One of the perks of my job is being invited to NDA meetings (non disclosure agreement) where I'm introduced to new products before their official release. The goal is to help us prepare our content, so when the product is debuted, news and reviews about it are immediately available.
Last Thursday, I was invited to a hotel in San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf area for an NDA meeting about an upcoming camera that I'm quite interested in. The gathering was scheduled for the afternoon, so I planned my day with business stops along the way to work as efficiently as possible.
When possible, I like to arrive early and save some time afterwards so I can wander the streets with my camera. I may be there on business, but I want so time to enjoy the setting too. I think this is a key to business travel in general.
As it worked out, I have a fun shoot that day. I posted a couple of the shots on The Digital Story in the article titled, Street Shooting with the Olympus OM-D and 14-42mm Zoom. As for the NDA meeting itself, yes it went well too. But I won't be able to talk about that until mid-September.
