Default Just Joined as of 7/7/2009

Hi there,

I am Jim Patterson and I just joined. I got fired up after attending the Rocky Mountain Writers and Photographers workshop in Colorado.

I'm a full time tenured professor of business and i.t. at Paradise Valley Community College in Phoenix. As part of my duties, I teach an intro to digital photography course. I'm planning on writing a Lightroom course as I love that. Oh do I.

I love travel and outdoor photography and have even done a wedding. My next trip is a few weeks I will go to Ireland. Before that, I will lead a PhotoWalk 2009 in North Phoenix.

My website is at http://JamesGordonPatterson.com

Thanks,

Jim Patterson

Well met Jim. You'll have to tell us more about Ireland when you return. Ireland is high on my list of adventures yet to undertake.

Hi Jim,

Welcome to the group.

I'll bet your business expertise can be used by many of us here.

Default When I return

I will post photos from Ireland. After that, I'm going to take scuba lessons so I can go on that Nikon School of Underwater Photography program in Bonaire around Christmas time.

Let's see, I also have a Photowalk to lead on July 18th. Gosh, I almost have 50 people signed up. This will be huge all over the world.

I am a professor at Paradise Valley Community College in Phoenix. I have to tell you my burning desire is to do outdoor/trip photography workshops. Oh, and get better as a photographer.

By the way, I once poo poo'd it, but I've started to get into Twitter. There are some good knowledgeable people in photography who twitter so check it out.

Thanks,

Jim Patterson

Smile Welcome Jim

NANPA will be a good fit for you. It is a great place to share and it souds like you have much to share.

As I started to read your email the first few words alarmed me. To quote "I got fired.... " of course you went on to say fired UPó very different. I'm glad your experience has been a great one. I look forward to meeting you.

Default Photowalk2009 Filled in North Phoenix

Wow, the Photowalk2009 I am leading is all full now! Aye carrumba. I hope this works. I heard a rumor that participants will get a Lightroom Plugin to post photos; I wish they'd contact me on that... we're getting close! July 18th is the date.
