Altos de Chavon, Verano International 2010

When I was starting out in photography many people took the time to show me the ropes me. Yes, I went to Parsons, and studied photography when film was all the rage, but where I really learned photography was from other photographers.  I worked with many photographers as an assistant, some brilliant, and some not so much, but they all had something to offer a budding professional such as myself. I feel that passing on the knowledge is important. Unfortunately my schedule, and travels makes it hard to have a consistent teaching gig in the city. So I take the opportunity to teach when I can either through, volunteering, offering advise to assistants, or teaching a 5 day really intensive course, like the one I teach at Altos de Chavon, usually in the summer. This years focus was on photographing people and telling visual stories. This years class was excellent and was lots of fun to teach. Next year I think I will focus on documentary photography. Anyone interested? Let me know, and I will keep you posted to when the class gets scheduled. It will be fun in the sun, and in a great place. Although, its not a total vacation. I make everyone work hard.
