I don't know if this falls into the member organized thing or not but I would like to mention a workshop I am taking from Don Kirby and Stu Levy during the last week of September. It's at Coos Bay on the Oregon coast. This is a location I have wanted to go to for some time. Many of the heavy weights in photography have made stunning images there.
Since I am going it would be really cool if some of the APUG bunch could join up too and we could finally meet each other. I met Aggie at last years Bruce Barnbaum course and it was a blast.
Don and Stu are excellent photographers and have been doing workshops for years. Check out Don's website at www.donkirbyphotography.com for all the details and a look at his work.
