The Society for Photographic Education (SPE) 47th National Conference in Philadelphia, Facing Diversity: Leveling the Playing Field in the Photographic Arts, examines how photographers of diverse backgrounds participate in the art world today and how these artists are being received.
Maine Media’s Multimedia Program Director, Tim McLaughlin, leads a Thursday Industry Seminar: Multimedia Crash Course for Photography Educators March 4 from 1:30 – 2:45PM.
This introduction to the art and craft of incorporating video and audio into a documentary photography curriculum guides photography faculty through the essential components of multimedia storytelling, production, and content publication. Tim also reviews a variety of “cheap or free” resources for educators to keep abreast of the latest advances in multimedia technologies and industry applications.
Tim and Maine Media Photography Program Director Kate Izor will hold interviews for 2010 MMW summer staff positions during the conference. Applicants should stop by the SPE store to sign up for interview times.
