After 16 years of instructing photography workshops at Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary; I have decided that 2014 is going to be my last year. I will always be a strong supporter of the Black Bears and VSWS. But contact the VSWS web site for dates, cost and times of present and future photography workshops. Many thanks to all of my past participants in my VSWS workshops it has been a great ride and I have gained many life long friends.
