    William Weeks is an excellent instructor. He took the time to review with me my basic camera functions and taught me the best settings for portrait photography. I thoroughly enjoyed the class and working with him. I hope to attend many more.

    I am originally from Memphis, Tennessee but currently call Atlanta home. The desire to utilize my photography skills in my hometown had been lingering within me for quite some time, ranging from capturing portraits to documenting the essence of the city through street photography. With a clear vision in mind, my objective was to immerse myself in photography as much as possible during my brief two-day visit to Memphis. I connected with Coco, a promising model based in Memphis.

    We recently moved to Memphis TN from Vancouver British Columbia and used the opportunity for a extended trip through the western US. While overnighting in Flagstaff, some locals suggested a diversion to Monument Valley - and as you can see it was totally worth it!

    I took this image on Nov. 2, 2021 at 7 am on Nov. 2, 2001 at 7 am. As I was driving around the Cove I came upon this Buck as I came up over a rise. I had a feeling that he was about to cross the road. My hunch was right. He crossed one fence and eventually crossed the other one. I was ready for his movement. I took a series over shots. It was very exciting.Canon EF 100-400 f4.5 - 5.6L ISO 4,000 f8 1/200s

    Title or Location: Pinson Mounds in Jackson Tennessee
    I am a semi-pro photographer and enjoy many types of photography. It was a lovely spring day so I decided to go for a hike with my Nikon zf at nearby Pinson Mounds. Pinson Mounds is one of two archaeological parks in Tennessee and is a National Historic Landmark. It compromises a prehistoric Native American complex of 17 mounds and is the largest complex of Middle Woodland mounds in the US founded around 500 AD. I had just bought a Laowa 100 mm macro lens and I had a wonderful experience th

    Title or Location: Stub Stewart State Park Hilltop area
    This was the day of famous Northern Lights visible in most of the North America. Stubs Stewart is the most ideal dark area for star gazing so I reached there around 11pm. As expected, it was full of enthusiasts. The lights were predicted to be at peak between 10pm - 2am. Around 2pm, when we though the "show was over", the lights started getting incredibly bright, and that is when this picture was taken. Interestingly, the lights were bright in some regions and other regions were faded enough to

    Title or Location: Tacking Point Lighthouse, Port Macquarie
    Last February, I left Sydney with my friends at 6pm to capture the first Milky Way view of 2024. I was very anxious because I saw a lot of clouds on the way, but I was really happy to see clear skies as I passed Newcastle. When we arrived at the lighthouse, fortunately we were the only ones in the group, so we were able to take photos without any disturbance. The lighthouse light, which was not too bright, was very helpful in filming.

    I took this photo after work on the night of Friday 5-10-24. I was seeing posts about people seeing the northern lights as low as Oklahoma. I went home and grabbed my camera and equipment and went to Vancouver Lake not sure if I could capture anything. I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to capture photos. This is just one of many pleasant surprises from that evening, enjoy.

    Photo of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) taken on New Brighton promenade on Friday 10th May 2024 (around 11:53pm) - the night when the Northern Lights was visible from much of the UK.I'd be thinking of heading out to try and catch a photo of the Northern Lights for the past few weeks as had seen notifications on various apps and on Facebook that there might be a chance of seeing them. I finally decided to go out and see if I could see them on that evening, and I was extremely lucky tha
