Arnie and Margo started out the year by giving a seminar in January 2016 for the Carolinas Nature Photographers Association Triangle in Raleigh at the JC Raulston Arboretum, part of NC State University. The subject: Creative or Copycat: Make It Yours.
In November 2015, Margo and Arnie returned to Kiawah Island to do a presentation, two-session mini workshop, and critique for the Kiawah Island Photo Club. The subject was "Seeking Your Own Vision: Making It Yours." It was very well received, and we had two great groups for our evening and morning shoots.
At the request of ASMP/SC, Arnie and Margo made a presentation on "Creativity: Seeking Your Own Vision" at the College of Charleston in Charleston, SC in November 2015.
CNPA (Carolinas Nature Photographers Association) asked Barefoot Contessa Photo Adventures to do a weekend. From the reports, those who came passed the word on to fellow members that they missed a great time!
In October, 2015, Barefoot Contessa Photo Adventures gave a presentation at a retreat put on by ASMP/NC on "Reinventing Yourself in the Digital Age" at The Light Factory in Charlotte, NC.
Barefoot Contessa Photo Adventures enjoyes speaking engagements that foster good discussions. We often do them on some aspects of Creativity and Seeking Your Own Vision. In July 2014, we spoke to the Capitol City Camera Club in Raleigh, NC, and in January 2015 to the Sandhills Photography Club down in Southern Pines, NC. And in April, 2015, we gave a presentation on Creativity to the Cary Photographic Artists in Cary, NC.
We were featured in an e-mail blast from the excellent magazine, South x Southeast photomagazine in the spring of 2015.
Barefoot Contessa Photo Adventures was the lead-off photo workshop featured (one of four) in the September 28, 2014 issue of Exploring Maine, part of the Maine Sunday Telegram, one of four photo workshops and tours featured in that special section.
Margo Taussig Pinkerton was featured as #5 on Page 7 in SlideShare's 12 Simple Steps to be come a better photographer in no time that was released January 2014.
Victoria Bampton, also known as The Lightroom Queen, and Adobe Community Professional & Certified Expert for Lightroom, linked to Barefoot Contessa Photo Adventures as a resource for "live" Lightroom workshops. Thank you, Victoria!
The November 6, 2013 issue of North Carolina's Ashe County Chamber E-News gave a nice nod to BCPA's exhibition, The Yin and Yang of the Outer Banks, and weekend photo workshop, NC Mountain Magic, at CatchLight Gallery in West Jefferson.
Indy Week gave The Yin and Yang of the Outer Banks a picture lead in the Arts calendar section of its January 31, 2013 edition. They also gave us an Indypick classification!
Blue Greenberg, an art columnist for the Herald-Sun, wrote about our exhibition, The Yin and Yang of the Outer Banks, in a full-page article in the Friday, February 1, 2013 issue. We were very pleased, as we understand that Ms. Greenberg usually reviews two or three exhibits in her articles. The online version is no longer available. In the paper version, Arnie's photo ran across the full width of the newspaper page.
The Yin and Yang of the Outer Banks by Margo and Arnie was exhibited at Through This Lens in Durham, NC. January 18 to March 2, 2013. This exhibit presented two sides of the Outer Banks of North Carolina, from the beautiful side that draws so many tourists each year, to the other side, the one where businesses try to make money off the tourists, not always successfully.
Please note that the exhibition ran through March 2, not March 9 as originally noted.
Barefoot Contessa Photo Adventures was part of 24 Hour Photoshop, "the first-ever live, global, interactive event for the Photoshop & Photography community, with multiple tracks running concurrently of Photoshop and Photography tips, tricks and techniques, boasting over 100 sessions, more than 50 speakers from over a dozen countries. The event was broadcast live for 24 straight hours," November 14-15, 2012.
In October, 2012, Arnie and Margo were featured in a DigiLabsPro blog with lots of photographs from various Barefoot Contessa Photo Adventures workshops.
Margo was one of the two judges for the annual Cary Photographic Artists (Cary, NC) in October of 2012.
Arnie was the featured ChatterArtist for October 2012 in Louisa Curtis Chatterbox Enterprises. Louisa was quite taken with Arnie's images from our Paris & la Fête de la Musique. We'll be returning there again in 2013 for this wonderful celebration of Summer Solstice.
The February 15-May 14, 2012 issue of American Airlines' first-class magazine, Celebrated Living, chose us as one of the four photo workshops they featured in this issue. If you click on the magnifying glass in the lower left of both photos, you'll see the other images that are in the print version.
Outdoor Photographer featured us at the head of the
Workshop section in their February 2010 print issue. They used
the image below. They also featured us in the October 2008 and July 2009
In the October 2009 issue of Shutterbug, industry expert Maria Piscopo wrote
an article called Social
Media — A New Sales Strategy in which she quoted us. She had
called and written to interview us, but we were on the road at one of our
workshops. By the time we were able to respond, it was so late, so we
were surprised and happy to find she included us. In fact, we found
out about it through one of the Social Media — Facebook! The
article is also online.
Chicago Business interviewed one of our Chicagoland alumnae for their October
5, 2010 article on Snapping Safaris. We received very good publicity
in the article that was also published in their print edition. Topsail-Island.Info did
an article on us on July 10, 2008, complete with photos and slide show!
