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!
My gorgeous buddy Gabriella Muttone and myself (who should stay behind the camera) here for the opening of the Palm Springs Photo Festival all this week. A wonderfully talented photographer herself, Gabriella is also a professional model who has been in front of my cameras twice, including last week at the Redbury Hotel in Hollywood. Those photographs soon! Thanks and now I will get behind the camera again.
Palm Springs Photo Festival wrap up of another year. I was there 10 years ago when the photo festival started. Actually I missed most of it because I had to fly out to shoot the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus Ohio. Then 2013 found me in Budapest shooting on Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks – The Movie so I missed that year. But I have been there for all of the others. It is truly an incredible event that has become respected around the world. Having it in my own backyard is just too good for words. So a big Thank You to festival founder Jeff Dunas and all of the people who make this possible. Especially Dolores!
Now a bunch of big Thank You’s to people who not only make the festival work but who are my friends, new and old, and make my photography work too. They are, to just name a few… Amy Kawadler from Canon, Bob Wilde from Samy’s Camera, Matthew Frary from Hasselblad Bron, Marty Glickmanfrom MAC Group, Dan Cuny from Profoto USA, Barney Tong from FujiFilm, R Mac Holbert with Epson, Heidi Goverman from Workbook.
There are endless numbers of more people who I see every year as well, new and old friends who I must say great seeing you each time. And to those of you who I routinely forget your names, my sincerest apologies, nothing I mean to do, I try my best. I hope to see you next year too or sooner! Thank You!
Epson says I am “in focus” so it must be true! Tweeted by Epson last night at the Palm Springs Photo Festival as I was interviewed about the latest Epson printer and the prints on display at the big event party. http://bit.ly/1FAh8Cl
Are you here for the Palm Springs Photo Festival? When you have extra time, go on over to the Palm Springs Air Museum to catch the last week of “Manzanar – The Wartime Photographs Of Ansel Adams”. It really is a wonderful exhibit and of course there is much at the Air Museum to entertain your camera!
Starting this afternoon you will find me for much of the week at the Palm Springs Photo Festival. I will still be filling day time hours with photo editing and my usual photography tasks. If you are going to be at the Photo Festival and want to say Hi, send me a text on my cell at 213-712-1929. Great Fun!
To all my photographer friends; are you coming out here for the Palm Springs Photo Festival starting Sunday? If you are and happen to be coming in on Saturday, here is a very fun photo op for you. The Palm Springs Air Museum will be doing a flight demonstration with their Navy T-28. This is a really astounding aircraft that actually will outperform many of the more famous fighters from World War II. You can expect it to be flying just after 2 PM but there is much more out at the Air Museum for you to keep your camera busy. If you are not coming in on Saturday, you have all week to check out a great collection of vintage aircraft and so much more to see. The Palm Springs Air Museum is very close by to all the Photo Festival venues. Here is one of my photographs of the T-28 and a short video. See you there!
