A free online travel and food photography class is being hosted by my friend, Penny de los Santos, who happens to be one of the most talented photojournalists I’ve ever seen. Her work moves people in such unexpected ways. She had me in tears and nearly speechless last year during her presentation at BlogHer Food.

Penny shoots for National Geographic Magazine, Saveur and Martha Stewart Living. Check out her portfolio – the photos will leave you breathless.

The 3-day course hosted by Creative Live is FREE to participate online live beginning 5/13/11 at 10am PT, or if you can’t watch live, the recording is only $99 to to download. If you’re interested in ATTENDING the class live in Seattle, Penny is looking for a few audience members – watch her video below and see her post for more details.

I’ve just purchased my “ticket” as I’ll be in California for a couple of days that week (though I’m so tempted to fly up to Seattle and attend the class if just for a few hours)
