Here are the updates!


- Gail Mooney, Director/Photographer/Humanitarian- Gail's inspirational and motivating
film, "Opening Our Eyes" was screened at the Los Angeles International Women's Film Festival on Saturday, March 24, at the West Hollywood Library.

The film is a moving documentary of hope and a gleaming example of following your passion. Gail and her daughter, Erin Kelly, used their frequent flier miles and traveled around the world in ninety-nine days seeking out and filming individuals who make a difference in other people's lives. If you ever wondered what is possible with the time you have left on this planet watch this amazing film and ask yourself what can you do. First I suggest you read Gail's latest blog posting, then watch the trailer, and then support this effort by making a tax deductible donation via The San Francisco Film Society.

In Gail's latest posting of her blog: "I’ve attended two film festivals to date: The San Luis
Obispo Film Festival and the Los Angeles Women’s Film Festival. I can’t begin to describe
what it feels like to have a film in a festival, especially so late in my career. As I write 'late in my career' there is almost a disconnect. That may be others’ perception of me but for some crazy reason, I don’t feel that way at all. In fact, in many ways I feel like it’s just the beginning."


- From Ibarionex Perello, Photographer, Instructor at Art Center College of Design- "Tony, We have another DSLR bootcamp schedule for March 31st at the end of the month. If
you could share this in your next newsletter, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and all the best.

The Art of Robin Neudorfer Newsletter
March 2012


- From Al Satterwhite, Photographer- "Dear friends, fellow-photo lovers and race fans,
This is to announce my new book, "the Racers", which I have just completed and published as a 98-page limited edition of 100 books using the new 'layflat technology' - it's available from me and several galleries for $500

It's also available for the iPad as an ebook with audio commentary to make the viewing experience even richer; go to iTunes> book, and type in 'al satterwhite' or 'the racers' - it's $19.99; since Apple only allowed 5 pages for the sample you can't really see any of the potential photography, so I have included several sample pages from the book below."

Here's the official announcement:

The 1960s and 1970s was a magical era of innovation and endurance at Sebring and Daytona race tracks. Photographer and Nikon legend Al Satterwhite was there covering these races for major magazines and as a fan.

Today his unprecedented collection of images of the races, the cars, the drivers and behind-the-scenes poignant moments are available in his latest fine art collector edition book, "the Racers". The exquisite 98-page layout is a must-have limited-edition for serious racing collectors. It's a limited edition of 100 books using the new 'lay-flat' technology that makes the many 2-page spreads look fantastic with no gutter to ruin the viewing experience. It comes in a custom laser-etched black aluminum box with (2) 8x10 archival prints; the book and the prints are all numbered and signed.

Al's work can be seen in major museums, galleries and private collections around the world."
