    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Good luck. A sympathetic and supportive supervisor+dept. helps--just make sure to keep them that way!

    Have a look at the new Errol Morris book sometime if you haven't yet:

    congrats - concordia is my alma mater... I hope it's as good a school as it used to be. Who's your supervisor (if you don't mind the inquiry)?

    That is quite a lot to bite off and chew. I admire that.

    The only PhD in photography that I have known was a curator for a major museum. It is quite something to achieve. My Belgian professor of French in college responded to the question of "why are you getting a PhD in French?" with "because they can never take that away from me." Learned a lot from that.

    Good luck. And thanks for introducing John Max to me. Never heard of him before. I hope you keep us apprised of your progress. I would love to read your thesis when you are through.

One of their "investigators" was Prof. Dr. Souichi Kubo who visited the US for one year to study photographic education in the US. His conclusion was that our best MS program was not up to even their BS program in overall studies. IDK if he studied education in Canada. This was in the 80s.

    I have never seen degrees in photographic science in Canadian universities. Most people probably cross the border from an eng. or chem. degree into an american university.

    My own discipline being art history, the courses are administered by the faculty of Fine Arts.

    Doesn't mean I'm not looking to find ways to get to Rochester to visit the George Eastman House, and make a little Kodak pilgrimage!

    Michel;

    You had better visit EK soon or it will be an art history project the way things seem to be going.
