Dave will share with us the magic of Burning Man in the imagery he has captured over his years as a “Burner.” If you have never heard of Burning Man, or even if you have, Dave’s images promise to amaze, enchant and thrill. There is nothing on the planet like Burning Man and if you think maaaybe you’ll attend one day, seeing Dave’s photos may be just what you need to get you there.

Burning Man is a photographer’s heaven on Earth.

Student Reviews:

I have been enjoying First Tuesday at Paul’s Photo for over a year. Each photographer has been inspiring, informative and entertaining. I use to go to Annenberg, which is also excellent, but nice to have this caliber of professionals so close to the South Bay. I feel like my mind is racing with ideas to try after each session. -Kathy C.

I consider First Tuesdays a special treat – one I look forward to every month. Not only do I get to experience the gallery shows earlier, I get to hear a pro talk about their work. The speakers talk about their passion, how they found it, how they keep it alive and their process of how developed their style of photographing. Though I may not be interested in a particular style, I come because every month I walk away with a new piece of information, a view point that has awakened my own style, or am reminded what drives me to continue to go out as much as I can to photograph. You just never know what gem you’ll walk away with. -Joy D.
