Nashville, Phoenix, Portland, and Seattle Added to Fall Swing!

We had so many people calling, emailing, and writing that we were not coming to their cities. Well, we looked at the calendar and added Nashville, Phoenix, Portland, and Seattle. Check www.digitalwakeupcall.com for dates and locations. Hope to see everyone there.


Wrapped Up Spring Tour - Can't Wait Till Fall!


22 cities completed and almost 3400 photogs in attendance. It was great to visit with so many people along the way. It was great to get to know our sponsor friends and "hang" with them for a "cool one" at the end of the evening.

Part of the "joy" too was seeing he countryside and geography as we drove from state to state. By coincidence, we had not one "rainy Day" on the tour - Sunshine every city.

LaDawn and I are looking forward to a few weeks at home. It has been a GREAT adventure and we have had the opportunity to meet so many photographers along the way. The comments have been overwhelmingly very complimentary to raving approval of the presentation.

Thanks again, everyone!


Washington Notes

We had a wonderful weekend in Washington DC over the May 13th and 14th. We actually played like tourists and attended Mass on Sunday at the National Cathedral.

After attending the service I was photographing the interior of the Cathedral when I noticed another guy carrying a camera bag and shooting with a Canon 5D. I struck up a conversation with him to ask about the camera and what else he might have in his bag. I was excited to hear that he also had with him the 70-200 IS lens and the 580 flash and much more gear back at the hotel. So I asked if he was a professional photographer, assuming that he probably was. Imagine his surprise when he found that No he wasn't a professional photographer but a real estate agent from Seattle!!!!

Never to let an opportunity pass --- I invited him to the workshop Monday evening in Tyson's Corner. He showed up with his wife and loved the seminar.

Thanks to everyone for all the wonderful comments. We had great attendance for the whole week.

We left Charlotte early Friday morning to make the 8 hour drive back home. We arrived home around 2:30pm. I quickly touched base with "the girls" changed into a suit and left by 4:00 to shoot a wedding Friday night. Then woke early to shoot a 12 hour wedding on Saturday!! Sunday was indeed a day of rest.
