I feel certain that these workshops will be beyond the skill level of many who will be attending. Indeed, the very reason to attend is so that one can learn new skills surrounded by others in a supportive environment. Consider joining Doug, I, and the others who are coming. What a great chance to meet new friends, learn new skills, and have fun while learning. Absolutely NO STRESS. In addition, for those who haven't seen the photographic educational facilities at Daytona Beach State College you are in for a treat. As many of you already know, DBSC has joined resources with The University of Central Florida to offer a four year Bachelors degree in Photography. DBSC will continue to offer a two year degree in Photographic Studies. There is a new title, The Southeastern Center for Photographic Studies, ( SECPS ) which encompasses the entire "program". The new Dean at DBSC, Daniel Biferie, is very dedicated toward maintaining the teaching of analog skill as is Jason Burrell who is the UCF Dean on site. Be aware that many on the faculty are accomplished analog photographers as well as very skilled digital camera and Photoshop users. There is the real possibility that SECPS will become a center for the teaching of alternate process photographic techniques in the entire Southeastern USA. Could we have programs similar to those presented by Formulary in Montana? Yes, and in our own backyard! If these workshops are successful then plans are to ask ( no guarantee that they will come unless we can demonstrate interest ) other experts in alternate process to present workshops on a regular basis at SECPS ( for example, Sandy King on Carbon Transfer Printing! ). However, we MUST support these workshops in order to demonstrate that there is enough interest to proceed.
