Tampa Bay Photo Shootout - Inspirational, Fun and a Surprise

My scheduled Keynote Address April 10 inspired me to approach these dedicated photographers with a whole new program, one that appealed to the inspiration behind the images, the human psychology guiding both photographers and viewers.

I am available for corporate and non-profit multimedia inspirational presentations.  Call for more info. 239-405-2003

Ever seen Cowboy Mounted Shooting?  Neither had I, but I was invited to lead the workshop.  Check out the video!


NYC - 67th Floor WTC - Artist Todd Stone: Witness

Established watercolorist Todd Stone was in his studio five blocks away when the towers came down. Todd painted through the terror and into Downtown Rising.  His temporary studio is on the 67th Floor of Four World Trade Center - an unimpeded view up to the peak of the new tower and straight down into the twin pools.  Even the 360 degree view -- WTC tower to the Statue of Liberty on the other side -- could not upstage the power of his humanist interpretation of the American horror and rising from the ashes. We met Todd and his wife, Lori, in Down Dog at Guardian Mary Barley’s home in Islamorada, another testament to the power of friendships. www.ToddStone.com

It’s not Everglades, but like Guardians of the Everglades, it’s about the power of a personal story interpreted by an artist.
