OC Photo Summit

Wow. An incredible day at the OC Photo Summit! There were speakers all day and shooting sessions in the afternoon. I was delighted to speak and I was overwhelmed with all the support! One cool thing, it was free to attend the events all day. Saddle Back Church, Canon and others sponsored it. The work of volunteers make it all happen. If you want to check it out next year, the OC Summit is in Lake Forest, California.


I had a great time meeting up with old friends, even if for just a moment, and got to meet new ones!
