11, 2004 – I've
been scrambling around all week trying to get ready for
this year's GDCA National Specialty which will be held in Ft. Worth,
Texas, from October 18 through October 23. I'll be flying to Ft.
Worth on the 16th, so time is running out!
At last year's National I
had a show booth where I sold limited edition "DaDane" prints
and open edition posters. I also did a bit of photography for commissioned
portraits of Danes.
It was a lot of fun, but I sure missed being
ringside for all the competitions.
This year I wasn't sure I could
manage to put on a booth due to the fact that I spent the entire summer
traveling overseas. There wouldn't be enough time to
get ready, I thought.
To make a long story short, though, I decided to take
plunge. I will indeed have a booth at the Nationals. (Whahoo!) Please
stop by and say hello. I'll be located in the hotel
lobby. I was originally slated for the main exhibition tent, but
unfortunately that fell through when
that only GDCA Sponsors would be allowed to exhibit ringside. (Sigh.)
addition to my Great Dane imagery, I'll also have a portfolio of my
limited edition botanical
have done quite well in designer markets. You can preview
the work at my other web site: FLORIGRAPHY.COM.
For the duration of the show, I will be selling these prints at wholesale prices – that's
40% less than retail.
My New Camera
For you camera buffs out there,
it may interest you to know that I just switched from Nikon to Canon.
Why? Because I think
is addressing the high-end digital market better than Nikon and I
don't see that changing anytime soon. After shooting all summer with
my Nikon D100, the metering inconsistencies in the field drove me
nuts. It was definitely time for an upgrade. A couple of weeks ago
I purchased Canon's newly released 20D and I could not be happier
in some really good Canon lenses, including their "famous" 70-200mm
f/2.8L IS USM lens, which actually cost me more than the camera itself.

Scheduling a Photo Session
If anybody wishes
to schedule a photo session for their Dane, please email me ahead
time to make
arrangements, or just stop by the booth. I'm very excited about my
recent batch of commissioned canvas prints. Many of them are accompanying
me to the show, where they will be proudly displayed. I hope to see
