This March I will be attending the annual orthopaedic academy meeting in New Orleans to get continuing medical education credits so I can maintain my California medical license; I am an emergency responder volunteer for Santa Clara County and the City of Cupertino, California. I will also be meeting with a young photographer friend, Aaron Hogan, who does great work in Baton Rouge. In May, my photographer friend, Earl Robicheaux, and I will be attending the Palm Springs Photo Festival. It is my fifth festival and Earl’s first. We will be taking a workshop with Stephen Wilkes, who is considered by many as one of America’s most iconic photographers. Serious inspiration is expected!
