Quick Hit Monday: Rick Sammon Live;

Good Morning Everybody,

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Ours went by in its typical whirlwind fashion.  We returned home Saturday afternoon and immediately started to get ready for my Master Class which begins today. 

It gets a little tricky on Friday because we wrap the Master Class at noon and immediately jump on  a plane at 1:30 p.m. and head to Florida to shoot a wedding on Saturday.  Then we’re out for 3 more weeks of non-stop travel.

I’ll do my best to keep the posts coming each day but no promises as to when they'll post.  The good news is that today, at least , we’ll have one up on time ;~)

I’m Rick Sammon’s Guest On Creative Live In Two Weeks

Rick Sammon picPart of our upcoming adventures is my guest spot on Rick Sammon’s Creative Live episode happening in two weeks from October 21 to 23, 2011.  Rick asked me to be involved with his project a few months ago and I’ve really been looking forward to it.

Rick also has two other talented photographers scheduled; Hal “Bull” Schmitt and Catherine Hall.  It will certainly be an honor to hang with these exceptional photographers.  You can get all the info and register right here.

A Tribute To Steve Jobs/Social Media Gold Mine

You know, three apples changed the world; Eve’s, Newton’s, and Steve’s. Over the weekend I stumbled across this pretty cool site, Social Media Examiner.  Guy Kawasaki was in the middle of a webcast when the news of Steve Jobs passing was announced.  He spoke for the next 60 minutes about his experience in knowing Steve Jobs and working for Apple in the very early days.  It’s a fascinating listen right here.

Social Media ExaminerThe rest of the site is jammed packed with solid info on getting the best of social media.  Lots to read right here – a gold mine!
