It’s that time of year again – pumpkin is in the air ( like, everywhere) and it’s also time for the annual 2016 PDN PhotoPlus Expo in New York City! There is nothing like New York in the fall, coupled with collaborating and meeting tons of very talented photographers – it just makes for something I look forward to every single year.

If you haven’t been to 2016 PDN PhotoPlus Expo, at the gigantic Javits Center, here’s the gist:

The PDN PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo is the largest photography and imaging show in North America, attended by nearly 22,000 professional photographers, photography enthusiasts, filmmakers, students and educators from around the world. PhotoPlus features over 100 educational seminars, Photo Walks and Master Classes, and over 250 exhibitors displaying thousands of the latest products and services for you to touch, try and compare.

I’ll be teaching a Platform program, Modern Portrait Photography, on Friday, October 21, from 10:15AM – 12:15AM. 

The focus of my talk is on portrait photography, and this will be an action-packed program covering the most compelling dynamics of modern portrait photography, which includes not just the technical and lighting components, but the Magic Part – which is often best conveyed by demonstration. That is why I’ll be sharing some new behind-the-scenes footage of shoots that really shows exactly how you can pull it all together in even the most challenging of situations. I’ll also share a bit of an update on my work with Beautiful Together, which connects deeply to work with and for children. Join me on Friday morning at 10:15am for lots and lots and lots more.

Big thanks to my fantastic sponsors: Nikon, Nations Photo Lab, Adorama, Animoto and Imagely – most of whom are also giving out some very generous prizes!!

And all will be MC’d by the fabulous Mike Corrado.
