Sunday Sampler July 18

Today’s Sunday Sampler is three textures from an old mill we got to visit this past week. The original building was from the late 1700’s. It was rebuilt twice and the current building is from the 1820’s. The owner let us inside – we had to be very careful as many floorboards are broken or could break easily. Very interesting history for sure. Enjoy the two wood door textures and one of an old flour sack circa 1800’s!


I’d like to ask for your feedback on topics/software you’d like to see in upcoming webinars. It’s a very short 3-question survey!

I appreciate your feedback so I can keep producing webinars that you’d most like to see!



I finished the projects for the upcoming “Creativity with the Nik Suite” webinar last week. I also posted the notes in the Peacock Studio today (which include my notes, the images and texture I will use in the webinar plus a bonus set of 6 new textures). Regular $7.50, on sale for $5 until Aug. 3rd (week after the webinar).

“Creativity with the Nik Suite”

Join me on Tuesday, July 27th at 4:00 pm (Eastern Time)
as I demonstrate my favorite features of the Nik Suite
and how I use them in my creative process.

AND…by request…a special webinar…

“Working with Crop Shapes, Borders & Brushes”

Join me on Tuesday, August 10th at 4:00 pm (Eastern Time)

I’ll show you how I determine which one I’ll use and why!

my Crop Shapes Sets as well as my Brush Sets!


(These two images may or may not be in this webinar – I haven’t written this one yet!)


**I had 3 gals from Florida wanting to do a workshop in the Summer and stay in our 2 guest rooms. We settled on the end of July! (Yep, it’s gonna be hot!). I’ll modify the schedule so we’re doing post-processing during the midday and shooting in the early a.m. and late afternoon. IF YOU HAVE A GROUP OF 3 AND WOULD LIKE TO DO A WORKSHOP ON DATES NOT LISTED, CONTACT ME AND WE’LL SEE IF WE CAN SET IT UP!**

Yep, I’m planning ahead! Mark your calendars so you don’t miss our 3rd Virtual Creative Photography Conference on Feb. 26 & 27, 2022! I promise we’ll have another great line-up of speakers for more creative learning! Conference price will be $39 before Jan. 31, 2022 and $49 afterwards.
