Though I’ve flirted with it in the past, it is truly now time to officially shutter HMAb. Thanks in no little part to all of you, the blog has served me well- it has brought me opportunity, if not wealth, and loads of inspiration, knowledge and even friends around the globe.
Living in Canada, I’ve reached as high as I can as an Art Buyer, I’ve had some tremendous Art Buying challenges but my love for that sort of work is mostly gone. Instead, I’m going back to school to get my MA at McMaster University in their Communication and New Media Program and I am teaching in Sheridan’s Bachelor of Applied Arts program: this fall I have the pleasure of introducing first year students to “Conceptual Processes” and in the winter I will teach a course that doesn’t exist anywhere else and which I’m developing right now: The History of Advertising Photography. Fun!
Education is something that has always interested me- my entire immediate family are teachers and most of my extended family is too- including those who’ve married in. So I’m excited about this next chapter. Questions about the need to foist more photography students onto the world definitely plays on my mind but I am confident that Sheridan provides a unique and rich University experience- from the importance of concepting, through history, technique, work placements and business courses, I’m thrilled to be part of a committed and vibrant faculty.
So, carry on brave shooters and I hope you’ve enjoyed the information here as much as I’ve enjoyed bringing it to you.
All the best,
