From Chainsaw to Camera: A Life With Trees

Two weeks ago Oregon State University hosted the Northwest Chapter of the Society for Photographic Educators conference. Associate Professor Julia Bradshaw and her team did a fabulous job creating and organizing the event that drew educators from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Alaska and the Dakotas. Richard Misrach, one of my heroes and an early influence, was the Friday night keynote speaker.

I gave a 45 minute presentation on Saturday morning entitled From Chainsaw to Camera, A Life with Trees. It was a lot of fun, once I got over the stage anxiety. In two weeks I will be giving a longer version of the same presentation to ALL, the Academy for Lifelong Learning here in Corvallis.
