Ales and Apertures, March 12th at the Saloon

By popular demand and in celebration of Graeme's birthday, we are meeting at the Saloon on the evening of Wednesday, March 12th.

I want to give a quick shout out to David Luria's Washington Photo Safari. I took his very good "Photography as a Second Career" workshop last week. The bottom line (and quoted on the cover of the handout) is "Don't give up your day job". Aside from that reality check, he gave some really good advice on many different types of photography, what they pay, and how to get work. Note that the back of workbook included a list of suggested reading, among which was "Talking Photography" by some guy named Van Riper.

Near the end of the workshop, we had a discussion with local semi-pro photographer Stewart Davis and learned how he established himself and gets work.
