White House Press Photographer’s Association Conference

Gave the keynote speech today at the White House Press Photographer’s Conference at American University in Washington, DC.

Had a great time and ran into lots of old friends from VOA, Verizon and the web.

Below, some images:

About 150 professional photographers showed up to find out how to adapt to the VJ world.

  1. I see you’re “weighing” the merits of specialization! Good to finally meet you yesterday. Great program.

  2. As co-sponsor/co-organizer of the event, I can tell all who reads this that Michael not only was the keynote speaker but that he also stole the show. His knowledge of, and passion for, the craft were inspiration to us all.
