Each year the Savage seminar is a great educational and inspirational weekend for photojournalists. This year I have the proud honor of speaking.
The circumstances around my presentation are probably less than inspiring. With the state of newspapers in shambles, news of mass layoffs occurring daily, and many working and student photojournalists left wondering about the viability of their chosen professions, the NNPA thought it would be topical for me to talk about my experience leaving the industry.
It’s my goal to help any photographers who want to continue making a living through photography to have a clear view of some of their alternatives and help them maneuver around some of the obstacles they may face.
I know many of the people who follow my blog are photojournalists. This is a call for your help. Whether you plan to attend or not (and I hope you will!) what kinds of questions do you have? What specific points would you like to see me address? What’s on your mind? Please leave comments below.
Also please help spread the word about the Savage Seminar. Feel free to share the flier image below. Please email, tweet, retweet, or share this post to your Facebook friends. You’ll find tools to do just that below this post.
