Speaking at PHOTOgraphie

Hi Everyone,

I want to let you know about this great opportunity. I am very honoured to be speaking at this years  PHOTOgraphie Festival. The Fusion Event ( no I didn’t name it after my business but how could I not like it hee hee) is being held at the Anvil Centre in New Westminster. The PHOTOgraphie Festival is chalk full of amazing events. It starts out on September 24 2015. This is where the Professional Photographers Of British Columbia have their Image Competition. You get to witness a panel of  Professional Photographic Judges judge the images that their members have submitted for competition. The judges score from four choices. Unaccepted, Accepted, Merit and Excellence. The will also discuss certain images that a judge on the panel wants to be scored higher or lower! They talk about the merits of the photograph, or it’s flaws depending on how they will try and convince the others! The public get to observe the event and it’s FREE. When I started out a long time ago. I would  volunteer at the competitions to grow and learn. In fact if you come, you will see me there. I have either volunteered, been a Judge or the Judge Chair for the past 15 years.

Over the next couple of days there are Gallery Exhibits, and Micro Talks, a Trade Show, and yes…. Speakers.. My talk is on Sunday September 27th at 9:30 am. After a short lecture inside with an overview of our photographic safari we will all take to the streets and start our adventure of how to view the world with Rose Coloured Glasses!!! That is what I am touching on. It is a teaser, and I will leave you wanting more, but I have had people say it is a springboard for a whole new way of looking at the world. It is just the way I see it and as people who know me know…. I share my knowledge. I have always believed in the quote ” Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. ” I feel the same way with my photographic knowledge and expertise.

Added bonus… Beau Photo is offering a 20 % discount for my lecture! Here is a link to the schedule  and my lecture. If you put ” beauspeaker” in the discount code area you will get a cool 20% off. It is just that easy. I hope to see you there. You can email if you have any questions.  I hope to see you there!

I have not posted for sometime, I have not given you any news of many awards and not posted any of my Peru photos!  Diego one of my guides and owner of Peruvian Soul   sent me this photo. I thought I’d post it to show you what me, photography, nature, hiking and sunshine do…… they make my soul shine!!!!

Oh and one other tid bit. I will be receiving an award at our Gala. I was Chair of the PPOC-BC for 2014. I will be receiving my President’s Star to wear on my Fellowship or on my Masters Of Photography Medal. I promise to post at least one photo of that before my Birthday on November 30th.  I might even talk about a few of those other awards I received this year and never talked about. ( but let’s NOT push it…LOL)


Wishing you all health and happiness…and of course Rose Coloured Glasses!!!
