I just got back from the Out of Chicago Conference, a photography conference devoted to hands-on learning. I've been going since its inception four years ago, and have been a part of the staff for the past two years. Last year we added a conference in New York, and this October, we're heading to Acadia National Park. Conferences and workshops like these are a great way to learn your craft. But they're also a wonderful opportunity to pick up some business and marketing skills. Out of Chicago prides itself on hands-on experiences. You're … [Read more...] about Photography Marketing: Making Connections at Photography Conferences

I wrote this sitting in the airport ready to fly home from eight days in the New York City area. Between the first GoingPro Bootcamp, Photo Plus Expo and some consulting days with my wonderful east coast clients, it was a great trip.

While occasionally inconvenient, the crowds did deliver lots of energy. There were no surprises and no major new … [Read more...] about Photo Plus Expo Wrap Up

Some I can't tell you about because they are under NDA. But I can tell you there are lots of new support systems coming for DSLR video/still shooters - some from companies that have previously not been in that space. Benro announced a refresh of its budget (but … [Read more...] about Day One At Photo Plus Expo
