Seattle in Our Sights!
April 12, 2012  Author:   (4)

The Great Northwest is exactly that – a true treasure of boundless beauty, commerce, culture and sometimes challenging climate. We here in Missoula, MT consider Seattle one of our major metropolitan neighbors – a short eight-hour drive over three states, three mountain passes and the spectacular Columbia River Gorge.  Seattle is a bustling and lively […]

Bismarck Weekend Assignment
March 23, 2012  Author:   (1)

Sneaking this one in just under the 5 o’clock-on-Friday-wire! We received one image from our homework assignment given at the Bismarck Weekend. We are grateful for your submission, Rose Klein!! Even though it makes us want spring to arrive in Missoula like it has (apparently) in Bismarck! Here’s what Rose had to say about her […]

Across the Great Divide…to Billings!
March 22, 2012  Author:  

Montana is the fourth largest state in the Union in terms of land mass, and if you’ve ever driven its breadth from east to west or vice versa – over 600 miles in all – you would know that it’s definitely one long haul and includes climbs over several mountain ranges including the Continental Divide. […]

Woops!  Looks like someone was too excited about St. Patrick’s Day on Friday and completely forgot to post the results from the Boise Photo Weekend. My apologies to our contributors.  Looks like there is no pot o’ gold at the and of the rainbow for this blogger.    

Thank You Bismarck!!!

Whoa!  Things must be getting serious between RMSP and Bismarck, ND. They just spent their first holiday together! Alright … we know that sounds like gossip, but it’s totally true. Our Photo Weekends instructors Tim Cooper and Doug Johnson spent the St. Patrick’s Day weekend in the fantastic town of Bismarck, North Dakota, where they […]

Austin Unplugged?
March 12, 2012  Author:  

Missoula, Montana was described to me by a friend a few years ago as what Austin, Texas was in the 70’s.  I don’t know much about Austin but I find Missoula to be an upbeat place filled with people who are committed to living their lives to the fullest. Passion flows through the active lifestyles of the […]

Hey Boise … Thanks!

In the grand scheme of things, Boise, Idaho and RMSP headquarters in Missoula, Montana are practically next door neighbors, and this means that our neighborhood is A-OK!! So, we’d like to give a huge shout out to our neighbors in Boise that attended our Photo Weekend this weekend. Tony and Doug had a blast and […]

Atlanta Assignment Result
  Author:   (4)

Well, as it turns out I neglected to post the photo that came in last week from a participant in our Atlanta Photo Weekend. Maybe it was the sunny weather we had here in Missoula on Friday or maybe it was the … nope … it was definitely the sun that had me thinking about […]

Albany on the Agenda!
March 7, 2012  Author:  

It seems as if we’re bound and determined to visit state capitals this Photo Weekends season and Albany, New York is no exception. This is the first time visiting this fair city, and so far our reception has been enthusiastic and with open arms! One of the oldest English settlements of the original 13 U.S. colonies, […]

Birmingham Assignment Result … and a slight change.
March 2, 2012  Author:   (2)

Let’s hear it for Birmingham Weekend participant Ron Clemmons for turning in his “homework” from the assignment given at the weekend. Ron, you definitely get an A+ … not just for contributing … but for sharing such a beautiful image with our blog readers. Love the shallow depth of field, the composition and the pop […]

Meet Roxanne Duffy, RMSP Photo Weekends Administrator!
February 25, 2012  Author:   (9)

In 2010, our Career Training program students hailed from most every state of the union with a small contingent from the state of Washington. Seattle native, Roxanne Duffy was one of the Washingtonians who quickly became enamored with the beauty, western culture and wide open spaces of Montana. After graduating, she decided that staying here […]

Salt Lake City Assignment Results
February 24, 2012  Author:  

Last week, after our Photo Weekend in Sacramento, two people submitted images for the assignment. For being the brave, committed photogs that they are, we rewarded their efforts with two complimentary tickets to the Bahamas (not really … I just wanted to make everyone who didn’t submit feel the sting for a second or two). […]

Eyeing Indianapolis!
February 23, 2012  Author:  

When we think of the Midwest of the U.S., Indianapolis is near the top of major cities that show up on our Photo Weekends tour map quite frequently.  A big town with big ideas,  big hearts and big minds hungry to learn about their passion of photography. Indy is the home of 500 miles of […]
