Hi, Can I Help You With Your Camera?

Hi everyone, whether it is along picturesque Plant Street in Winter Garden, FL, a Central Florida theme park, or somewhere around the globe, when I see people struggling with their camera I ask myself why isn’t there a single way to help them. Unless I’m pressed for time, I’ll offer assistance, and then find out that they just acquired their camera either by purchase or receiving it as a gift (before taking the trip of a lifetime). At that point I’ll show them some basic settings and try to get them on their way.

But there an easier way, Photo Coaching by Mark. We spend three hours walking and talking about how to use your camera. It has always been my opinion that people learn by doing, not by sitting in a darkened room watching a glorified slide show. Though I am partial to Plant Street in Winter Garden, FL, I am willing to meet you in other photogenic locations.

There are three options on how we will work together to improve your photographic skills:
1. One on one.
2. You, me and a friend of your’s (discount for two person).
3. Just going over your camera settings (this is a one on one talk, not a walk).

Please visit Photo Coaching by Mark for more info and to sign up today.

I can’t wait to coaching you to photographic success.

Coach Mark

I spent the most of 1988 Democratic National Convention covering the “official” protest area across the street from CNN Center in Atlanta. The only time I would leave the area was when there was nothing going on in the area, or a rally/protest was happening somewhere else in the city.

The man leaning against the steel beam was present during the majority of the rallies and speeches in the protest area. He never took notes, no obvious camera, and generally tried to just blend in with the media. During downtime some reporters would ask who he was, or who he was with, and he always said he didn‘t want to be interviewed. Eventually reporters just stopped talking to him.

Was he a government employee, who knows. Was he a reporter, who knows. Was he simply a curious person, again, who knows. I just love how for just a few seconds, everything came together so I could capture this photo.

Changes in life and my time.

Hello loyal readers. Yes, it has been a while since I posted, lots of stuff going on, and unfortunately I haven’t been able to update lepowphoto.com as often as I want.

No, I am not going to make a blanket, “I promise to post more” type of post, but in my mind, I have at least a dozen photo centric posts to publish.

Plus, now that I am no longer teaching photography for Crealdé, I want to finally post “how-to’s” and more photography 101 types of tips that I can pass along from a career that spans 37 years.

So, please be patient, and yes, new posts are coming, eventually. Ok, maybe in the next few days.
