Society for Photographic Education Conference – Tallahassee, FLa.

I recently arrived in sunny Tallahassee, Florida for the SPE Southeast Regional Conference. I’ll be blogging “live” from the conference as it evolves.

I took a walk downtown before registration opened and was amazed by the beauty of the hanging moss draped on the trees that lined the streets into town. The early afternoon light broke through the trees throwing long shadows across the walkways which made for some good picture taking.

You can take a look at what is going on by checking out the SPESE conference blog “clinking” here. The weather is absolutely beautiful in northern Florida and it looks like its going to be an informative and “fun” conference. It’s always great to see all my old friends and colleagues in the world of photo education.

People are just starting to arrive and check in. Looks like George Blakely (below right) has the registration logistics under control.

Three Photo Students from Daytona are the first to Register for the Conference.
