5-10, 2014 in the Cypress Hills region of southern Alberta and Saskatchewan.

I am thrilled to announce that I will be teaming up with +Royce Howland to co-lead what promises to be an exciting photography workshop happening September 5-10 next year in the wonderful Cypress Hills region of southeastern Alberta. The primary goal of the workshop is to improve each photographers storytelling ability within the frame.
Ha! Ha! Not the intention. We all need support and reminding. No exception here ;-) Honestly, what I wrote may be the best few words on why I personally love photography that I've written in a long time.
I was in Calgary on the weekend to give a presentation, with +Royce Howland at the Calgary Public Library. We had a great turnout for our talk. It's always special when thank you emails follow and people share how we changed photography for them, how we inspired them to make photographs which are personal, creative and tell a story.
Royce and I went for a shoot on Sunday morning and the sky was pretty funky...
+Carolyn Fahm - I saw the scene as an interesting composition play between balance and tension for precisely the reason you mentioned about the weather. I'm glad that feeling came through for you in the image.
