“Jeff Cable is a rock star in the world of photography education. He not only knows his stuff, but he has the unique gift of being able to meet his students at their level and make complicated technical information both easy to understand and entertaining. His events sell out within minutes of being posted, and his videos are among the most viewed on our website. Our attendees always leave excited about what they've learned and asking when he'll be back. Truly, any program is lucky to get him!”

The follow-up would be similar to the former seminar: Several meetings with listed mentor judges, a practice session at a camera club, overseen by one of their mentors, will complete the program requirements and lead to your addition to the Judges List.
Submission of a biography and judging philosophy statement will be required of registrants at the outset.. When you qualify, these will be sent to Joe Hearst, the N4C Judges Chair and the new judge will have $50 of the fee returned.

The Yerba Buena Chapter of the Photographic Society of America (PSA) was founded in 1973 by Joseph P. Fallon, Jr. to bring closer ties with PSA into the Bay Area.  It comprises all PSA members in the following counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Monterey, Napa, San Benito, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano and Sonoma. Membership in the Yerba Buena Chapter is free of charge.
We are a local extension of our parent Photographic Society of America.. To that end we sponsor two all-day Chapter programs during the year, featuring either well-known photographers or special hands-on workshops, which are always well attended. The fee structure is generally modest, and less for PSA members than non-members. Presenters of some of our past programs include Sam Abell, Huntington Witherill, André Gallant, Richard Martin, Gary Crabbe, Brenda Tharp, Jeremy Sutton, Russ Burden, and Steve Traudt.
We also hold Judges Seminars, including one in November, 2016, with the purpose of attracting new judges for the local club level.
