One week ago, I was in Ft. Worth, Texas at the Southwestern Photojournalism Conference listening and learning from some of the top photographers in the country. It was a great time and I also got to spend some time with numerous old friends and develop new friendships at the same time.
As a long-time staff member for the conference, it wasgreat to see a good crowd this year. Perhaps more impressive was the large numbers of first time attendees. The student attendance was high, but there was a good amount of professionals (many of whom had previously attended the conference).Both Canon and Nikon offered clean and check for equipment and Roberts Camera of Indianapolis and Ft Worth Camera were sponsors.
One of the speakers,Â Scott Kelby inspired me to make a concerted effort to renew my blog. I hope to be blogging consistently three time a week.
