News from Jim Clark Photo - September 2, 2017
Hope this year has been full of photographic opportunities and wonderful memories of your time in nature. This has been a great "nature photography" year for me so far!
My 2017 workshop season has been a big success and each session has been with some wonderful and eager students. I still have two workshops left for the year and they will be in October and November. For 2018, I am scheduled for four spring workshops and two autumn workshops for the Chincoteague Bay Field Station, which will also be my eight year serving as nature photography instructor for them. I will also be one of the instructors for the field station's Delmarva Nature & Wildlife Photograhpy Summit, which will be sometime in November 2018 (more details later).
You'll soon discover that a nature photography workshop with Jim Clark is really a "working" workshop.To learn more, visit the Chincoteague Bay Field Station
I spent nine days in July photographing along the southeastern coast of Alaska, specifically around the islands of Barnoff, Admiralty, and Kuiu Islands. I served as the nature photography instructor during the cruise for the Defenders of Wildlife. We were on the 157 foot ship The Mist Cove and we started our journey from Juneau and ended at the port of Sitka. Lots of images of humpback whales, brown bears, seabirds, Steller sea lions, and landscapes. My son Carson and I captured more than 20,000 images during the trip. I'll be posting some of those later this fall.
One of my marsh images from the eastern shore was selected for a major exhibit at the new Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center near the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge in Maryland. Two of my images were selected as the website banners for North Atlantic Waterfowl Venture of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Two more images were selected by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for use by their Atlantic Joint Venture website.
Hope your autumn season is colorful, fun and memorable. I'm hoping to sneak out and return to my beloved home state of West Virginia to do some fall photography as well. Take care.
