PhotoPLUS 2010 - Delivering What You Promise on Global Assignments

In October, I will be presenting a new program at the 2010 PhotoPLUS Expo, that discusses the challenges of delivering images on assignment, around the world, for a broad spectrum of clients. While PhotoPLUS hasn't released the full program yet, I wanted readers of this blog to get a heads up to the new program (I did get permission from the folks at PPE to announce this though!)

Here are the details:

Thursday, 8:45 AM – 11:45 AM

NEW! Delivering What You Promise on Global Assignments [TA3]
John Harrington
Sponsored by Cengage
Once the assignment has been booked and contracts signed, delivering on your promise is often one of the most challenging parts of the job. The key to longevity in the business is making sure the client gets what you said they would, despite the logistics of getting there, the challenges of pre-visualizing the final image and the demands of working with high-profile subjects. Through a series of his own assignments—covering subjects that range from Presidents to rock stars to your everyday Joe—Harrington will talk you through what it took to get the shot. Whether climbing to the crows’ nest of the Golden Gate Bridge or hanging out of a helicopter for air-to-air photography, the core of this presentation will be about learning from experience and knowing what it takes to get the shot. All levels.
So, go, sign up (when registration opens), and tell your friends! While the book, Best Business Practices for Photographers has all manner of detail on the business of photography, there are not photos. This presentation will show you the photos, the behind-the-scenes images, and other details about how the assignment ended up!
