We’re coming into the final countdown for the Persistent Vision photo event in Bragg Creek March 16. Yikes! It’s been hoppin’ at the office — events of this size come with a million little details. But it’s shaping up to be a very fun and informative weekend. While the full weekend is sold out, I hear from The Camera Store that someone is unable to attend and is looking for a photographer to replace them…if you’re interested, this is a GREAT opportunity! Email me today and I’ll put you in touch with The Store so you can buy your ticket.
One of the things that makes this event so exciting is that the entire oopoomoo Team is going to be there. That’s right! Stephen, our web guru and eBook designer will be flying in all the way from P.E.I., Catherine, our trusty assistant, will be ensuring things run smoothly and even our eBook authors, John Marriott and Dave Brosha will be present! One of the areas in which the photo industry has changed in the last few years is the ability to be your own publisher: come speak to the pros on how to make, market and manage your own eBook! We have some fun ideas for the oopoomoo booth, too, so bring your sense of humour! (If you know anything about us, you know we’re going to be doing something creative and silly!)
Speaking of eBooks…we’re very excited to officially announce Darwin and my latest books, The Creative Use of Shutter Speed and Exposure Basics Workbook. These two books are part of our Photography Fundamentals series (together with The Creative Use of Aperture) and are designed to allow you to master the camera controls we consider critical for expressive photography in an easy, step-by-step way. Doing things a little differently, but still sticking to our guns on not discounting books after release, we’ve created some bundle options to make your learning more affordable. Check ‘em out!
And finally, our guest speaker David duChemin has kindly agreed to provide two draw prizes of the entire Craft & Vision eBook Library — that’s a value of $200 each! Thanks, David for your generosity: someone’s going to go home happy!
Still room in the Saturday, full-day learning event…but time is running out. This is a one-of-a-kind photo event for Albertans and a great way to make new friends and business contacts all the while being surrounded by inspiring images made by Canada’s top photographers. We hope to see you there!
