Speaker Spotlight

Greetings from an accidental storm chaser:

As you know, I have been traveling, teaching the Lightroom Workflow Workshops over the last few weeks and I just finished one in Houston, Texas today (Thursday, October 29th).  I planned my workshop tour to coincide with Pictage Partner Conference, in New Orleans.  But, with a few days to myself, I thought I would swing up to visit my family in Shreveport, Louisiana.  Have you seen the weather lately?  An absolute nightmare of a storm has spread itself directly up my path with tornados touching down all over Shreveport.  So, while my family hunkers down in a closet amidst storm sirens, and with road closures everywhere, I am left half way between Houston and Shreveport in a Best Wester Hotel watching an HBO encore of George Clooney’s “The Perfect Storm.”


Will I make it to Shreveport?  Not tonight?  Maybe tomorrow…  maybe not…

Will I make it to New Orleans?  Without a doubt.  I wouldn’t miss it, but I may be hitching a ride in a tornado.

I am looking forward to speaking at the Partner Conference.  My lecture is entitled “The Photographer’s Eye,” in which I will discuss five unique attributes of the art and craft of photography which set us apart from the rest of art world.  It will be a great opportunity to take a break from the business discussions and immerse ourselves in the medium and renew our excitement and love for the act of photography and elevate our thinking.

Why should you come to hear my lecture?  Because this lecture is a fantastic lecture for photographers of all levels that will inspire and energize you.  Because, it’s like a photographic sermon that will leave you shouting Amen!  Because I am always lecturing at the same time as Joe Buissink and if you don’t wear your glasses, or if you come with sleep in your eyes, we kind of look the same!

I look forward to seeing everyone there!

By the way, I already have my umbrella.
