Speaking for the PMA and the Imaging Technology Expo

The Imaging Technology Expo is now over and I was honoured to be a part of the speaking program, both for the Photo Marketing Association and the Imaging Theatre for the general public who attended.
My lecture on Friday morning was called "The Other Side of the Counter" and dealt with the differences between what customers expect and need from photo retailers and what photo retailers often give them - techbabble. I was apprehensive about my ideas, but was reassured afterward by those within the industry that I had hit the nail on the head.
My three lectures on Sunday for the general public dealt with photo tips and techniques and I was happy that I drew an even larger crowd than celebrity photographer, Guy Sebastian! Sure, he's young and good looking and a great singer, but he can't shoot like I can! ;-) I have been asked to do more speaking within the photo industry and I am more than pleased to do so. I love to inspire, motivate and teach the love and the art of photography. After all, it has brought so much joy to my life...
Here are some comments from those who were there...

"Once again mate I just want to say how great your talk was. You were certainly in the top few speakers at the conference. Your bells and whistles quote was a classic..."

"I wanted to say, thank you for sharing your passion and skill, If you had anything to do with the weekend's exhibition I am very grateful because trying to find people who share their knowledge, trying to find courses that are around for people who will never be great but hope to improve their photography is not easy, and it was pleasant to sit and listen to a man who believes that what he does is worthwhile and valuable.."

I attended your seminars on Sunday for the photographic exhibition at the Exhibition Building. They were really interesting and motivated me to learn more about photography.."

"I was lucky enough to hear all 3 of your presentations yesterday at the PMA exhibition in Melbourne and thank you - they were great. .."

Well, thank you all for your kind comments....much appreciated!
I will be speaking on the subject of Cokin filters at Michaels Camera and Video on Friday Afternoon at 2:15 11/5/07.
