2020 New Beginnings

2020 New Beginnings

“So many things have happened this year,
but she will continue to take brave and faithful steps.
She will continue to walk in the Light even though
she has no idea what will happen yet.”
Morgan Harper Nichols
In my fantasy world Morgan Harper Nichols, wrote this quote for me.
You have all heard me say that I am the luckiest woman in the world, traveling and teaching all over the globe with incredible students. My workshop schedule for next year is exciting, stimulating and life-altering. Amazing artists/photographers are doing more private lessons and Skype mentorships with me. 
Much of my life, I have felt invisible. Art and self expression are making me visible again through a project very near and dear to me, The Invisible Story. This project requires a new level of vulnerability and has tapped into my “inner landscape.” 2020 will see the continuation of this photographic project, and I will be sharing more of the story with you in the coming months.
On a side-note, my publisher, Amherst Media, has asked us to do a second edition of our last infrared book: Infrared Photography: Artistic Techniques for Brilliant Images. Shelley Vandegrift will be joining me on updating chapters on post-production. Our goal is to have the book published and available for purchase by early June.
I wish you all a very Happy and Healthy New Year. Hopefully, I will see many of you at my workshops in 2020.

Check out our 2020 workshops and travel with us to Maine, Santa Fe, Sedona, Chile, Delaware Water Gap and Acadia National Park

Professor and the Student
Many of you know my creativity daughter, Nicole Cudzilo. She has modeled during my workshops for years and was on our wonderful photography tour to Morocco. Nicole called me one day and said Manifest Gallery is having their 10th annual exhibit of artists and their mentors. Let’s submit. For years we have talked about exhibiting together, so within 24 hours, we both had submitted our images.

“A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

What do Firefly Institute and Morocco have in common?

What do Firefly Institute and Morocco have in common?

“Because there’’s one thing stronger than magic: sisterhood.” 
From Sonoma to Morocco! Two back to back workshops with women.
I just returned from an incredible journey at Firefly Institute at Westerbeke Ranch in Sonoma, an all women’s camp. We had a mandatory power outage due to October winds and the potential for forest fires. It didn’t phase any of us. If anything, it brought us closer together. I taught 4 workshops: Beauty in the Model, Finding your Visual Voice, Hand Coloring, and Through the Veil. I am so inspired by the students and their commitment to their creativity. I really pushed their comfort zone, and their images reflected how deeply they went. Check out Firefly’s website. Also, I had the privilege of teaching with Nat Geo’s Annie Griffiths for the second year in a row. Annie started Ripple Effects Images, a nonprofit telling remarkable stories about women around the world. What an inspiring woman, check out her Wikipedia page, and learn more about her stories.
The second all-women workshop is our Morocco workshop which begins this coming weekend. It was not intentionally an all woman workshop but that is how it turned out. We sold out with women in their 20’s to women in their 80’s. I can only imagine how we will all encourage and support one another. Can’t wait to share images when Shelley and I get back.
