News from Jim Clark Photo - July 18, 2017
Hope your year has been full of photographic opportunities and wonderful memories of days in nature.
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.
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 will also be the nature photography instructor for a private cruise along the coast of southeast Alaska in July 2017 for the Defenders of Wildlife and possibly for a conservation workshop in Yellowstone as well. The Alaska trip will be second time participating in this event and the Yellowstone event will be my sixth time serving as photography instructor there.
I was the featured speaker at the annual Mountain State Photographers' Conference, July 30 2016 at the Cedar Lakes Conference Center in Ripley, West Virginia. I also presented an afternoon seminar, "Twenty-five top tips for nature photography," at the conference. It was a grand time for all! It is always a pleasure and honor to speak to my West Virginia friends. Thanks to the Charleston Camera Club and my fellow colleague Ron Gaskins for inviting me.
Our 4th annual Delmarva Wildlife and Nature Photography Summit (November 2016) at the Chincoteague Bay Field Station
was a big hit. The fifth annual summit will also be this November.
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.
Here's wishing you a great 2017!!!
