During FotoWeek DC's annual PhotoFest, a group of concerned photography professionals brought together a series of presenters to talk briefly about what's next in the industry. Michael Lutzky, a former staff photographer for the Associated Press who now is a strategy and management consultant for media companies, was among the presenters, and the presentations are now online on YouTube. Lutzky made a number of remarkable points, one so much so that I added it in to the beginning of my presentation (with his permission, of course.)
Here's the Highlights video (RSS readers see the video here):
