    The last time I presented a lecture in Sacramento was in 1994. There was a terrific turnout, and the audience was very enthusiastic. I'm pleased to be able to offer this lecture to benefit the Viewpoint Photographic Art Center. Viewpoint is a great asset to the Sacramento area photographic community. I look forward to the possibility of meeting some fellow APUG members at the event.

    Hi John,

    I'm a newbie interested in LF. I will be attending your lecture on the 4th. I live about a mile from the Cosumnes campus. Just wondering: what resources, cameras, classes, workshops, etc. are available for beginning LF in the Sacramento region? I believe Cosumnes offers a LF class. maybe there are others.

    Thanks,

    Dwain B.

    Dwain,

    I look forward to meeting you on April 4th. I don't live in Sacramento, and I am not familiar with photographic resources in the area. The lecture is being sponsored by the Viewpoint Photographic Art Center. They offer classes and workshop in the Sacramento area on a regular basis. I know that there will be a number of Viewpoint staff at the event. I am sure they will be happy to give you information. You can also check out their web site: www.viewpointgallery.org

    See you soon,

    John

    John,

    I was at the 1994 lecture and am hoping to make it to this one as well. Viewpoint is a great asset to the NorCal photo community.

    John,

    It would be wonderful to bring you to Northern Michigan and the Photostock event. Perhaps next year? I'm sure there are many, including me, that would love to have you there.

    Enjoy the lecture everyone!

    I hope I can con the GF in letting me go:tongue:

    John--how did your photographs from Gladding McBean turn out?? I have looked to see if I could find any but I haven't. I was at the same workshop.

    John,

    I was at your Portland Museum of Art lecture a couple of years ago (you signed my "Listen To The Trees" book). The lecture was fabulous and the auditorium was filled. I would have a hard time believing a city the size of Sacramento wouldn't supply an auditorium full of Sexton enthusiasts.

    Bill,

    Thanks for the note, and the kind invitation to next year's Photostock. It sounds like it would be an enjoyable experience to be able to participate. Next June is already pretty full with travel and commitments. We shall see what the future holds!

    Thanks for your kind words about the 1996 lecture at the Portland Museum of Art. I had a great time there, and you were part of an enthusiastic audience. You never know how many people will attend any given event. It's always more enjoyable to give a presentation to a full house! Thanks again.

    John,
    I hope the lecture went well.
    It would be nice to have you out here if not next year, then maybe the year after.
