First, I just wanted to share that we have the design for my next book, "Fashion Flair for Portrait and Wedding Photography", available Feb 2011. I'm very excited for this publication... my last book had no photography (less exciting for me as a photographer)... and this book is full of beautiful images! I came up with the cover concept myself, it was tweaked by my publisher, and prepared just in time to promote at Photo Plus! Hope you like it!
PDN's Photo Plus is one of the biggest annual photography events in NYC. Hundreds of vendors and thousands of photographers converge on the Jacob Javits Center for 3 days of free (and paid) classes, discounts, presentations and more. Its an exciting and educational event for both the beginner photog and seasoned pro.
This year I have the pleasure of taking part in MANY events on Thursday, Friday and Saturday! Please introduce yourself if you cross my path and read my blog... its great to meet some of the blog-reading faces in person! I'd also love if you try to stop by some of the teaching events I have below. Everything except the panel discussion is completely free! Plus, I love the positive reassurance.
Here is my schedule:
