I wanted to share these short videos about the Palm Springs Photo Festival for several reasons. First, there are a lot of conventions, conferences, and workshops in our industry. Some of them are great, others mediocre and a couple I've heard are terrible. Well, each one has their own personality and benefits for attending. Jeff Dunas has been a friend for a lot of years, long before he realized his dream of founding the Festival. Thanks to Jeff and his team, the Festival has grown to be one of the GREAT events each year, and needs to be on your radar to attend.
Second, watch the videos and pay attention to the way they explain the story. How would you tell your story? And, could you do it all in 2 1/2 minutes like the first one?
Last but not least, unlike other annual events in our industry, the Palm Springs Photo Festival is truly a festival. It's a celebration of imaging, education and networking. One of its unique characteristics is the energy and the pure joy in the air...all the time. This is about the passion for the craft from each instructor, speaker and attendee.
For more information and to register for the event, just click the banner at the top or either of the two Festival images.
"I like to think of it as a renaissance. Everybody inspires everybody else."
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
