I just returned from the most amazing adventure! In April, 2008, Adobe sent a group of 17 internationally renowned photographers to the end of the world, literally, to the remote island of Tasmania. Our mission was to road test specialized digital photography software designed by Adobe while capturing images from one of the world’s most mysterious and varied geographic locations.
The other photographers were all amazing and very inspiring. Perhaps one of the most interesting being Bruce Dorn, who has photographed in over 75 countries for National Geographic – pretty amazing.
It was an incredible trip – please stay tuned for more details and imagery.
For those of you wondering why I disappeared off the face of the earth for a week…. I was in Vegas for EIGHT days. It was an incredible trip! The week started with album judging where I served on panel of 10 international judges (1 of 5 selected from the United States.) This was quite an honor considering the convention had over 10,000 attendees!
My favorite albums of the comp are by Jerry Ghionis, Jim Garner. and the The Sallees. I also was a young gun – more information and photos to folllow! And finally, I had my Platform class on St. Pattys day. The class was a huge success with nearly 1000 people there. We even had people bringing in chairs from other classrooms. All and all a great trip!Below is a photo of three of my favorite people at wppi, Melisa Slater, Lori Nordstrom, and Deette Sallee.
