I’m just wrapping up attending the class “Copyright and Legal Issues for Media Artists” taught by attorney Nancy Wolff at the Maine Media Workshop, and this evening I switch hats to become a teacher of my marketing workshop. What a week! Nancy’s class has been amazing, we have all learned so much about the copyright law and the changes in attitude about allowing creators retaining copyright. If you haven’t read Nancy’s book, you must. Tonight, Dirck Halsted will speak at 8 p.m. at Union Hall on his book “Moments in Time” about his incredible career as a photojournalist. Many of you know of him as the founder of Digital Journalist.
Tomorrow night, Thursday the 7th, I too will be speaking in the Faculty Lecture Series at MMW, along with a book signing with summertime locals Allison V. Smith and Jerrie Smith, authors of Reflection of A Man. Join us! 7:30 start at Union Hall in downtown Rockport, just down from Timothy Whelan’s amazing photobook store. Also on view in Union Hall is the exhibition “Two Generations: Paul and John Paul Caponigro” continuing through August 22nd. Plenty of reasons to drive to Rockport this week!
