Since this is a busy travel month - Jim is conducting a workshop in Montana - so we decided to pull out of The Fotobug video vault, back in October 2011 - the first year Jim attended the Black Hills Photo Shootout. It includes interviews with many instructors who are no longer part of the event. This will be the ninth year of the Photo Shootout and registration is still open - blackhillsphotoshootout.myportfolio.com Many sessions are filled up, but don't miss this event - last weekend in September!
