Grand Manan 2013 Photography Workshop Details!

Here are the details on this year’s Grand Manan Photography Workshop running June 27-30th!
Grand Manan, named by Readers Digest as one of the world's 7 best small islands, is a beautiful island full of photographic possibilities! The fishing villages, lighthouses, wharves and boats. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Amazing shorelines. A wide array of geological features-cliffs, rocks, sandy beaches. Early summer wildflowers. Being a maritime island, the weather can be unpredictable, which can provide some interesting challenges, but also some amazing opportunities!
View some amazing photography from previous workshop participants here:
Looking forward to another great trip with some great people. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me!

How About A Photo Scavenger Hunt...In Space!

As many of you know, Canadian astronaut Commander Chris Hadfield has been using Twitter to share some of his amazing shots he is taking during his time on the International Space Station.
He's got a unique view on the Earth, and the images are spectacular!  You should bookmark his Tumblr page.
If you haven't been following him on Twitter, he's @Cmdr_Hadfield

It's been great how he has been interacting through social media and sharing with Canadians.
For something fun, Canadians have been asked to take part in a photo challenge to add an image of Colonel Hadfield in his space suit by the Canadian Space Agency.

Colonel Hadfield himself has challenged some of his twitter followers to caption some of his great images, or use photoshop on them.

While I doubt he would have time for it, I thought it might be interesting to offer HIM a photo challenge or two.
