Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to share Golden Gate Schools line up this year.

Matthew Jordan Smith, Frank Cricchio, Jane Conner-ziser, Mark Allen, Vincent Isola, Michael Redford and Gene Higa.

I've gotta tell ya, it's one heck of a lineup... That Matthew Jordan Smith is a regular photographer on America's Next top Model. Talk about high fashion outside of the ppa "look". Anyone seen his book Sephia Dreams? Amazing!

Also, back by popular demand are legends Frank Cricchio, Jane Ziser, Mark Allen and Michael Redford.

Hard core PJ look shooter? Well Gene Higa and Vincent Isola's got what you need. Let me tell ya that Gene's been all over the world capturing weddings and is a feature speaker at WPPI this year.

Anyway's, if your looking for a class why not spend your time with us in San Francisco.

BTW: Yes, you do get merits towards your masters (or keeping your CPP) since GGS is an PPA affilate school.

Hi Gang,
Golden Gate School is great. I've gone three times. Here is a link to the other Northern California PPA affiliated school. This year it's in Scott's Valley near Santa Cruz.

Hey guys,

Just checked with Golden Gate School (http://goldengateschool.com/html/course_finder.html) to see how registrations are doing and it seems that most of the instructors only have a limited number of spaces left.

If your thinking about it, sign up soon before the class closes.

See you there.

Hey Joe, they've got Jane Conner-ziser teaching painter at GGS. Perhaps it's time for you to come back and see us in San Francisco. I think the food at Mills College is better and safer than it was from wherever GGS was at 15 years ago.

Do you know when GGS will be in San Francisco proper? Give me an excuse to visit my son and almost daughter-in-law.

I taught there twice, looking forward to being invited again one day <s>

But the food at Mill College and the setting was great.

And Marc, say "Hey" to Mathew Smith for me. He's a buddy. And a great photographer. I missed him last night on America's Top Model, but heard he was going to be on.

Betty and I have taught there on three different occasions. We were treated great. It is a well run school. I agree with Jack, the food at Mill College was very good. I gained 3 pounds while I was there.

Jack and Ed, wish you guys are here for this years session. There's lot's of exciting events on the schedule including rumors of the new and impoved dessert bar selection.

Anyway's, it's getting close and there's only a limited number of spaces left. Mathew Smith's class is gonna be totally hot!

Marc,

Matthew's a friend of mine. I know he's looking forward to the school. And he's a really incredible photographer. You can catch him on Tyra Banks "Next Top Model" show. I haven't seen it, but I hear he's always a hit when he appears. He's got a great personality and if wonderful about teaching and sharing information.

Sounds like a great school session this year! Great lineup. Even without me :rolleyes:
