Here are selected email comments from our 2010 Attendees and Faculty:

Thank you for the opportunity to participate in the Palm Springs Photo Festival 2010. It was an amazing experience. The positive energy and spirit of cooperation was sensational and inspiring. – Richard

Please know I had an AMAZING time for the four days I spent at PSPF. You are all doing an righteous job and I really wish this experience wasn’t just once a year, esp the evening symposiums with all the individual photographers discussing their work while it is projected, SPECTACULAR!!!! Thank you for putting on this magical event. Looking forward to next year!!!! – Tara

I still have not totally awaken from the dream that is the Palm Springs Photo Festival and hope that I never do. I feel blessed to have been a part of it… -Robert

Sure good to be with you at Palm Springs and thank you for it all.– Anthony

I’m remiss in not having let you know earlier what a good time I had at the Photo Festival, how well run I thought it was, [and] what an interesting diversity of speakers there were on panels. The amount of work that goes into the logistics is obviously
formidable but it paid off. Big time! Congratulations! – Gordon

Congrats on the success with PS! You are doing a great job. – Glen

Came home late last night to a quiet house — a shock to the system after the bubbling jazz of your people in Palm Springs. Yes, they are yours because you did the cooking. You make a swell soup and we are all the richer for it. – Jock

Just a note to say thank you so much for the festival last week. It was a fantastic event and I really enjoyed myself. Congratulations to you and all of the fantastic staff and volunteers! – Carol

That was a real treat! The students, the staff, the place, the organization, and all the events and evenings etc. I am happy to have been there and feel that you are making an incredible contribution to the medium with this festival. – Joel

It really was an amazing week and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to also attend some seminars and portfolio reviews, as well as the symposiums and evening presentations. I actually just booked a job with the New York Times Magazine thanks to a portfolio review! – Lindsay

I wanted to give you a few days recovery after the festival before trying to convey my appreciation and respect for what it’s all become. From a photographers standpoint, it’s an amazing gathering of the best minds in this business. I’ve also listened to them discuss the same point and how they are hopeful to return the next year.
From a personal standpoint, I’ve began friendships at the festival which over the years have become the kind of friends that you can’t imagine ever not having. What an amazing place you’ve created Jeff. I can’t think of anything I would be more grateful to be a part of. – Jesse

Now that the Palm Springs Photo Festival is over I wanted to tell you that I thought it was very productive and inspiring. I really appreciate the opportunity to be on the Portfolio Review Faculty. There were a lot of wonderful photographers I met and the evening events were fantastic. – Sarah

I just wanted to drop you a quick line and say thanks for this great festival. I really enjoyed my time in the office and the festival was once again mind-blowingly inspiring. I am still trying to digest all of the words of wisdom that I received. All of the faculty were so kind and generous, I have not a bad word to say about any of them. – Jayme

I had a wonderful time; What I assumed would be fun, turned out to be much more than that! Thank you again. – Bill

Just wanted to let you know that I had a great time in PS and thought the festival was great this year. I met so many nice people and even the portfolio reviews seemed to have been of a higher quality. My only regret is that I didn’t make it to more seminars and talks but I did make one by Swannee and the Photo Collector panel which I thought was very interesting. – Laurie

Fantastic Festival – you provide the best education and party. Thank you. – Carol

First I would like to thank you for the wonderful experience at the Photo Festival. I enjoyed it and got a lot more out of it than I thought I would. I know you put in a lot of work and it is a huge coordination effort, so I applaud you! I took Jock Sturges’ Fine art of the Nude workshop and thought it was fabulous. I found him to be a great instructor and learned a tremendous amount. – Marilynn

Don’t know if I told you before, but congratulations on a really great festival this year. I think it was the caliber of your team. What a terrific staff you assembled! – Dolores

Hi there, I attended the Photo Festival this year and had a terrific and enlightening time. – Anne

Thank you for a great day with Vincent today! It was very informative and helpful! Kudos. – Josh

You outdid yourself this year. It was so organized and well done. I hope it went smoothly from your perspective as well. I enjoyed being there. It’s always nice to be a part of such an inspiring event. – Cindy

I’ve been meaning to write you a note to tell you how impressed I was with the Photo Festival. It was beautifully organized, the panel I attended was terrific, your staff and volunteers were wonderfully helpful. – Karen

I wanted to say thanks, again. I met some really good photographers and just had an all around great time. – Mark

Hope you’re well and have recovered from yet another great festival. I have only heard raves from any attendees within earshot. – Nancy

Thank you again from my part for such a fantastic experience; your team was outstanding and the workshop was a real life changing experience for all, I believe. – Ember
