It’s been a busy couple of years.  My images were once again included at the Women In Photography International (www.wipi.org) boothat photoLA this past January.  In October, my image, Purple Tulip No. 1, received an Honorable Mention in the Professionals/Flowers category from the International Photography Awards offered by the Lucie Foundation.  I had the pleasure of attending both exciting photography events.

Author Kathy Corday will be appearing on WTTW Channel 11 in Chicago as a host for their Pledge Event evening programs airing June 9th, June 13th, June 15th and June 16th.

Please tune in and consider making a pledge of support to public television.  Illinois state funding to WTTW Channel 11 was recently cut by $1 million for the year, so it’s more important than ever to contribute to the level that you are able.  Viewer contributions to Channel 11 amount to about 65% of the total operating budget, so you are the public in public television.  It’s an investment that will not only pay dividends to you, your family and your friends, but it will continue to benefit the entire Chicagoland community.

Every dollar does make a difference!

Congratulations to the Titans of Illinois Welsleyan Universityof Bloomington, Illinois for winning the Division III College World Series held Memorial Day weekend in Appleton, Wisconsin.  The mighty Titans baseball team arrived at the tournament as the underdogs only to surprise SUNY Cortland in the final game to win the National Championship.  The final score of 17-5 was the second-highest scoring final in Division III baseball history. (The highest score is 38-6.)

What a wonderful accomplishment!

News Flash!  (2 April 2010)

After all these years, there it is on page 59 of issue #1096, April 2, 2010 of Entertainment Weekly: the photograph that I created of Peter Schneider, the late Roy Disney, and Jeffrey Katzenberg taken during the creation of Disney’s animated feature, Aladdin.  I had five whole minutes to grab the shot as the trio walked between two Animation Buildings.  Always a charmer, Roy suggested that they seat themselves on the steps for a moment.  I framed the shot, and the rest was history.

The image appears in this week’s hard copy of Entertainment Weekly as a photo illustration to publicize the release Disney’s new film, Waking Sleeping Beauty.  Telling the behind-the-scenes tale of how creativity and office politics collide, this is a must-see film for anyone who is considering putting their artistic talent to work.  As a staff photographer for the Imagineering division of The Walt Disney Company, I had the luxury of interacting with cast members of all levels at Disney many divisions and can vividly recall the commitment and spirit of the Animation team to restore the name of Walt Disney to its rightful place at movie theaters around the globe.

What a lovely surprise and gift this article is to me.   In the early 90’s, when I left the company to head to Washington D.C., I was unable to acquire a copy of  this image from the Imagineering vault.  It was simply too new at the time to be released.  The initial plan was to incorporate the image into Disney’s Annual Report.   As of today, I can happily include it among the pages of my photography portfolio.

To my friends at Walt Disney Imagineering, Disney Animation, and  The Walt Disney Company at-large, I cannot thank you enough for such a wonderful employment experience!
