It was an honor to be asked to come in to the Mercy Corps’ headquarters to conduct a workshop on photography with their communications team this week. We discussed composition, lighting, approaching subjects in the field and at home, and sensitivity to environments. Here are some of the participants having fun with some skateboarders we met outside on Portland streets.
Two new workshops have been added to the list of classes I will be teaching in 2012: a street photography workshop in Amsterdam April 13-16, and a street portraiture workshop in Los Angeles with the Julia Dean Workshops on June 1-3.
One of my images will be included in the Worldwide Photography Biennial Exhibition benefiting Save the Children and the Foundation for the Comprehensive Treatment of Children Neurological Diseases (FLENI) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. For more details, follow this link.
We just completed a video interview with Dr. Catherine Hamlin from the content I captured last October at the Hamlin Fistula Hospital. This video is being used by Hamlin Fistula USA as well as in Ethiopia.
I am so happy to relay that I have been asked to serve on the board of Photolucida. What an incredible honor!
And just in time to review the Critical Mass Top 100 to request book proposals from a few entrants. WOW! The portfolios are fascinating….such a difficult task.
My image “Asmi” was a finalist for the 2011 Bioethics Art Competition!
I was interviewed for this ASMP Bulletin about the difficulties in securing permissions to use music for multi-media presentations. Thank you, David Schommer, for granting permission to use one of your groovy songs from Bole 2 Harlem for my Ethiopia: Feel The Love video. Bole 2 Harlem was playing everywhere I went in Addis last month!
