Maritime photographer, Charlene Williams, visits!

Charlene Williams is a wonderful art card photographer who just came to visit me! While she normally lives in Tyne Valley, PEI, she is currently living in Beaumont, AB. Of course, we shop-talked past midnight last night! We talked about remote flash lighting, lens use, Photoshop, Lightroom and sales and marketing, all topics which every working pro photographer encounters almost on a daily basis these days. It's amazing how time flies when one is passionate about a subject!
I met Charlene a number of years ago while attending Image Explorations, a one-week photography school held at Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island each July.

Hi Everyone!

Hi Everyone!

I am constantly being asked to hold two very popular classes:
1) Taking the Mystery Out of Digital Cameras
2) Mastering Photoshop, Beginners' Level
Since these classes are held on a "when enough people express interest" basis, I need you to email or call me to let me know and I will place your name on a waiting list. Some students prefer day classes while others prefer evening or weekend classes.

Rodtka Memorial - August 19, 2009

Arnold Rodtka was my son-in-law's (Josh Berkley) grandfather who lived with his bride of many years, Shirley, at Adams Lake. A wonderful man, he will be missed by a lot of people. This tribute is a 10 minute slideshow of the Life and Times of Arnold Rodtka. I hope it helps you understand the kind of man he was. Music credits go to Tim McGraw for "Live LIke You Were Dying" and Celine Dion for "Because You Loved Me".
