The Best Teacher Ever


I went through 19 years of formal education plus innumerable classes, programs and seminars in later years. Over all that time, one teacher stands out as the best I've ever had, Bobbi Lane. She is a professional photographer and educator based near Boston. Ten years ago, I took her intensive week-long course in portrait photography at the Maine Media Workshops, where  I've received most of my training. She blew me away. I learned more than I can describe. To use a common expression, the program took my photography to a new level and, in some ways, changed my life.

She was in St. Louis last night doing a program on portrait lighting sponsored by Fujifilm cameras. It was such a delight to see her again. If you are serious about photography and ever have a chance to take one of her workshops, you owe it to yourself to go.

Quite a tribute, Bob!

I nearly bought a Fujifilm camera a decade ago, but realised that it would be smarter to stick with Canon. I will check out her work now.

That's the thing about everything in life Bob, there's always room for improvement ☺ I think I can remember you telling us about the course in Maine, if I remember rightly it was back when Birdman was still with us!
