The School of Visual Arts in New York City will offer a Master of Professional Studies (MPS) in Digital Photography beginning in the fall of 2007. The new one-year degree program will become the fourth program in photography at SVA and looks to be an excellent option for those who want a program focused on the core subjects of photography and imaging, from capture to print.
The program will be chaired by Katrin Eismann, who I’ve known personally for about 10 years, and who I greatly respect for her knowledge and straighforward teaching style (whether in print, on video, or live). The program will consist of nine 3-credit courses and a 6-credit summer thesis project, including: Digital Materials and Processes; Digital Asset Management and Workflow; Personal Vision, Storytelling and the Art of Editorial Photography; Color Management and Output; Advanced Image Processing; Photo Illustration; Large Format Printing; Studio Management and Practices; and Scripting and Automation.
Katrin’s books (authored and co-authored in some cases) on digital photography and digital imaging techniques are some of the best available in my opinion. They include Real World Digital Photography (Peachpit Press, 2003), Photoshop Masking & Compositing (New Riders Press, 2004) and Adobe Photoshop Restoration & Retouching, Third Edition (New Riders Press, 2005). All of the books metioned, as well as some of Katrin’s DVD’s can be found here. Katrin is also a featured columnist in American Photo and Photoshop User magazines. I have been reading both magazines for years and highly recommend them.
I look forward to seeing the full list of classes, which will be available approximately Oct 1, 2006 on this page.
Hello everyone. I’d like to announce that I recently wrote an article on podcasting and audio, and contributed an image and testimonial about how I use a number of HP’s papers and printers. Both were published in Studio Photography magazine’s August issue.
This is the image I contributed to the inkjet article photographed in my favorite “city that never sleeps”:

I encourage all professional photographers based in the USA who like the online articles to request a free subscription to Studio Photography magazine. You’ll find a link to request a subscription on their home page. I think they do a fantastic job, and the articles are filled with great images and tips. If you live in Canada or Mexico, the free subscription option may also be available to you, but I’m not sure about that.
I am not an employee of the parent company, Cygnus Business Media, but I served as Editorial Director of a magazine called Digital Imaging Techniques (another Cygnus publication) for two years. You can find many previous online articles from Digital Imaging Techniques here. And to subscribe to my personal Inkjet & Imaging Tips Newsletter, just enter your e-mail address in the box in the top right corner of the home page.
Bye for now…
Welcome to The Imaging Buffet! I look forward to making this an informative and entertaining place for anyone with an interest in digital imaging, photography, music or motion pictures. Each monthly issue (delivered in the first 10 days of each month), will feature a podcast, with supporting text and links to items mentioned on the audio program. Later every month another podcast will be added in the form of a TV and/or movie review by Queen B, who plays my wife in real life.
There are so many photographers and other artists whom I’ve worked with and learned from over the years, and I would like to thank the many podcasters who have paved the way for me to be a part of this amazing communication method.
I especially would like to thank my whole family, and of course my wife, Queen B, who is also a part of the show and who has always supported my goals and dreams.
