With ClickCon coming up August 4-7 I thought it would be fun to dig back through the SCU archives and share episodes of "Why?" with artists who are speaking at the conference.
Headed to ClickCon? Here's a way for you to get to know a little more about thirteen of the sixty-three speakers, who make up one of the strongest educational lineups I've ever seen in a boutique conference like this. And, if you can't make it, it's a great way to learn more about some of the most respected photographers in the industry.
I started "Why?" in 2016 when teaching a class and nobody knew who Mary Ellen Mark was. So the idea kicked off with help from John Sexton, being willing to be my first guest. They're all meant to be 3-10 minute podcasts featuring one artist, one image and the backstory of why it's one of their favorite photographs. From the most recent "Why?" this week to episodes over the last three years there are now 121 in the series, and it continues to grow.
Just click on any image below, and you'll hear the backstory behind the image.
And, there's still time to register for ClickCon and be a part of the launch of what's destined to become one of the most significant events in education, networking, and FUN! Remember the word "fun?" It's so often lost today, buried under all the stress of running a business. Well, August 4-7 is a perfect time for you to recharge your battery, and pick up new ideas to build a stronger business and skill set going into the seasonality of the fall.
Use "ccskip" and save $50 off your registration and when you enter through the banner below and register, you'll get a piece of my 10% speaker affiliate commission. I'm not taking a penny of the commission, but sharing half with each attendee paid in cash at the conference and the other to one of my favorite nonprofits, Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep.
See you in Chicago!
