Hello folks, as a board we plan to do fall color events for Sept.-Oct. both as colors hit the mountains and then again in town. I know several people have already explored Sand Wash Basin, some have not been able. My friend and former member of TMCC Cindy Buller and I have the next weekend planned to go from this coming Thursday through Monday. We will be staying in Craig overnight. Doug and I found and stayed at the “Elk Run Inn” in Craig for only $65.00 a night was a good place for a great deal. Anyone is welcome to join us we will be meeting up with several wild horse enthusiasts and advocates while touring around the area all of which are amazing photographers. Former member & friend Debbie Rudd will hopefully meet up with us, and we tentatively plan on seeing horses in the Piceance herd on Monday. Most of you may not want to be out of town this far, or this long, but we wanted to extend a welcome to club members who have been dying to see them, all are welcome. These horse’s terrain is much less obstructed than those on the Bookcliffs. Last year we saw well over 100 horses in a day. I can safely say you will see horses as over 900 are in the Basin. Please get in touch via cell, messenger or on this message if you are interested in joining us for all or part of our trip. We will regroup each morning in Maybell, I hope that if you’ve always wanted to do this that you will join us Sept. 6 through Sept. 10th. Here are some shots from our last trips.

- Looking forward to meeting Mike Davenport this week. I spoke with Bob Ingelhart, local stock/product photographer who’s spoke with the club previously. He was out of town for this class Thursday night, but referred me to Mike who will be donating his time and equipment to do hands on teaching for our requested class on product photography. Similar to Mel Morris’ image of the wine and cheese in the last competition which garnered some interest, Mike specializes in this type of work in order to sell his stock photography. John Barbier, is recovering from minor surgery but will be providing us with subject matter for our project. This is a first time class for this educator, so I hope folks will attend. Hope to see you there.
Just to let folks know that the Dog sled races have been rescheduled for February 17th.
Just a reminder about tonight’s class. We will have a quick class discussion on depth of field, then do a hands on portrait class. Bring your camera. We will have studio lights and portrait photographer James Lout will be on hand for camera and lighting teaching as well. Hope to see you all there.
