I recently received quite a unique invitation. I was asked to be a faculty lecturer at the Southwestern Photojournalism Conference held near Dallas, TX in March 2010. I will be on faculty for the workshop on Friday as well as give a lecture to around 150 photojournalists during the three-day conference.
I attended this conference in 2004 and 2005 and was totally encouraged by the faculty, challenged by the portfolio critiques, and most importantly made friends around the country which I still have today. I’m really looking forward to seeing Gary, Louis, Chris, and the list continues!
What an honor to share the lectern with the outstanding freelance photographer Dave Black (who was on faculty when I was starting my career in 2oo5 as well as my new friend and humanitarian documentary photographer Esther Havens. I am so looking forward to the opportunity to speak into the lives of visual storytellers who “believe photojournalism is a calling and the act of bearing witness to be important.” – SWPJC home page
