I had the honor of helping lead the San Diego Photog Shootout this past weekend, and was so inspired by the creative energy and talent of all those that participated. A big shout-out goes to event organizers Stephen Knuth and Yvonne Lebrun who are doing an amazing job running the group — all the details were top-notch, including the models, make-up artists, venue and props.
One of my goals for 2010 is to do more teaching among the photography community. In addition to focussing on knowledge-sharing and giving back to the community, there’s also a selfish motive with this goal (as I find the more I teach the more I learn). Along those lines, it was a thrill this past weekend to work alongside photographers and community leaders that I admire and respect — including; Betsy and Jeff McCue, Evan Bishop, Garrett Delph and Hanssie Trainor. It was also a treat to hang-out with Roxanne Benton from Pixel2Canvas and Lawrence Chan (aka Tofurious).
