I entered four prints in the Ohio and Mid-East States Regional Print Competition, at the 2010 annual convention of the Professional Photographers of Ohio, held at the Dayton Convention Center during the weekend of March 10th. All four received judging scores allowing for inclusion in the public print exhibition part of the program. In addition, three prints were awarded with Honorable Mentions, including “February Falls,” “Summer’s End” and “Sunflower Moon.” An Award of Achievement” was presented for “Lingering Notes.”
The custom printmaking services that I utilized for this year’s competition prints was provided by TransImage, located in Kettering, Ohio.
The 2009 annual convention of PPO was the first time that I had entered the very competitive, juried print competition and public exhibition. Six prints were entered. All were selected for the public show, with three Honorable Mentions and three Awards of Achievement.
And just a heads-up. I will be presenting two, full-day workshops at Cox Arboretum, the first on Saturday, April 10th and the second on Saturday, May 29th. Both will emphasize macro nature photography in the garden. The April 10th program is currently full (I cap the class at 25 total attendees), but there is a short wait list. I almost always have cancellations when I send-out the pre-session reminder, about a week prior to the workshop.
The workshop scheduled for May 29th currently has 12 registered attendees, so there are still plenty of open seats for that program.
If you’d like to register, or be added to a wait list, please call me at 937-432-6711 or email. The fee for each workshop is $89 per person, payable on the day of the workshop. Lunch is included.
I will also be participating in Orvis Days on Saturday, May 8, 2010 at The Orvis Store near the Dayton Mall. During the day I will be presenting prints of my work as well as providing some basic tips on nature and landscape photography.
