- On Tuesday, October 12 I had the honor of delivering a "Principles of Presentation" lecture at the Caltech Y as part of their Life Skills lecture series. Thanks to Michelle Jiang, Caltech Y ExComm Vice President for making the presentation possible. And thanks to Greg Fletcher, Student Activities and Community Service Director, and the Caltech Y staff for their support! The Caltech Y provides services to all levels of the Caltech community and the Life Skills series is one very important part of it. I look forward to working with them again.

and Sweet People II
"compactspace and The Factory present:
Sweet People II September 10th- October 20th, 2010
Childhood and wondrous dreams go hand-in-hand, grown in the home and insulated by parents. But as a child grows, they enter into different social realms and face other influences. Mauren Brodbeck forces the discussion of different medias (social networks) influencing a teenager’s life, and discusses how a teenager begins to create their identity through these pressures.

Our Host, The Factory, is located at:
912 3rd Street, Studio 204
Los Angeles, CA 90013

Do not miss out on the opportunity to view these art pieces and others at our show, Sweet People II, which closes October 20th. Please call for an appointment.

- From Mark Alberhasky, Photographer, Medical Pathologist- "Hi everyone. Just back from a fantastic IMAGEMA Travel photo safari in Kenya.
No sooner did we unpack than Cindy said, 'Oops! You haven't put out your next calendar! Here it is a little late but adorned with a wonderful burst of colorful courtesy of Samburu tribe women. Paste this link in your browser for an automatic pdf download.

We're already in the planning stages of next years Kenya safari in September, so if you're interested, it's never too early to say so. And in case safari isn't at the top of your list, we're also doing an exciting trip next May... Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands!The brochure will be coming out very soon. We did the Galapagos leg earlier this summer to scout and it was great!

... and don't forget to check the foto blog occasionally. I don't always announce new posts to keep emails to a minimum.

I'm off to NYC for an exciting Mentor Series photo trek this weekend. There's another in Puerto Rico in December that promises to be great, and what a time to visit!
Check it out at the Pop Photo Mentor Series website,

Have a great week!"
