Special Announcement

Next week we are going to have a very special guest speaker. Brian Baer, the political photographer from The Sacramento Bee. Brian will be speaking to our class. Brian is a “hot shooter.” He has one of the keenest eyes I know of.

He is a friend and a great guy. He is an alum of our photojournalism program and is still passionate about photojournalism. He has seen the transition from conventional analog to digital photojournalism. This should be a real treat! You are invited to bring friends, especially recommended for folks interested in photojournalism.

An added bonus is the inside view Brian has of California politics. This should be a great session!
