Building an Ark!

Mid-week here in Los Osos and we are enjoying some much-needed rain. Good, soaking rains this time of year will yield a great wild flower bloom in March. George and I talked last week about the need for a few good storms and it turns out this week is answering our prayers.

Just finished a phone call with the North American Nature Photography Association ( If you have not heard of them or their work, please visit their web site and look around.

At the suggestion of George Lepp and Rob Sheppard, long time editor of Outdoor Photographer magazine, we are now offering a discount on all week-long and weekend courses to NANPA members. Check out our website ( or the NANPA site for the details.

Fay Sirkis is here this week teaching Wedding, Portrait, and Faces with Corel Painter X. If you are not familiar with her work check out Fay starts with a digital image and transforms it into a photo-painted masterpiece. As a member of NAPP's dream team, she is a demanding but very talented instructor. Her courses are intense but by the end of the week the students are creating some incredible pieces. Fortunately for us Fay only teaches her week-long workshops here at the Lepp Institute.

Well, that's all for now. Take care and see you soonest.
