VC Photos on CBS Late Show

In early February, producers from the CBS Late Show with Steven Colbert called to purchase some images for use on the show. The images, from our Conejo Valley Days section in Events, ended up in an animated background for the musical performance on March 16 by Brian...

One Oak in a Thousand

People joke about the name Thousand Oaks, asking whether anyone actually tallied the real number in the city. My answer isn't about the number, but the magnificence. Many pre-date the founding of the United States. They are tricky to photograph, mainly because most...

Ventura College
