As the workshops wind down for the year, there is a sense of excitement growing for the next season of Lighting Essentials workshops. Some changes are in order, and some tweaking of the workshop’s standard fare is also coming along.

We are looking to hire a booking manager to help coordinate the workshops and we are still looking for hosts in cities where there is an interest in learning lighting. If you are being a host, drop me an email and let’s discuss it.

I have been so honored to work with so many talented and excellent people. It truly is an exciting thing to see some of the images that the workshop creates. I may have missed some great shots as I go through our Flickr pool, and if so… drop me a note and I will get them linked.

BTW… we are also very pleased to announce Briana’s dance calendar. “Dancin’ 2009” is a fun way to feature Briana in her favorite element of dance. If you love dance, or have someone in your family who does, check out this offer from Bri.
