    VERY SPECIAL REWARD: An invitation to join me and the documentary crew on a week long filming/activities adventure personalized for YOU! In the New Year I'll be working with you to plan which week of the filming schedule (including the locations in National Parks you want to visit) is the best fit for you. The project will provide all the planning, ground transportation, accommodations (double-occupancy), and entry fees (you're responsible for to/from airfare and incidentals).
    You'll become a part of the documentary filmmaking process by not just supporting this campaign, but by being involved in the action. Location sites will span the gamut of fitness levels, activities, and the natural beauty found across the United States: Alaska, Hawaii, Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, Southern Florida, Mountainous California, and Washington State. This is a personalized reward designed to maximize your enjoyment of the experience. Write me with any and all questions, I'd be happy to answer them.

    VERY SPECIAL REWARD: A Professional Techniques Digital Photography Class, taught by me over the course of a week spent touring National Parks with the documentary crew. If you've ever wanted to increase your skills as a photographer, gain the ability to generate professional print quality images, or just want to better understand how your camera actually works, then this course and this reward are designed specifically for you. The landscapes of the National Parks across America are the best playground from which to practice the techniques of photography. The course will present knowledge of optics, composition, exposure, subjects, time-lapse, and night (low-light) photography.
    There will be a series of choices on where your photography course will be set (the final selections will be based on your preferences and those of other participants): Alaska, Hawaii, Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, Southern Florida, Mountainous California, and Washington State. This is a personalized reward designed to maximize your enjoyment of the experience, so I'll be working directly with you to plan the best possible trip. The project will provide all the planning, ground transportation, accommodations (double-occupancy), and entry fees (you're responsible for to/from airfare, your own camera equipment, and incidentals). Write me with any and all questions, I'd be happy to answer them.
