Photography Workshops in Dayton

e Life Section of yesterday's Dayton Daily News included an article about the photography workshops that I have been doing, and have scheduled, here in the Dayton area. It's a good article and my thanks to Contributing Writer Pamela Dillon.

The only correction I need to make is regarding the article headline that reads "Local artist presents free photography workshops."

I am not offering free workshops. Five Rivers MetroParks is offering the two programs held at Wegerzyn Gardens - one and half-hour each - free of charge to the public. The first was held on Saturday, July 11 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM. The follow-up program to that first session will be held at Wegerzyn on Saturday, August 8 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM. These two sessions are free and open to the public courtesy of Five Rivers MetroParks.

My full-day workshop set for September 26, 2009, titled "Exploring Nature Photography - The Autumn Prairie Workshop with Jim Crotty," is a program I am presenting myself and has a fee of $89 per participant, payable by cash or check on the day of the workshop. The program, to be held at Cox Arboretum and includes a box lunch, also requires pre-registration. The September 26 workshop has already reached my limit of 20 registered participants and now has a waiting list of about four people. I'm anticipating that this full-day workshop on September 26 will be a huge success and I will most likely present a similar program this coming January or February on winter landscape photography.

Photography Workshop for September 26 Now Full

My full-day workshop on nature and landscape photography, scheduled for September 26, 2009 at Cox Arboretum MetroPark, is now full. I had limited the number of registrants to 20 in an effort to keep the group at a manageable level while maintaining the quality of instruction. However, I have started a waiting list in the event that there are cancellations.

Most likely I will be presenting another full-day workshop in January or February '10 on winter nature and landscape photography, also at Cox Arboretum. As soon as I finalize the details I will make that announcement here on this blog as well as on and

Digital Visions of Photographer Jim Crotty

Favorite nature and landscape photographs, with an added "digital" twist. Subtle, yet enhances the visual impact of each image.
