Frame-a-palooza - 12/2/2022

Linda Bodin, Jim Walczak, Vicki Goldsmith, and I met tonight to brainstorm about how we can offer support to those who are new to printing and framing, or who (like me) do it so seldomly that it’s like a new experience each time. Below you will find some ideas and resources we put together. For a printable or a file to save, use this link to the same information:

Also, please plan to join us for a “Frame-a-palooza” at 10:00 am on Friday, December 2nd at the Old Firehouse Gallery, 44 Main Street, Orleans.  Bring your prints, mats, and frames for a framing party, where you will find Viewfinder frequent framers as guides and troubleshooters for any problems. We’ll have a stash of tape, wire, and tools to help.

I am looking forward to seeing you in person next month, and seeing our work all together in a terrific gallery space.


Mark Buckler, professional wildlife photographer, will join us to present "A Truly Wild Year"


A Truly Wild Year - 12/7/2022

In the last twelve months, and due to Covid postponements, I have packed in 7 weeks in Africa, 4 weeks in Alaska, 2 weeks in Iceland, 2 weeks in the high arctic with polar bears and a few other weeks at various locations within the USA.  In addition to this, I have operated nearly 12 weeks of wildlife photo tours at my home base of the Outer Banks of NC. It was an extraordinary year where I got to spend an enormous amount of time photographing my favorite subjects - African Wildlife and bears, brown bears and polar bears.  This presentation will highlight my experiences with these magnificent creatures with stories from the field and lessons on how to create compelling wildlife images.
