The Palm Springs Photo Festival kicks off May 6th. I have been there since it started 13 years ago. It is an incredible week long event. Take in as little of it or as much of it as you can and you will be amazed. You will find among you the most talented and well known of the photographers on the planet. Not to be missed! See you there! Check it out!
Last night another great program at the Palm Springs Photo Festival. This time a panel discussion including photographer Douglas Kirkland. A man I find especially intriguing because of his overwhelming enthusiasm and excitement even at now 80 years old. Douglas Kirkland has photographed on the sets of over 100 of the most iconic movies, photographed the most famous people on the planet around the world, and been his photo features in endless magazines. His photographs are among the most famous from people like Marilyn Monroe to this wonderful photograph of actress and star Ann Margret.
The Palm Springs Photo Festival is an incredible week long event inclusive of workshops, seminars, presentations, symposiums and parties going from early in the morning to early morning again in the night. In it’s 9th year I have only missed it twice. The first year when I was in Columbus Ohio for the ” Arnold” and only caught the first and last evening parties. And last year when I was in Budapest for 7 weeks, myself shooting on a motion picture.
