Through This Lens Workshop Reprise, February 7-9, 2014

We are excited to have the dynamic duo of Margo Taussig Pinkerton and Arnold “Arnie” Zann returning to Through This Lens for another weekend photo workshop.  Longtime professional photographers who enjoyed successful careers, they retired from commercial work and are now teaching photo workshops full time. 

We presented a solo exhibition of theirs last winter called The Ying and Yang of the Outer Banks that received a very complimentary, full-page review by Blue Greenberg, local art critic, at

I attended a good portion of Margo and Arnie’s workshop last year and was really impressed.  As I wrote in one of my blogs:

Photographers can be a hearty lot - Snow, freezing roads, slush, ice-cold rain - all pretty unpleasant stuff, but for the two workshops held at Through This Lens presented by Margo Taussig Pinkerton and Arnold Zann AKA Barefoot Contessa Photo Adventures - or Margo and Arnie as they are less formally known - the weather was barely a hindrance … In fact, Sunday, the students spent the morning at Duke Gardens shooting the frosty remnants of the snow and ice. After a couple of hours with their cameras, they returned to the gallery to edit and share their work during a compassionate but honest critique.

These were serious photo workshops and serious students. The presentations and activities were very well organized. The students came from as far away as Cincinnati. I've spent the past 20 years teaching various computer applications, yet I gained a lot from sitting in, between customers and other gallery duties. If you were not able to attend, please take a look at Margo and Arnie's web site and consider one of their workshops. You'll work hard, and be happy that you did.

So please join us for this fun weekend.  For more information, go to
