Speakers and Topics:

Adam Sparkes: Almost Killed Me
- Mentally and physically recovering from a deadly relationship with my photography career. Have you ever loved doing something so much that just getting to do it was enough to ignore the toll it was taking on you? The need for money, the drive for success, the desire for accolades, fear of failure, and poor self-care where the pillars propping up my photography career. A massive heart attack nearly took me from my family, and only then could I admit that the thing that I had professed to love so much was actually fueling my self-destruction. This talk is about how doing the wrong thing for so long ultimately inspired me to seek a path for doing it right. Photography almost killed me, but it somehow brought me back.

Amy Schrodt: Building a Brand on Social Media

With how fast technology changes and how we implement it in our own lives, it’s important as entrepreneurs to stay on top of what our clients relate to. Blogs used to be the “it” thing, now it’s Instagram’s instastories. What’s next? How do we communicate, promote ourselves, and balance our own schedules?

I’ve successfully branded a photo series for entrepreneurs to help simplify and create their brand in today’s changing social media times. Headshots are so 2018. I want to reinvent what clients see when they look at a business. What’s beyond the photo?

My goal is to create a fun, clear, and concise direction of your brand so you can use images and helpful marketing techniques for social media and self promotion. With engaging posts and captions, I believe in taking charge of social media to use it to show passion, take what your clients see and help it resonate with them.

Joel Hernandez: Exit Strategies / Life After Photography Business
- Everyone needs to develop one Exit Strategy and update it regularly. We are not as invincible as we would like to believe and life will surprise and test you repeatedly so, let’s talk about getting ready for a gentler future.

Jeffrey Lewis Bennett: GIF Demo
- Jeffrey will walk us through his iconic GIF process. 

All talks will be 15 minutes in length with 5 minutes after reserved for Q&A. Please arrive promptly at 6:30 for dinner/drinks/networking and speakers will begin at 7pm.
