Portland, Here We Come

My first conference in Portland, OR happened back in the O'Reilly days during the Open Source event. I was the staff photographer then, and I fell in love with the city. Now, years later, I'm going back to host my own event: The Nimble Photographer Workshop.

We debuted this series in June at the Out of Chicago Conference, and the event was a hit. Our next stop is the beautiful river city of Portland. And we have a terrific venue at the amazing, Pro Photo Supply on Northrup Street.

We gather at their event center at 8:30 AM on Nov. 5th. I'm keeping our group small, so we can really learn from each other, and to make it easy to move about the city when we go out to shoot.

Highlights over the course of the day include my sharing the techniques that I've developed during years of nimble photography, participant "What's in Your Bag" sessions, street shooting and portrait tips, hands-on session, post production discussion, gear review, photo sharing, and more. We're even including lunch.

You can reserve your spot for only $195. Seats are limited. Registration is open now. Pro Photo Supply has promised to have plenty of nimble gear on hand, and their event center, where we'll be working, is terrific.

I'm looking forward to spending the day in the beautiful Northwest. I hope you can join me.

The Nimble Photographer Workshop

I have this idea that I've been working on, and I want to pass it by you. It's called The Nimble Photographer Workshop.

I tested the concept in Chicago last week. And to be honest, it was a big hit. So now I'm thinking about the next phase. And that's where you come in.

Here's the concept. The Nimble Photographer Workshop is a one day event for up to 20 people. The location could be anywhere. I would work with a host who lives locally and who would help me with the logistics. The host would be compensated by free admission and a gratuity.

I would fly in the day before the workshop and coordinate with the host about the last minute details, lead the event the next day, then fly out that night.

The cost for each participant would be $199. And we would have a blast. I think this would be particularly good for camera clubs and other groups who share a passion for nimbleosity.

If you would like to be a host for such an event, send me mail, or use the Contact Form on this site. And let's take this show on the road.
