2007 GAPW Workshop. Browning’s Indian Days
Well, I finally got our website up and running for Big Sky Photography Workhshops…
Finally able to breathe a somewhat sigh of relief now that I am untethered from my computer and can put all this web design stuff behind me. Designing web sites is about as much fun as poking myself in the eye with a sharp stick. It’s not that I don’t like the design part of it, but it’s the not knowing anything at all about HTML code that kills me. I spend most my time looking up the most simple things that take me hours to figure out.
Now that it’s out of the way we can get on to bigger and better things. I am excited though to see this moving forward, as we have some great workshops that we’ll be putting on later this year and into next.
We have some great ones planned around Montana and also a couple out of state around the West. It will be a real treat to be working with some smaller groups of people and being able to focus some real one-on-one time with them.
In starting this endeavor I have learned a lot about who’s doing what in the business and seeing some really great photography workshops out there, and a few maybe questionable ones.
I have also run across some really great resources nationally and regionally for traveling photographers and people just looking to find out more about their travel destinations.
For example I ran across Tony Bynum’s Blog the other day. He is a photographer who lives in East Glacier who features regular posts about what’s going on around his area.
These sort of Blogs that photographers are starting up are tremendous real time resources for not only the traveling photographer to see what conditions are happening, but to find out more about the area you intend to visit. It’s like getting in with the “locals” and really getting to know some of the ins and outs you might not find in your local travel guide.
The network on the web continues to amaze me with how much info we now have to incorporate quickly into our activities.
But alas, it also has a dark side, meaning if I am sitting here typing this, I am not out there in the mix of it all…
