Appearance on ABC 22/Fox 45 on January 22nd

This is something that I should have included within my most recent e-news email blast, however, I had so much on my mind from attending Imaging USA in Texas that I completely forgot.

This coming Monday - January 22nd - I will be appearing on the local morning television news program of ABC 22 and Fox 45, Dayton. I’m scheduled to appear at around 7:40 AM. I will be presenting a print of my award-winning wildlife photograph that was recently published in National Wildlife and Nature’s Best magazines as well as being part of the current Nature’s Best show at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in Washington, D.C.

I will also be showing some other large display prints from my work in nature, landscape and wildlife photography and sharing a few tips on nature photography in general. Hopefully I will also be able get a plug in for my commercial and studio photography services. In a market like Dayton, being labeled as just a nature photographer has created far more challenges than opportunities. I just need to think of a way to communicate the fact that Picture Ohio is indeed a full-service photography studio.
