I attended the 2015 North American Photography Association's (NANPA) Summit conference in San Diego in Feb.  This is a conference guaranteed to get you psyched up for outdoor photography.  Many nationally and internationally recognized nature/wildlife photographers were there to show their work and give advice to the less experienced.

White Mountain Landscape Photo Workshop https://www.tomgilmorephoto.com/blog/2014/6/white-mountain-landscape-photo-workshop I added a new set of photos today.  These were taken during the week of 15-20 June 2014, during a Landscape Photography Workshop that I participated in at the AMC's Highland Center in Crawford Notch, NH.  The workshop was run by the NH Institute of Art and there were 7 photographers and several painters who were doing their own Landscape Painting Workshop.  The Lady Slipper, the ducks, and the train images were captured in Crawford Notch within a mile of the Highland Center.  The water images were captured either off the road leading to the Cog Railroad or over in Franconia Notch at the Basin.  We caught the beautiful sunset at the highest scenic overlook on the Kancamagus Hway.  It was a week of total immersion into the capture, post-processing, and printing of images.  If you haven't tried one these type of workshops, I highly recommend them!

York (Maine) Art Association Member Group Show https://www.tomgilmorephoto.com/blog/2014/2/york-maine-art-association-member-group-show I'm thrilled to be participating in the York Art Association's Member Group Show in March in which 11 members will be provided wall space to showcase their art. I'll have 6 to 8 photos on display (and for sale!) including this one. The three brown bears, who had just finished nursing--you can see the mother's milk around their mouths--were in Katmai National Park, Alaska. The Show Reception will be Friday, 7 March, 4:00 to 6:00.

It may not sound remarkable but this is worth seeing in person. And not just because two of my photos are in it.  There are photos, paintings, ceramics, mixed media, etc. The exhibition is at 77 Amherst St, Manchester, NH, (http://www.nhia.edu/amherst-street/?src=about-us) through 26 Feb. I have a photo of the exhibition on my Facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Tom-Gilmore-Photography/688863661145937  Check it out!  (I couldn't figure out how to post the photo in this blog.)

The Power of Place https://www.tomgilmorephoto.com/blog/2013/5/the-power-of-place The Power of Place will be a 30-minute documentary film that explores the negative impacts of Northern Pass, a 180-mile long electricity transmission line project that has been proposed by Northeast Utilities in partnership with Hydro-Quebec.  It will run from Pittsburg, NH, south to Deerfield, NH.  Jerry Monkman, conservation photographer from Portsmouth, NH, is currently raising funds to produce this film.  If the thought of elctric transmission lines crossing the White Mountain National Forest and the Appalachain National Scenic Trail strikes you as wrong, then please check out Jerry's website at www.ecophotography.com to get information on how you can directly contribute to the making of this film.  The deadline to raise funds for this project is May 16, 2013, and as of today 163 individuals/organizations have pledged to support this project.

Katmai Brown Bears https://www.tomgilmorephoto.com/blog/2013/4/katmai-brown-bears In August of 2010, I spent nearly a week on a 65' boat along the coast of Katmai National Park in SW Alaska with 7 other photographers.  We were dropped off each morning at the mouth of a river where we spent a few hours photographing the brown bears feeding on the salmon heading up the river.  We'd come back to the boat for lunch and siesta then head back for an evening photo session with the bears.  An incredible experience!  I hope to do it again some time.

New Web Site https://www.tomgilmorephoto.com/blog/2013/3/new-web-site Well, this is it--the beginning of Tom Gilmore Photography--my mid-life career change!  Hard to say where it goes from here, but I hope to at least use this web site as a tool to share, and maybe sell, my photos of nature and wildlife, as well as other photos of interest.  At this point, I have photos from as far west as Unalaska (Dutch Harbor), AK; as far east as Finland and St. Petersburg, Russia; as far south as Oahu, HI; Key West, FL; and Dry Tortugas NP; and north of the Arctic Circle in Alaska, Canada, and Greenland.  It'll take a while to upload them, but I'll get them on the site eventually.  In addition, I'll be uploading photos of the scenic and important local lands being conserved by local land trusts in Southern Maine, especially the Great Works Reginal Land Trust (GWRLT).
