There is no elegant way to say this other than a great and grand “thank-you all” for all your support, kind comments, prayers and personal insight regarding my heart attack.

Well, it’s been an interesting 48 hours. Last Saturday at 5:30 in the morning I had a major heart attack while doing a workshop on the Oregon coast.  By 6am I was in the local hospital, 6:30 in an ambulance to a big hospital and by 7:30 under the knife in the process of having […]

I wanted to let everyone know that there are still a few places left on my Oregon Coast workshop coming up July 20 – 24.

Autofocus Technique

The fourth of July holiday has given me some time to ponder the last few workshops I’ve taught and think about what I have learned. Yes, I learn something on every workshop I teach- sometimes it is a better way to teach something or a better way to demonstrate a technique- but often my students […]
