Event in Anchorage this fall incorrectly lists me as a speaker
This is a first around here: an announcement about a workshop I'm NOT doing. The web site of the 8th World Wilderness Congress, to be held in Anchorage, Alaska this fall, indicates that I'm leading a full-day digital photography seminar during the congress. This is a bit odd, as I wasn't asked to speak at this event. If you've made plans to travel to Anchorage to attend my non-workshop (and, fortunately, we've only heard from two that have so far), you may wish to contact event staff to learn what, if anything, is planned in the way of digital photography education.
