Talks to resume subject to the pandemic.
Book Me To Speak

As a speaker and teacher, I have reached thousands of artists, photographers, historians, educators, and environmentalists.

Museums, galleries, conferences, universities, book stores, camera/photography clubs, and high schools have booked me to present talks, lectures, and panel discussions.

I have also been engaged to serve as a keynote speaker at dinner events; a motivational/inspirational speaker for Big Brothers Big Sisters, religious institutions, and other community groups; a judge at photography and art contests; and many other public events.

When not physically in front of an audience, I can also be heard behind the mic on radio, podcasts, and other media.

If you are interested in having me at your event, contact my Studio Manager, Linda Ruder, with your details.

In the meantime, check out my speaking engagements below.
