John has teamed up with Jack Dykinga to offer a special series of advanced Vision workshops.  The creation of a truly great photograph is part of a process from initial concept through execution in the field to digital workflow and development of a high quality, final master file ready for printing or publication.  The Vision workshop addresses the two greatest challenges faced by photographers as they advance: plateaus in development of creative vision, and digital workflow in need of streamlining and refinement.  Details and registration are available on the Visionary Wild website,
