Accepted.

Well, I’ve been accepted to the Eddie Adams WorkshopBarnstorm XX.

My friend Don Denton tells me that I’m one of three Canadians amongst the 100 chosen applicants, but I have yet to confirm this; in any event, I am honoured and excited.

I am also happy to report that I was awarded the “Best Portfolio” and “Best Overall Image” awards for my program at the Western Academy of Photography in an awards and graduation ceremony Tursday (June 21).

I have been busy, and have had limited access to computers, so haven’t posted anything in quite some time (read: too long.) I intend to keep this blog reasonably current, but have so far not been doing a great job. I still have limited access to imaging software, so some new pictures will have to wait. In the meantime here are a couple of photos of BMX riding.

    David, I am super proud of you getting into the Eddie Adams Workshop. I knew, and was certain that you would be accepted because you are an absolute TALENT! If I were a fortune teller, I would tell you by looking into my glass ball, that (without a doubt) you are going to be able to tell the world the stories of those who need a voice. I was thinking about your speech the other night, and realized that nobody said anything about you….here goes….you have touched us all and made us think and see a bit differently. Thanks for helping when we needed it, encouraging us when we were feeling frustrated, and for being honest…always….even if you are colourblind. I am so excited to see where life will take you, and have all the confidence in the world that your stories will help make a difference.
