Meadowlark Expo Epilogue


Wow, what a fantastic weekend at the Meadowlark Photo Expo. Frans Lanting kicked of the weekend with a very interesting and inspirational lecture on Friday night. The photographs on display by the various Northern Virginia Camera Clubs were humbling and amazing. What an extremely talented group of individuals. This is our first year at Meadowlark after moving back east from Colorado and it was a tremendous opportunity to meet some really wonderful people as well as some of the finest nature photographers in the business. My fellow instructors at Meadowlark Gardens, Corey Hilz and William Folsom, were their and had a booth set up showcasing their fine work. A local legend and nationally renowned photographer, Tony Sweet and Sue, had a booth set up. Tony not only is one of the finest photographers but also one of the nicest guys I have had the pleasure of meeting. His work is visionary and simply stunning.

In the next few days we will be posting the winner of our raffle for the free spot on one of our Workshop Tours. Make sure to check back in the next day or two for the winning name.

In the meantime, I am putting together the final details for the West Virginia Winter Workshop in Canaan Valley and Blackwater Falls State Park. Their are still 2 positions available and it is sure to fill up in the next couple days. If you are interested in registering, please contact me as soon as possible to reserve a spot.

My self and Amber would would like to take the time to thank all of the staff at Meadowlark Gardens, Corey Hilz, William Folsom, Tony and Sue, and all the members of the Northern Virginia Camera Clubs who made the Expo a great and memorable experience. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year. Now I need to get back to prepping images for Media Magnet Stock Agency and put the finishing touches on a magazine article I am writing.
