Our reviewer for February will be Mark Crase from Paul’s Photo and the Creative Photo Academy.
Mark is an avid photographer with more than 30 years experience capturing images around the Southland, across the country and around the world. He is a professional educator, and teaches our Intermediate series at Creative Photo Academy. Mark’s great appreciation for the art of photography, and for the work of the masters who have influenced it, are readily evident in the passion he shows for his work and his classroom presentations. He enjoys nothing more than sharing that passion with his students.
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the snow on the mountain's rim,
I am the laughter in children's eyes,
I am the sand at the water's edge,
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle Autumn rain,
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the star that shines at night,
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.
John, we will miss you.
Help support your local camera store!
We are lucky enough to have 2 great full service camera stores that are local to our members.
Before buying on-line or from some chain store, how about giving them a chance at the deal. They have always been there for us, now it is our turn to be there for them, or next time you need something now, they may not be around.
Visit Silvio's Photoworks and Paul's Photo for new and used film & digital cameras, accessories, workshops, and all the other goodies real camera stores carry. You will sleep better at night knowing you did your part.
