S: Coming on Like Blazes II Victoria BC Canada

FC: Coming on Like Blazes II Victoria B.C. Canada

1: "When you commit, it comes on like blazes". from Art and Fear, David Bayles and Ted Orland Twelve photographers gathered in Victoria, BC, in October of 2011 for a week-long "Blazes" workshop with Jennifer Spelman. For all of those photographers, this was at least their second Spelman workshop; for several it was their third. This book is the result: within these pages is a selection of images taken during that Victoria week. Hopefully they communicate a sense of the energy, fun, and downright hard work that emblazoned our days in Victoria and solidified our commitment to our art. | photo by Alan Myers | photo by Jennifer Spelman | cover photo by Bob Wendt

70: THANK YOU! To Jennifer: It is fair to say that enrolling in a Jennifer Spelman class is to give oneself a special and significant gift. Her students leave empowered by her knowledge, impressed by her commitment, propelled by her enthusiasm and hungry for more Spelman magic. To Alan, Jennifer's able assistant 'plus': Without Alan's 'behind the scenes' arrangements and attention to detail, this workshop could not have happened. His technical wizardry, good humour and daily classroom problem solving made for a smooth ride for all. To Diane and Mel MacDonald for the organizing and planning. And to each of the participating photographers: For giving it your all to stoke 'the blaze'. Let's do it again.

71: Aw, is that it? | Bob Wendt
