Looking for a way to dramatically improve your photography?

Want to get more ideas for great images?

GPNP is proud to feature Rick Sammon as our guest speaker/instructor for 2016!


Canon Explorer of Light and award-winning photographer, Rick Sammon, loves his day job.  A tireless, prolific and inspirational image-maker, Rick, called by some "The Godfather of Photography," is one of the most active photographers on the planet - dividing his time between creating images, leading photo workshops, and making personal appearances.  Rick's enthusiasm for digital imaging is contagious.  He is a man on a mission - a mission to make digital photography fun, creative, exciting and rewarding for others.


Rick's latest book (April 2015) is Creative Visualization for Photographers.


While Rick describes himself as "evolving," he hesitates to categorize his work.  "I'm an A-to-Z type of photographer. I do it all - and I enjoy the freedom of not specializing."


With nearly 40 years of experience, this self-taught photographer has many accomplishments - and many more anticipated for the road ahead.  As Rick suggests, "When you are through changing, you are through."
