Hi all,

I just wanted to share a special part of my collection with you. This is a shirt I obtained from a friend who taught at the Maine Photographic Workshops. She told me there were less then 5 of these made and maybe only 2 ever!!! I just thought some other dorks like myself would enjoy seeing a rare and original Ted Churchill shirt.

She told me the story behind the shirt was that the Steadicam class that summer became a little bit rowdy (which is very unusual :P ). The owner of the Workshops wrote Mr. Churchill this letter explaining how he would not be accepted back the following year. It is with my understanding that Mr. Churchill in fact did return to teach the class the following year. Please correct me if I am wrong as I was only 4 years old :o when this happened and the story was passed down to me.

Enjoy!

Hey Mike

I have a matching one given to me by the man himself - looks a bit more worn though!
