Traveling to a gorgeous place, and gathering together with birds of a feather, in the spirit of creativity… Up here, one might describe that happy convergence of purposes as “feeding two birds with one scone”.
There is an extraordinary place, in this part of the world, called “Painter’s Lodge”. The resort & event center is situated by the ocean on northern Vancouver Island, in Campbell River - the land of salmon and eagles.
I feel fortunate to have been invited to present at the annual “Photographer’s at Painter’s” weekend this year, alongside eleven other diverse, experienced photographers.
I’m excited about the list of sessions, and definitely plan to sit in on as many as I can while I’m there. The two day, two night event, April 29-May 1, 2011, will include a series of workshops, demonstrations, panel discussions, and a gallery exhibit.

News flash: There is a photo contest going on right now, for a free trip to Photographers at Painters this year. The contest ends March 20th.

Oh, and if you fish, you’ll be in heaven. There’s a salmon derby going on at that same time!
