Happy Sunday! Hopefully you have power and are reading our post today!
This week’s Sunday Sampler consists of some cool images from one of our workshops to an old Chevy “parts yard” (another word for “junk yard”)! A little different than the rusty ones I’ve done in the past. Enjoy!
Two upcoming events to tell you about — not really formal “workshops”, but interesting none-the-less!
My hubby, Dave, is heading to Cass, WV, to the Cass Railroad over Memorial Day weekend. This is not an instructional workshop, but a gathering of some like-minded photogs! Join the fun.
Here’s the details:
• What we’ll do
Leave on Thursday for Friday arrival at Cass Railroad. We’ll be staying in a “company house” on the property (5 bedrooms/2 bathrooms). We will check out on the 28th to head home. We will take a ride on the steam train to the top of Bald Knob as well as photograph other things in the area.
• What to bring
Cameras (accessories, etc.), tripods, rain gear, food (we will be able to cook at the house – not much in the area to eat out at).
• Important to know
Tickets for train ride approx. $59 (2017 price). Cost for house will be split by number of people attending. There is no fee for the event itself – not a formal photography workshop, just a group heading to a great location!
HOWEVER, IN ORDER TO SECURE A SPOT FOR THE ROOM, YOU WILL NEED TO PROVIDE A $150 DEPOSIT TO US BY EITHER CHECK OR CREDIT CARD. Email Dave@MeredithImages.com for further instructions.

And a flyer with the details too:
Contact him at Dave@MeredithImages.com if you are interested. He needs to have enough people by March 15th for the trip to run.
And on Saturday, May 5th, the Connecticut Association of Photographers is having a dinner meeting/program featuring Ron Rosenstock, “Photography as a Spiritual Experience”. See flyer below for details. You do not need to be a CAP member to attend.
Our Conference is filling nicely! Don’t miss out on this fabulous weekend of Creativity!!
This week’s featured speaker is Gerri Jones.
Gerri became interested in digital photography in 2000 as a creative outlet. She soon discovered that Buffalo/Niagara was a great area to photograph any subject throughout the year with seasonal interest. She enjoys photographing all subjects and the challenge of new ways to see through the creative use of Lensbaby lenses. This past year she has concentrated her work indoors due to a foot injury and discovered the joy of still life and food photography setting up a small studio indoors. She also enjoys using her photographs and Photoshop to create new works of art with the application of textures.
Gerri’s images have been featured in several publications including, Nature’s Best Magazine, Erie Canal Statewide Photo Calendars, tourism guides, The Discover-Buffalo Niagara Calendars and several local commercial proposals. Her image of Thirty Mile Point Lighthouse on Lake Ontario, won a national grand prize for the Great Lakes Photo Contest and her work is used to promote the lighthouse through “Friends of Thirty Mile Point”. In addition, Gerri participates in several online photo contests and has won numerous awards including “Photographer of the Year”.
Besides macro photography, she enjoys photographing local architecture, landscapes and occasionally small wedding venues. She also has reviewed several photography books for development by Focal Press Publications. Gerri has served as assistant organizer of the Buffalo Photography Meet-up Group to lead many members on photography tours as well as a member and presenter Niagara Frontier Regional Camera Clubs.
Gerri resides near Buffalo, NY with her husband Phil and Basset Hound, Thurman. http://www.GerriJonesPhotography.com Instagram: gerri.gjones
