We all enjoyed Rick Sammon's presentation at his seminar at the Plantation in November, and his 3 day workshop in June so much we asked him to come back in August for another workshop! Here are some details of our weekend together, the weather may dictate some changes. Rick likes to keep things flexible, the idea is you'll get a lot of one on one, shooting instruction, photo review, and post processing help, while having fun!
