PDN 30 Seminar

Last night I attended the PDN 30 seminar “Transitions: Strategies for the Young Working Photographers” at Santa Monica College. Extremely well moderated by Holly Stuart Hughes, all panel participants were interesting, engaging and articulate. It was great to see a standing room only audience that asked thoughtful, intelligent questions. Next stop for this program is Thursday, March 31 at the Palm Springs Photo Festival. Don’t miss this should it come to a city near you.
