      Sorry Dina, nothing planned for this area. Are you affiliated with any photo clubs in the area that would help promote and support a workshop if I brought it to the area.

    Does this mean you’re not coming to Charleston?

    My name is Mary Wessner and I met you at the CNPA meeting in Spartanburg. I was the lady that showed you pictures of the black and white dying tulips!

    I wondered if you were going to do a Macro boot camp in Charleston or if the one below is the closest to Charleston you will come.

    Thanks so much,
