Edu

(Edu, as in edu-cation)

In 2006-2007 I taught two quarters of photography to undergrads at Ohio University’s School of Visual Communication as part of my Knight Fellowship.

To all the talented students whom I had the pleasure of meeting, thanks for making my teaching experience such a joy and wonder.

And…

I’ll let you in on a secret to success as a professional photographer:
Keep making photographs, all the time, every day.

Make it a part of your life.
Even if you don’t have any photo classes next quarter,

– create self-assignments,

-create a photo diary

-make a blog (like this one. It’s free),

-come show me what you’re working on. I love to look at pictures.

Competition is fierce. If you’re making photographs all the time, it’ll be a lot easier once you hit the real world.

I kept a few of my favorite multimedia presentations from those great students. Wish I could have kept them all but my personal server space is getting to be a crowded place;)

Thanks again and keep in touch.
