Ed Pierce Captivated by the Light Workshop-San Francisco

Tonight i attended the photography seminar "Captivated by the Light" by Ed Pierce. Ed has been in the business for over 30 years and is an excellent teacher. I have followed him via his Photovision DVD's that come out every two months. A testament to how well respected he is the DVD's are now offered free (you only pay the shipping and handling for the year-$35) due to the generosity of his sponsors like Canon and WHCC. A lot of what was discussed involved in studio lighting and shooting which is not necessarily where i am right now in my business but it was wonderful to see and hear (via video) from some of the top studios in the nation. The last video he presented was of Sandy Puc discussing how NILMDTS got started. NILMDTS is a wonderful organization of photograsphers nationwide that provides free photography services for bereavement photography. This reminded me to make sure i get my website up next week so i can put in my application to them to become a local photographer.
