Photography Presentations for Camera Club & Photography Events

I love to share my experience and inspire others!

I am honored to have been a keynote and featured speaker and presented for professional organizations, regional and local camera clubs, Meetup groups, and privately-owned photography co-ops across the United States and now worldwide with virtual presentations.

My speaking experience ranges from presenting to large crowds as a featured speaker on stages for OlympusTamronSavage UniversalV-Flat WorldLuminar, and TetherTools at industry events to presentations for regional photography events as well as local camera club meetings. I have also taught photography classes at both a college and high school level.

My teaching style is energetic, filled with humor, and, well, instead of me describing it, you can watch the videos at the bottom of the page to see a few of my presentations, or you can check out my YouTube Videos.

Choose from a library of photography and marketing presentations listed below that are prepared, tested, and proven to educate and entertain. These talks are routinely updated as technology and industry trends advance.

I am always open to creating a new presentation, keynote, or workshop for your group or organization, and I also do Photo Walks to teach shooting portraits or models outside on location.
