Too many great things to attend – so rather than a periodic listing of calendar items, I’ve decided to create a new category within which to note events of importance to my readers: APPROACHING EVENT. Remember to check it periodically to ensure you don’t miss out on a valuable experience, and an opportunity to learn, meet your peers and your industry. Book hotels early, register well before deadline, and travel safe!

MVS & David Burnett Guests on 7/21

This weekend’s installment of Photo Talk Radio hour, live at 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. PDT, will have photojouralist David Burnett and myself as (separate) guests during this hour-long radio show. David is a founding member of Contact Press Images and it is an honor to share the program with him.

From the home page you can click on the flashing bar to listen in to the live broadcast, and call with questions for David or myself if you wish.

The show will be archived.

You can listen to my first visit with Howard Lipin and Michael Garcia, hosts of Photo Talk Radio, from 5/5/07 by clicking on the archives link here. My segment begins about 15 or 20 minutes into the show, if my memory serves me!
