Assisting – Basic Digital Class @ Langara with Andrew Tripp


I was recently hired to assist instructors at the Langara Continuing Studies Photography Program. My first class was a “Basic Digital” course taught by Andrew Tripp where I helped setup the lights and scenes and troubleshoot student cameras and questions along the way. Andrew was actually my first instructor in the darkroom prior to me starting the Professional Photo-Imaging Program¬†which I graduated from in 2009.

Happy to be back at my alma mater and gaining some valuable teaching experience.

Great Sites – Padmapper


Looking for an apartment is about as fun as brushing your teeth with sardines. Craigslist is good but it tends to have a whole ton of out of town postings in specific areas where they shouldn’t be, enter Padmapper:

Padmapper takes all the housing listings from Craigslist, Kijiji etc and put them on a Google map so you can search by area. Furthermore you can filter down base on price, walking distance to work and a whole slew of great options.

Next time I’m looking for a place I’m going Padmapper all the way!
