Today I'm in Connecticut to speak to a group of photographers at the CT PPA photo convention. My topic for tonight is "how to take great pictures" and I believe it will be a great crowd. When I landed last night I had 77 twitter mentions regarding speaking in Conn, so if that's any indication it will be a good crowd. Maybe it is because I'm giving away a Sony Nex camera tonight or maybe it's because people want to really learn more about photography. Whatever the case, I am excited to be here and looking forward to speaking tonight and sharing more knowledge to help photographer make a better living and have more fun doing so.
Whenever I travel to give a presentation it seems I'm always making last minuet changes to my presentation on the plane. As I pulling out my computer to make a few tweaks the gentleman beside me asked if the photographs were mine. Turns out he's a producer and was traveling to Hartford, Connecticut as well. We talked the entire flight and I learned we had a lot in common. He produces TV and web commercials for Nike, Samsung and other high end clients. We talked about the future of both our industries and he said, "clients will always need content and as our society uses more and more screens, from TV's to laptops, ipads, etc, clients will need content to put on those devices". The future looks great when you think about all the advantages photographers have to provide content.
Flying from Los Angeles required that I change planes in Dallas, and my connection was supposed to be a short one but I ended up waiting six hours with weather delays. The time was well spent as my new friend, the producer I met on my first flight, was on the same connection flight and we talked about our businesses and the future. I shared some aspects of my personal project and he gave me excellent advise in moving my project forward and a few tips along the way. It was time well spent in the airport.
Tonight I plan to share something I've never shared with an audience before. The wonderful thing is, no matter where you are, you too can enjoy the benefit from the information I am about to share tonight. I will announce this new information on Twitter after tonight's event. You won't want to miss this because this information may be just the thing that turns your photography career around. Follow me on Twitter at Matthew_JordanS to take part and learn how to become a better photographer.
