  • Two Opportunities for Adam Jones
    We are pleased to announce that Canon Explorer of Light, Adam Jones, will be our special guest speaker for our May meeting.  You can find more information on that here.  We have arranged to have plenty of seating available so please feel free to bring a guest along.  Here is a link to our announcement which will be posted at key locations around town.  Contact Jeff Lackey for more information.  A brief bio on Adam may be found here.  By the way, Adam was one of the first two people in the United States to try out the new Canon 7D Mark 2.  Adam was featured in a review of the video capabilities of the 7Dii recently on DP Review, which can be found here.

    Secondly we want inform you of a second opportunity:  there are still slots available for Adam's upcoming Kentucky workshop in April.  Registration information can be found here.  Club member Jeff Lackey attended this workshop and will be happy to share his experience with you on this exciting opportunity.  Adam is a very popular and respected workshop instructor noted for an enthusiastic down to earth approach and an ability to communicate effectively with photographers at all skill levels.
