It All Started For Me 3 Years Ago…
Not in a galaxy far, far away… but in a Starbucks in Austin, TX.
I was out for SXSW and a big photo walk led by my friend Trey Ratcliff.
We sat down in Starbucks with his son Ethan for a warm and lovely mocha… and he told me his idea for a different kind of photography school.
He said photography education is broken (I agreed)… and he had an idea for a brand new approach.
It would be based upon the Master & Apprentice model of art education… but would utilize Google Glass (in its bare infancy) and a host of other high tech ways of connecting with each other as ways to be completely mobile and responsive. Did I want to be involved?
It sounded out there… part ancient education system, part video game, part Hogwarts, part I didn’t know what… but didn’t hesitate. YES! I was in.
And now… The Arcanum is here. The boat has left the shore… the journey has begun.
