Northern Short Course... this week!

->> Just wondering if anyone else here is going to the "Northern Short Course in Photojournalism" this Thursday in RI? I went last year for the first time and learned quite a bit especially where I stood as far as photographic abilities were concerned compared to other shooters… it really opened my eyes. The only part I didn’t like was signing up for the portfolio reviews; it was like the Sports Shooters Luau this past Nov in LA but a little worse. I am not a young collage student and found it a little uncomfortable struggling through the crowd trying to sign up. I ended up not getting a review till the second day when I stood my ground and forced my way to the sign up sheet… a little embarrassing but worth it to get some input. I wish they would make it easier and fairer.

Anyways… :-)

I'll be at the NSC, look me up.

I'll be one of three folks leading four hour workshop on sports photography on Friday (the other two speakers are outstanding photogs!) I'll also be helping out with portfolio reviews Thurs and Fri nights, probably won't be a big group lining up for me, I can't hire anyone.

There are a few other from SportsShooter coming to the NSC. We really need to wear some Hawiian shirts and take over a corner of the hotel one night.

See you there.

For those of you not from around here Matt is another great sports photog. I look forward to seeing his Pats photos all season long

I'm with you! I think a DVD is in order here ... especially for those of us that are actually working this weekend covering Spring Training or college post-season conference tournaments.

Best of luck Steven!

->> why doesn't the fish hold a book review for the SS members who attend the NSC in an area close to the bar so we can soak our pride with some very tall glasses of Guiness

Ummm, I'd be happy to, however there are many others doing book reviews who's entire job is editing, they are excellent sources of information.

Lord knows I get my book ripped by colleages on a regular basis, which is why I tear it down and have it reviewed on a somewhat regular basis.

Maybe I'll bring my wife to the bar, she just redid my book, and those who saw it before and after loved her edit of my stuff :0) I'll have my daughter with me, she is an excellent editor (she really is).

After the NSC, make a hidden gallery on your SS.com member page and seek the advice of Darren Carroll. Darren is a great source of ripping, has a great eye, and excellent sense of timing and light, have him review the books online!
