David Ziser's Digital WakeUp Call 2009
Jenn and I went to see David Ziser's Digital WakeUp Call last night in Louisville, Kentucky and I have to say, this was the single most informative photography seminar I have been too yet, and I've been to a few!
In four hours (maybe just a tad over) he packed in information on shooting; composition, lighting tips, marketing, business management, software and workflows. He also gave out a ton of prizes! ...of course of which I won nothing. =) I'm a lucky guy, its all bad luck.
David is a prolific blogger and an excellent teacher and has been one for many, many years. He makes you feel at home, cracks a few jokes and shares information with you that years ago, you would have to threaten a pro photographer to part with this kind of information.
If you're a wedding photographer, a portrait photographer or ANY kind of photographer, do yourself a favor and try to attend this tour. Its definitely worth the money and if you are a more financially successful photographer than I am, you can afford to attend one of his Digital Master Classes. I haven't been to one of these, but I suspect its even more informative and inspirational than his Digital WakeUp Call tour.
Also, David was gracious enough to pose for a few portraits with Jenn and myself and had time to answer one-on-one questions with us. What a very cool guy!
