You "kids" out there – 07.31.07


Base Camp is just humming along, MT has only 2 spaces available and FL 4. Josh & I are ~really~ looking forward to the week and thank all of you who have signed up for the fun!We’ve had a couple of call from “kids,” what we call those who are in their 20’s, asking about Base Camp. Their one problem, they’re just starting out and simply don’t have the funds to pay for the whole week tuition, lodging and travel. One of Sharon & my goals for Base Camp is to help you young “kids’ out there get started and help further along your wildlife photography. So here’s what we’re going to do since we just hate not helping out kids.

WRP is going to provide a scholarship for one “kid” for each Base Camp which will cover half their tuition costs. In order to take advantage of this, you’ll need to jump through a couple of hoops. You’ll need to email us with a brief description of your needs, have a website where we can see some of your images, and provide some information on your experiences and equipment that you have. With this information, we’ll be able to let you know if we can help you out. We’re working on some other things so hopefully we can help out even more “kids” in the future.

We’re also VERY pleased to announce that our good friends and supporters at NAPP have made available to each camper a copy of Scott Kelby’s (the Badger) new “The Photoshop CS3 Book for Digital Photographers” as well as his most excellent “The Digital Photography Book.â€? It’s with support like this that will make Base Camp one heck of an experience for all!

We have a whole bunch more “fun” stuff planned for campers, so we’ll post when they’re official.
