Attention Young Photogs: Start applying, the deadline is only three weeks away. Do not miss this opportunity. That is all.
Powerful photos by Jonathan Torgovnik, one of my team leaders from the Eddie Adams Workshop last year. Thought I’d pass it on, very beautiful photos of hard living in Haiti post-earthquake. Check it out.
Do all you can with all you have, in the time you have in the place you are.

Ever get one of those assignments that your editors are convinced will be nothing but fluff and lame and come back with some fun little images? Totally what I had today, when they sent me to cover a little “Harvest Fest” benefit. Squash bowling, cute kids and cotton candy, bluegrass band, how could you really go wrong?
Also, it came to my attention that it has been a year now since attending the Eddie Adams Workshop (Barnstorm XXII!) in New York… I can’t believe it’s only been a year, yet it feels so long ago. Perhaps it’s because I’ve since graduated, and the hectic nature of school and such feels so long ago. Unfortunately I didn’t realize it earlier, otherwise I would have posted the link to a live stream of the sessions at EAW, which are chalk full of incredible talent, great insight and timeless wisdom… Along with a healthy dose of sarcasm and/or humor. Sadly though it’s pretty much over as of now, the weekend wrapping up and the newest batch of EAW alums will be packing up and heading back to the city for the city.
So here’s a shout out to my Fuchsia Team members from last year and a hearty cheers to those joining me and many others as EAW alums!
Bonus picture, just to make you smile:
Sad, sad news via Twitter… Jay Colton, a wonderful photographer and a great man, passed away yesterday in Brazil… I only met him once, during an intense few days at the Eddie Adams Workshop last year where he reviewed my portfolio, but his obvious love of photography and compassion was still memorable. It’s such a loss to the photography community, and my condolences go out to his family.
