Tom Leininger | Teaching & Sale Day

**Lecturer and Photographer, Tom Leininger and I talk about his shift from the world of photojournalism to the world of art education which has been a mix of full time and part time work, including being one of many voices in a large program at the University of North Texas to becoming the primary voice in a small program at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. We also talk about the challenges to finding time to photograph and stay engaged in the art world, especially with a full time job or over-booked adjunct work. **
