I’m happy to announce, somewhat belatedly, that I’ll be leading another photographic workshop for The Camera Store in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, next month. This weekend workshop will run from July 29-31 and will be held on the rodeo and pow-wow grounds of the Tsuut’ina Nation, about a 20 minute drive from Calgary. This will be the tribe’s 42nd Annual Rodeo and Pow-wow and will offer a great array of photographic potential. Beside the rodeo and pow-wow there will be craft works for sale, Indian stick games to witness and wonderful people watching opportunities. As with any native pow-wow there are stipulations regarding what one might not be allowed to photograph and this will be explained prior to the workshop. Like any other event which offers cultural activities, one always needs to exhibit respect for others. Asking permission before photographing is always a good thing to do. Consider yourself always in someone else’s back yard and conduct yourself accordingly. I’m looking forward to this gathering.

The workshop will be open for a maximum of 15 students and I believe there are some openings presently available. I’ve done workshops for The Camera Store now for three and it’s always a great experience for me. And anytime you’re in Calgary a stop at the The Camera Store is strongly suggested. A great store with a wonderfully helpful staff.
