I haven’t had time to post thanks to the whirlwind of activity at the North American Nature Photographers Association conference in Palm Springs. In a nutshell, the conference was excellent and exceeded all my expectations.
First was the day and a half of travel. It amazes me to go from a small Alaska town, with cold weather and deep snow, to a place like Palm Springs in such a short period of time. The contrast is extreme. The Conference was held at a fancy resort where if you are willing to pay enough, you can find people to rub your back, clip your nails and wash your face – they prefer words like massage, pedicure and facial.
The Conference itself was excellent. I meet a number of photographers, and made some great friends. The break-out sessions were very informative, I may touch on some of them in follow-up posts, and the slide presentations were outstanding and inspiring. From world famous pros, to unknown amateurs they were all creative and excellent.
I haven’t touched my camera in over a week, thus the lack of an image with this post. This should change by this weekend when I hope to begin adding images again.
