Tonight a photography assignment took me to Town Hall Seattle. I shoot a lot of events, but every now and then, one truly stands out. Tonight’s event was one such. It wasn’t particularly glamorous, fancy, or showy. Rather it had a more intimate feel. Aisha Tyler performed a reading from her new book, Self-Inflicted Wounds, answered questions from the audience, and then finished with a book signing. I appreciated her openness, thoughtfulness, and honesty in presenting information. Her résumé is far too extensive to list here, but I encourage you to check out her website to learn more about what she is up to. It was truly a pleasure to see her in person. Here is the video she started the night with along with some of my favorite photos from the night.

The BGI Diversity and Social Justice committee (Current students Courteny Morehouse, Drew Jones, Michael B. Maine, and Shawna Holman) delivered a diversity training at the Boys and Girls Club in Long Beach, WA. The group led four different exercises throughout the day. This training was the first of its kind from BGI and gave the students an opportunity to merge their passions with work outside of the BGI community. The group was well-received, and believe there will be positive results.
