Free High Tech Tucks Online Workshop: August 2018

I developed this three-dimensional technique in 1986 and taught it to many hundreds of students during my 30-year teaching career. I also sold the instructions on CD-ROM for many years. Now that I'm retired, I'm offering the complete workshop free of charge. This is a 26M PDF file, so please be patient as it loads. CLICK HERE to open.

Vancouver Island Adventure: June 26-July 3, 2018

On June 26 we left Port Townsend and took the ferry from Port Angeles to Victoria, BC. After spending the night in Victoria, we drove to Port McNeill on the north end of Vancouver Island. We stayed at The Artists Point B&B, owned by professional photographer Rolf Hicker, with whom we booked our photo tours. On June 28 & 30, Rolf took us out in his boat for full days of wildlife photography (whales, dolphins, grizzly bears, black bears, seals, eagles, sea lions and more).

On June 29, Rolf took us to a cave carved out of the rock by a scenic river. On July 1 (Canada Day) we took a scenic drive, on our own, to Port Hardy, where the paved road ends, and where we took more scenic photos and enjoyed watching the Canadians celebrating their independence day. On July 2 we drove back to Victoria and on July 3 we took the afternoon ferry back to Port Angeles. Click any picture to see the whole SLIDE SHOW (16M may take a moment to load).
