FotoFest Begins This Week in Houston

I’m off to FotoFest today through the 21st and hope to see many of you there. The public offerings are outstanding, with an incredible calendar filled with lectures, panel discussions, exhibitions and more. Our workshops on March 11 and March 16 will be of great value to artists as well. Be sure to visit and get yourself to Houston!

LAST MINUTE ADVICE FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS: For those of you participating in The Meeting Place, if you follow this link you will be able to download an article I wrote about making the most of your portfolio review investment. I cover this in greater detail in my book, FYI.

I will do my best to keep posting on this blog while at FotoFest so bear with me if the frequency drops during my travels (with TIVO set on Sundance Channel for their film series). Safe travels, everyone!
