We think of everyone who is a part of the Photo Shootout as a member of our big crazy family (we put the “fun” in “dysfunctional”). ¬†If you have been to one, you know exactly what we are talking about! ¬†If you haven’t, you’ll love the fun and friendship you will find there. ¬†Each day we’ll be featuring a little bit about each of our instructors for the upcoming Tampa Bay Photo Shootout, a group of folks we just couldn’t do this whole thing without!
Up first is Jim Caldwell (who has a birthday today!); photographer, videographer, digital guru, drone pilot, mustache model, and long time instructor for the Photo Shootout. ¬†Jim is a veteran of both the Black Hills and Tampa Bay Photo Shootouts. ¬†We’ve known Jim and his wife Carolyn for close to a decade, and he has been a big part of helping make the Shootout grow.
At the upcoming Tampa Bay Photo Shootout, he will be teaching¬†Planetarium: Night Photography Techniques,¬†Fast Forward: The Art of Timelapse Photography,¬†Patterns in Nature, and¬†Painting with Light. ¬†You can see more¬†of his work and his bio on the Photo Shootout site, as well as his websites¬†elusiveimage.net/¬†and¬†www.thefotobug.com¬†(with fellow instructor Fred Rodgers)
