Palm Springs Photo Festival


I attended the Palm Springs Photo Festival this past March and it was a fabulous experience. It was held at the Korakia Pensione Hotel and I met some wonderful fellow photographers while I was there. I took a seminar with Veronique Vial which was very inspiring (she has never taught before so I thought of it as an extra special opportunity). I think what I like most about it was the casualness of it. The esteemed photographer Jeff Dunas was trying to take a picture of me sitting on a chaise lounge reading the festival's program and inadvertently fell in the pool (I was mortified to say the least).

I was honored that they chose a slideshow of my work to be shown at one of the evening's functions (some of the photos are highlighted above). I of course had to honor my sisters by putting my favorite photo of the three of them as the last photo of the slideshow.

I am very much looking forward to attending the second annual festival and will remember the first annual one fondly.
