Langara Photography Masters Lecture

Location: Vancouver, BC
Tonight, I was supposed to give a lecture at Langara College as part of their Photography Masters Series which happens every April during the city-wide Capture Photography Festival.  Unfortunately, COVID-19 got in the way.  I was planning to talk about finding a personal style - which I feel like I'm just starting wrap my head around - but I feel like the pandemic has given photographers everywhere a much more poignant opportunity to reflect and introspect on their own instead.

Thank you to Langera for the invitation and to the Schwartz Family for their support.
