A Brand New Kind of Photography Event

A round-up, keynote and collection of f64 Live interviews

A new kind of photography adventure…

On August 11th, 2018 I had the amazing opportunity to keynote the very first f64 Live conference. Below is that presentation, along with some fun short interviews I did with a few of the instructors. Many thanks to the conference organizers for inviting me, and also for creating something unique in the photography event industry.

f64 Live invite the industry’s top professional photographers and instructors. These brilliant artists descend on the event to share their expertise.

To facilitate this, they set up photography “playgrounds” where instructors can… well… instruct, and attendees can put their newfound skills into practice. f64 Live construct amazing photographic opportunities — each designed to let your creativity go wild!
