Meantime… A Little News…

Yes, yes, I know it has been a long dry spell since the last post.  But things have been a bit chaotic as the District seems to have launched a full-on assault on all non-academic programs with new rules and requirements seemingly designed knowing we could not meet them.  It has been beyond frustrating and taken a major toll on Dave’s and my time and energy… and general outlook.

The interesting news is that in order to try to deal with enrollment mandates we are now seriously planning on gong on-line with some classes.  A Photo 105 this summer as sort of a “proof of concept” and practice run, then next fall we’ll expand a little and grow our way into more and more starting with Photo 143 Beginning Digital.  For me the delightful idea is that if it all actually works (and some of you know we fought this for years) it means we could teach from anywhere we had internet access… ANYWHERE.  Hmmm, for a photographer with a Motorhome that has some real appeal…

The major news is that the data is in on this summer’s workshop to the Ancient Bristlecone Pines forest in the White Mountains of California.  We’ll spend all but the first night in the high altitude research station which is beyond cool.  To see the specifics on it including dates, fees, itinerary, etc., click on the link in the banner at the top of this page.

I’m also working on several new posts — a couple including some lens tests and lighting demo for this blog and a continuation of the “knife” series on my other blog.  But it has been so busy I’ve not had a chance to finish them or do the photos for them either.  Bummer.

Oh well, I wanted to let you all know I was still alive and kicking.  Now back to the battle…
