David Hobby: Beyond f/stops and Shutter Speeds

As photographers, something that defines us as a group is a love for—and an understanding of—making pictures. But beyond that, every one of us is a unique individual with different skillsets and experiences.

This discussion will explore how to tap into external expertise to open meaningful doors in your photography. Building on this approach to create a more robust and rewarding ecosystems to maximize the value of our work.

Andy Mumford: Life Lessons from Landscape Photography

Throughout his journey in landscape photography, Andy Mumford, has come to realize that a significant part of the pleasure he gets from making images comes from an understanding of why he’s doing it and what he truly expects to get out of it.

The way a photographer approaches photography will mirror the way they approach their lives. In this Fujifilm sponsored presentation Mumford will discuss how a greater understanding of expectation can lead to us gain a better appreciation of our own photography thereby maximizing our potential to create compelling images.

Sara Lando: Personal Projects

Often photographers don’t commit to a personal project; instead they snap images in the moment then move on to chase the next. Frequently, fast results are valued over devoting time and effort to a single project without any guarantee that it will be rewarding. To commit time and energy to a project without instant gratification is intimidating, daunting and most get discouraged before they even begin.

“They look at the amount of work it takes, and they feel like someone who’s badly out of shape at the prospect of running a marathon.” ~Sara Lando

In this discussion Lando will inspire participants to consider making time and space for passion projects and show by example that when you invest in the creative that not only your work but you will be transformed.
