View Full Version : Jeff and Carolle Dachowski in Wichita!

03-24-2008, 04:23 PM
Wichita is a boomin' Cowtown!

As president of Greater Wichita Professional Photography Association, (hereafter known as GWPPA) I present:


After having Jeff here last fall, our GWPPA affiliate felt we needed more, more, MORE! So, Jeff is bringing Carolle and we'll GET more.

We also wish to invite you to come down, up or over to join us for a full 8 hours of learning with them. Wichita has some great architecture to use for our backdrops as well as city lights within walking distance of our location.

The program has been approved through PPA's continuing ed so if you're a PPA member, you will get a merit for attending.

We have tons of places here for outdoor photography and maybe, with our wind, more of a challenge than many places. Let's see what can be done!

Models will be provided and a class limit has been suggested at around 23 so call soon to register and prepay.

If many are interested from very far away, I can work on a hotel group discount, just let me know soon.

Oh man, guys.... I'll throw some more fire on this tread.... the workshop with the Dachowski's was really great. I'm not afraid to shoot in mid-day sun anymore! I know what to do with the sunlight now!

Here's the maps for the road trip in, guys. Parking is in back and on side streets, a little parking is in front.

Address for you GPS junkies (these maps came from my Delorme gps map system) is 1425 W Douglas, Wichita, KS 67213. My building is being renovated (YEA!!) so look across the street for the Nu-Way restaurant. The white of the building is quite the reflector in my studio!!


from a distance:


on your way


You're HERE!


These magnify a little better if you cut and paste them into photoshop but you may find you like your own maps better. If you want a bigger version of these, just holler, I'll email them to you.

We have a few more spots, CALL!

I'm jealous! You guys are going to have so much fun and learn so much! That sounds like a great seminar too - the twilight shooting lessons - I would love to be there - unfortunately, I need to start working more and traveling less for awhile!

Have fun on Monday guys!!

Hey Linda - I just had to ask...Do you ever sleep?!! :) I noticed what time you had posted and thought, "Boy is she dedicated to the forums". Just kidding!! I must admit that there is no way I'd be staring at the computer at that time of the morning though. Hope you've got some strong coffee!

I no longer have children at home, I have two dachshunds who share our 'family bed'. They decided at 4 they needed to go outside and once up, I have trouble getting back to sleep. :) The forum can put me to sleep then...I ended up going back to bed for a short while.

Of COURSE I'm dedicated....to what, I'm not sure!

05-08-2008, 07:24 PM
The Larson box showed up today! It's complete with plenty of catalogs, coupons for percentages off and order forms!

Man, am I going to be able to SLEEP???

Well, the Dachowski's left on time but got stuck not far from home. They're in Boston for the night, they were supposed to be here at 9 tonight. Now they'll make it an hour before the seminar starts.

Ah, but knowing the Dynamic Dachowski Duo, all will be well! I just have to be happy with less time with them!

Any and all who can need to attend this workshop/seminar. I'm going to ROCK with my outdoor lighting!

Just remember to bring sunscreen. *ouch*

Hey LInda,
We had a great time in Wichita this week. It was tough getting there, but once we arrived we were greeted by such warm folks. Thanks so much.

Here are a bunch of images that I quickly worked up on a non calibrated monitor. They are from the original small jpegs from the camera.

These are excellent! I have a ton I've edited and showed the girls, they're waiting for yours. So much for motherhood!

I am in Colorado right now, enjoying a most excellent sunrise south of Castle Rock.

I have my cf card from Monday and hadn't reformatted yet so found these two to share sooc to show a bit of the complications of photographing outside in Kansas.

Got the dvd today, now to distribute! Sonya's picked one of her and Marcella for me to print right now. I mean RIGHT NOW. Heh, the patience of a skunk.
