Workshop with Penny De Los Santos


I’ve been looking forward to today for many weeks now, as soon as I heard that Penny De Los Santos (National Geographic photographer as well as a significant contributor to Savuer) was coming to Seattle to give a talk on her work and food photography. It’s an early Christmas present for me. Last night, I had the pleasure of meeting of meeting Penny at an informal potluck welcoming her to Seattle, and she shared a few of her stories while we sat around on couches and a fire twinkled behind her. I could have sat there for hours listening to Penny. She is a delight, and I found myself quickly caught up in her passion. It’s exactly what I needed to inspire me and get me to think about my work in a new light… something I think we all need now and then.

I’ll have more on the today’s workshop later in the weekend, but until then, you should check out some of Penny’s work.

    Wow, the world is small. I met Penny when she was doing graduate work at Ohio University. I was “off” of photography at that time, but I’ve always wondered what she was up to. She’s done some great stuff. Can’t wait to read about the workshop. From the very little time I spent with her, I remember that she is a wonderful, authentic soul.
