So Steve DePino is not only a terrific photographer but has quickly grown to become one of my dearest friends these past few months. One of the reasons I love this guy so much is not only for his totally ridiculous humor but because he is learning to really value the importance of networking and lending a professional helping hand, as we are all learning this. In the not-too-distant past we all used to hoard our 'secrets' whatever the hell those are, really! Now, we have this incredible open network of photographers in Connecticut! Case in point: Steve was asked to do a seminar for up and coming photographers in Vienna in April. Very cool! What a wonderful opportunity to show people what's what and impart everything you have learned. I am so excited and proud of Steve!!

oh but it gets better!

He has asked me to join him in running the seminar with him!! I am SO excited (can you tell?) In the olden days Steve may have taken this opportunity and kept it close to himself and not shared. Not only is Steve NOT doing that but he is giving me, another photographer, an opportunity to shine as well as he knows how much I enjoy talking about photography and teaching others. We've already got our tickets and are both super excited to share in this amazing experience together! Thanks SO much Steve for this incredible opportunity!

Had to do a little add-on for my selfish and totally unfunny boy, Jeff Reilly.

I'm a dork! I thought you were going to Venice. I'm not sure what Austrians say for great but you get the point.
