Save Your Photos

Today’s <bonus> post is an advertisement of sorts.

Are you overwhelmed by the stack of family photos in your closet?

Do you have delusions of scrapbook grandeur but don’t want to compromise the integrity of your photos?

Did you inherit great-aunt Mabel’s Victorian-era family photo albums and don’t know what to do?

May I suggest …my class?

I teach a photo preservation class through the Des Moines Public Schools Community Education Program — or, rather, I did. I was hoping to take this term off and teach a paper & book preservation class instead, but somehow, my photo class ended up in the Spring 2011 schedule so here we are.

Anyhow, if you’re local (Des Moines Metro) and want to learn about the history of photography and how to identify/display/preserve your photos (from the dawn of photography to the digital age, as I like to say), check out my class.

And since I’m on the self-promotion kick, I’ll just add: I’ve also led photo preservation workshops for community organizations, so if you would like to have me speak to your group, please let me know!

Thank you for reading; I now return you to your normal, Tuesday afternoon blog reading.
