Bron Imaging is doing a fantastic job with their Shoot NY event during this year’s Photo Expo. I attended Karen D’Silva’s panel which was totally well put together. Karen and her fellow panelists were engaging, informative, insightful and generous in their presentation and willingness to answer questions . The take away message was – Mine your own life story for source material, present it imaginatively, execute it flawlessly. Karen is going to be doing another presentation with APA|NY in November and based on the audience’s response to yesterday’s presentation it’s going to be an awesome & highly attended event.
I also got to hear August Bradley, whose work I am madly in love with, give his presentation. The best thing about it was to see what a completely lovely, thoughtful and generous human being he is, not to mention being hugely talented. The take away message from August - team work, respect for and kindness towards your team members, and dedication to your craft are key elements in creating great images.
Generosity, community, lifelong learning & dedication to one’s craft would be the overall themes of the day. The NY photo community is full of people who embody these qualities. Bron Imaging put on all of these amazing panels, with more to come today, for free. Many Thanks to Colin King and Jim Reed for their continuous and genuine support of Photographers.
