I know many people think that education and entertainment are two different venues. But I say ask any school kid or any gym rat who keeps them coming back to class and they’ll answer that is the person that does the three Es(that’s Tom Hanks- Tim said don’t steal people’s quotes) which are educate entertain enlighten. David and Shelley do that in spades. What an effective, warm and caring team. They come prepared and they cover the room and they have a system that makes you feel that your money was well spent. Plus they make you feel special. I don’t think that is a gimmick. I think that is a. Generous skill that only master teachers develop.
Another whiny caveat today: Preface- when I think of how many of the people that mean a lot to me are professional photographers, I am perplexed my the high count. I understand what the job entails, and how complicated it can be to be unobtrusive. It is a problem for the practitioner to have a photographer in the room stepping on mats, lowering and lifting window screens to adjust light and hearing that shutter sound close by when you are trying to go inward. I understand the need to publicize but it is an annoyance. End of whine.
Lectures and panels later this afternoon.
