2007 SPE FALL REGIONAL CONFERENCES: Coming Soon!

Fall is the time the Society for Photographic Education holds its Regional Conferences. Check out these events – come and be inspired by the work of your peers! Most have portfolio sharing if not portfolio reviews as well. I love these conferences – generally about 100-200 people, great networking scale. And the list of speakers below is impressive.

I am participating in my region’s conference (joint effort this year with the Southwest and the Western Regionals combining forces in Tucson) and urge you to do the same. I can’t wait to hear my colleagues present, and see their latest work. Try to attend your Regional!
