Hawaii: Teaching and Learning

20080716_beach_350

Vivian and I have been in Hawaii shooting stock images, teaching a short class on multi-media production and sitting in on the teaching of David duChemin at the School of Photography, University of the Nations in Kona, Hawaii.

The students here are full of passion for the hurting and marginalized people throughout the world and are endeavoring to improve their craft to better tell their stories. David (pictured above), a frequent shooter for World Vision, has been an open book and is not holding back any info that will help the young photographers achieve the visions God has given them.

To get a slightly better feel for the class, take a look at a piece Vivian and I did in an effort to teach multi-media production to the students. Click HERE. Make sure and check out the other links above too.

  1. Gary & Vivian:

    I love the slide show. I think you captured the humor of David in the photos and in the audio at the end.

    Most of all you emotionally had me wanting to be there with all of you.

    We need to get David to SWPJC. By the way Chick-fil-A is now a sponsor. They will provide one of the meals.

  2. What a great video! I had the pleasure of having lunch with David in Vancouver last year, and really enjoyed picking his brain about photography and life and so on. I think it would be incredible to see him down at SWPJC in February!

    Great work, Gary.

  3. Thanks for coming Gary! It was a great week of teaching. I really was blessed to have you and your wife come back. David was fun to hang out with Im glad Ive been able to do the school.

    We just got back monday from China. Still trying to adjust.
