March, 2004

Forest and Railroad Tracks. Blue Ridge Parkway, Virginia. 1994.

After my first trip to Shenandoah back in 1994, I headed south, down the
Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia. The morning was wet from the night's
rain, but sky was only dappled with clouds. I stopped at a trailhead and
walked a bit. The disappearing and decaying railroad track made me walk
back for my camera. The scent of the wet leaves, sounds of the morning
birds and dripping water stays with me to this day.

We're offering an 11x14 inch print, matted to 16x20 and ready to frame
for $195, framed for an additional $75. This print at this price is
offered through March 31. We'll be taking orders until then, and
shipping them out by April 15th.


About the Program

Each month we offer a signed, original print, at a special price.
This is a great opportunity to own a very affordable fine-art
photograph. Orders are taken for a 30-day period, then printed and
shipped within two weeks after the close. When it's over, it's over.
These prints won't be available again at this price.

Hands On Photography Events are 6 day experiences, in beautiful
settings, that are designed to give students the opportunity to work
with Steve on a wide range of issues. We'll have plenty of time to

composing and capturing meaningful images to overcoming the hurdles
involved in producing great prints.

to work with our images, reviewour day's work, and produce
fine-art prints.

Workshop tuition includes a variety of equipment that participants
get to keep, including a 200 gigabyte Maxtor hard drive, a Gretag Eye-One
