Trio Crisol ROCKS!

We had a great turnout at the Fairmount Boathouse.

Thanks to Terri from the London Grill for the awesome food!!!

The Shutterbugs and the Light Room had an incredibly successful fundraiser last Saturday at the Fairmount Boathouse.  Everyone had a great time checking out the Shutterbugs, eating awesome food from the London Grill, and grooving to the amazing music of Trio Crisiol. The highlight of the night was the honoring of Steven Berkowitz, who has inspired and taught generations of photographers in Philadelphia, including Shutterbug teacher Tony Rocco.

Shutterbugs Exhibition with Colombian Partners!

There will be an amazing exhibition of both my Stetson and Colombia student's work from April 29th-May 26th. As the front of their postcard above suggests, both groups will share their perspectives on their cultures and communities with their photographs. All proceeds from the show go towards the Shutterbug's trip to Colombia this summer. Of particular interest is a panel discussion on Sunday, May 20th, alongside organizers and participants from other youth photography outreach programs, including Sarah Stolfa from Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, Robert Morrison from the Project Group, and Lindsay Sparagana from the Goodlands Project.
