On a regular basis I'm accused of being the industry cheerleader, but here's a prime example of what keeps me so pumped up. The industry is constantly changing and over and over again new experiences just to seem to appear.
Here's the scenario today:
I got the email below this morning from SPTV. I couldn't be more excited about today's show and a completely new experience for my 40+ year adventure in photography. I've done podcasts, webcasts, spoken at various conferences, taught marketing workshops and introduced hundreds of speakers over the years, but never been part of a hosting team on a series like this.
Yesterday we filmed part of today's show, a shoot out challenge with my co-host, Matthew Jordan Smith, Lindsay Adler and David Ziser. Each of them had a different way of facing the challenge, demonstrating their individual expertise and why each of them are known as the very best in photography.
Together with Sandy and Rob, they created some of the best hands-on content in education. Over and over again I was in awe of their expertise and the way they took on the challenge. We'll be sharing this content through most of the day today, starting at 10:00 am EST and I love the way we're going to do it.
Following each photographer's pre-recorded segment, we'll have them on as a guest on the show, live, to comment on the thought process they experienced going through the shoot.
I hope you'll join us - it's going to be a kick!
Join us Saturday, January 24th from 10am–4pm EST for a shoot-out challenge!
SPTV.me will present a location challenge, and Matthew Jordan Smith, Lindsay Adler, and David Ziser will discuss their approach to the situation then go into action. Each photographer will demonstrate their methods and techniques to problem solve during this on location scenario. You don’t want to miss this!
Watch them work their way through difficult lighting problems and join us for a chat where you can ask questions live. Clear your schedule, this type of learning experience isn’t available often.
Then join us on Sunday the 25th with special guests Tim and Bev Walden as they discuss the ins and outs, and ups and downs of working with your spouse. Roberto Valenzuela will share what it take to write a book. Also onboard Sunday is Skip Cohen, Jillian Bell, Tom Curley, Matthew Jordan Smith, and David Ziser.
