NOTE: Canon has authorized "Standing Room Only" tickets to allow for possible no-shows. The auditorium has 125 seats, so the first 125 who preregistered have first claim to those seats. Those with SRO tickets may claim empty seats at the beginning of the program. Walk-ins allowed as space permits.
Courtesy of the Canon Explorers of Light, Nick Vedros presents a very informative, inspiring, and entertaining program on his approach to advertising and commercial photography. Join us as he examines the amazing images he has created throughout his career and explains his problem-solving methods.
Nick has become an icon in commercial photography over his many years in the business and he will discuss marketing and style, how to get your work seen, and the different approaches he has used during his career to gain national work.
Inspired by his uncle Mike's B&W photographs on the family kitchen table when he was 13, Nick was inspired to attend the University of Missouri and earn a degree in Photojournalism in 1976. He then quickly found his true passion in the world of commercial photography. Anyone can look through a viewfinder, but there's nothing simple about Nick's multi-disciplinary approach for bringing a concept to life:
- Inspired imagination fueled by ingenuity
- State-of-the-art production resources
- An innovative studio team of hand-picked professionals
- Attentiveness to client satisfaction which is downright addictive
Nick's work garners top honors from the Addys, the Effies, Archive International, Communication Arts, N.A.M.A., the Top 200 Advertising Photographers, and the Canon Explorer of Light program. He attracts blue-chip clients like Apple, Bayer, Capital One, Coca-Cola, DuPont, IBM, Kodak, Microsoft, Sony, and Sprint.
On a Vedros shoot, every details is obsessively controlled. There is no shortage of creative inspiration or top shelf resources. Challenges are anticipated and addressed proactively. Nick creates an atmosphere of confidence that frees clients to concentrate on creative direction. The music is great, the panoramic views spectacular, the hospitality genuine, and the cumor constant. With Nick, you're not just going to a photoshoot. Your having an entire creative experience. The Vedros Experience.
