Samantha Cooper, Erika Gentry and Elizabeth Strong.

Thanks to the generosity of family, friends, the photography community and CCSF faculty over $1500 in micro-donations for scholarships to the SPE National Conference  were raised! The following students were  awarded a full weekend pass and all very much look forward to the opportunity to learn from industry leaders and artists. We are all extremely touched that you helped make this possible – especially in tough economic times for California and it’s community colleges. Thank you to our donors! Professor Erika Gentry, CCSF chairs the sold out conference and expects 1500 photo geeks to attend from around the world!
