Exciting times come with Spring. I am always another year older and no wiser, but still filled with the enthusiasm for creating new work for myself, teaching workshops, and making new friends. Sue and I also celebrated our 12th anniversary on April Fools Day!

In January I helped out at the Gina Weston Gallery booth at Photo LA. It was a great experience that I hope to have again at Photo SF in July. This time I will have my own prints and a few select Brett Weston's available for purchase. It is a great place to meet people and to see lots of photographs so come visit us.

In March Kim, Gina, Erica and I spent three days visiting the Getty in Los Angeles. This is an incredible museum with a first rate photographic facility in which we were given a tour conducted by our friend Brett Abbott. In addition to a show of their recently acquired Brett Westons, there was an incredible show of masterworks from the Getty collection curated by Weston Naef.

Erica and I also visited the Huntington Library which houses the best collection of Edward Weston's work. In addition to the fine gardens, I was able to see a rare Steichen painting showing in their American Painting gallery.

On March 29th I had an opening for a show of recent works along with my painter friend, Annie Waters, at her studio/gallery in downtown Phoenix. In addition to a new series of black & white abstractions, I showed new color work and a set of pinhole photographs. I also had several of my wire and found object sculptures on display.

I just attended the Platinum Workshop at Wildcat taught by Kim Weston and Ryuijie. It has been years since I've done any platinum work and this workshop was a great one. If you have any interest in the platinum process, this is the workshop for you with two more scheduled this year.

The next workshop I teach with Kim at Wildcat is the 8x10 Large Format Workshop on May 22nd, 23rd, and 24th. Come join us and use our new Arca-Swiss 8x10 cameras. To enroll contact:

Workshops at Wildcat Hill with Kim and Gina Weston are always a treat. Working around Edward Weston's old home is still magical. Kim and Gina are great hosts and the photographic atmosphere is contagious. Make sure you visit and check out all the workshops that are available. Most fill up early, so don't delay.

Don't forget the two Weston/Efros Scotland workshops in August/September. These will be great and there are a few spaces available, but filling fast. I love Scotland and am anxious to return there for this great event. Come join us for the fun. Contact: 

There are still a few spaces open for the Weston/Efros Phoenix workshop in early November. It is first come, first serve and all the spots will be taken by summer. We had an incredible workshop last year in which everyone produced a lot of fine photographs. This workshop is always followed by a show of the works done during the workshop. Contact me at: if you wish to enroll.

For the brave and adventurous and for those that just want to learn more and make better images, take a private tutorial with me at most times during the year. Check out the tutorials available in the workshop section of my website. These tutorials are custom tailored to your needs and they are a cost effective way to get better photographs quickly when it fits your schedule.

Thanks for looking at my website and please contact me if you are visiting the Phoenix area. Keep on photographing - its fun.
