Last month I had the opportunity to attend and photograph an awards dinner hosted by the Atlanta chapter of the National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications. This year, past president Lynnette Smith of The Weather Channel was awarded the Mae Douglas Leadership award.Read More
A lot of work-related conferences aren't all that exciting. You’re either cooped up in a cold conference room all day in an interesting place and you end up with no time to explore, your family is out exploring without you, or you’re alone somewhere that isn't an interesting place to hang out.
The people who run FStoppers.com solved all of those problems in one shot with the first FStoppers Workshops, in Nassau, Bahamas.Read More
As I mentioned before, I'm in Portland for Photolucida portfolio reviews. The reviews are just one part of the experience. Each day there are lunchtime chats by photographers and other industry professionals. The first night, there is a portfolio walk, where those of us here to be reviewed get a chance to show our work to the public. This is how much public attended.
My day job is in news, not photography (yet!) Yesterday, thanks to a co-worker who knows I love photography, I got a chance to photograph a media event at Zoo Atlanta for work.
The zoo has several pandas on display. Last year, the only cub born in the States was born at Zoo Atlanta. Yesterday was 100 days since the cub's birth and according to tradition, the zoo held a ceremony to announce his name. When my friend asked me to photograph the event, we thought it was just going to be a quick photo op with the cub (which was a treat, he's not even out for the public to see yet) and the naming ceremony with Zoo Atlanta staff, some local officials and what the zoo p.r. office said would be an appearance by an international celebrity.
The zoo had a surprise lined up.
