New England Visit!

This coming weekend I head out for a 10-day solo jaunt! First I’m heading to Atlanta for the “Atlanta Travel & Adventure Show”. I attended the Boston show last year, and look forward to meeting reps from lots of Southern locales that I can visit and blog about and write some articles!

From there I head North – stopping in CT first, then heading on to the Boston area. I’m visiting 4 camera clubs over the course of the week.

  • Tuesday, March 3rd, 7:30 pm – Gateway Camera Club in Framingham, “Unleash Your Creativity with Topaz” (visitors welcome – meets at St. Andrews Church, 3 Maple St., Framingham).
  • Wednesday, March 4th, 7:00 pm – Merrimack Valley Camera Club in North Andover, “Unleash Your Creativity with Topaz” (visitors welcome – meets at Trinitarian Congregational Church, 2 Elm St., N. Andover).
  • Saturday, March 7th, two half-day hands-on workshops (pre-registration required) at Greater Lynn Photographic Association. Morning: “Elements Basic/Intermediate” and Afternoon: “Creativity with Topaz”
  • Sunday, March 8th, an afternoon hands-on workshop (pre-registration required) at Duxbury Camera Club, Duxbury. “Creativity with Topaz”

If you can stop by Tues. or Wed. night, feel free to drop in! If you are interested in the hands-on workshops, please email me. Hope to see you in Massachusetts!


I’m planning on some Summer “Intensive” workshops that will focus on post-processing (it’s pretty hot in the Summer, so we can mostly be indoors!). Watch for more info soon!

Also, I’ll be adding Fall dates for “Barns & Backroads” workshops soon! I’ve started a list for notification before they are announced – let me know if you’d like to be added to the list! Email me or message me on Facebook.


Or, if you can’t travel or prefer one-on-one training,
we can work together online with screen sharing!
Limited spots available – book your sessions now!

And don’t forget to sign up for the 4th
