9:30 - 11:30  Kevin Raber will discuss travel photography in his presentation entitled Picture in a Picture. He will share his gear choices, and he does have a lot of gear!  He'll also share his insights on mirrorless cameras and the brands he used to capture his images.

11:30 - 1:00  Lunch Break (on your own)

1:00 - 5:00  Rick Sammon will give two presentations.  In the first presentation, Making Images with Impact, Canon Explorer of Light Rick will talk about how photographers can make images with impact, which is a noble goal for all photographers. Rick will show how to use composition, color, exposure, post processing and creatively visualization (to name a few topics) for making images with impact.  Rick will also talk about his one-picture promise, which Rick promises, works all the time.

In the second presentation Rick covers the most important element in photography: Getting Inspired and Staying Motivated.  To drive home his point, Rick will share his "Top Ten" list of how to get inspired and how to stay motivated.  This list, which Rick will expand upon: Steal, Share, Join, Learn, Change, Travel, Enjoy, Look, and Walk.

You don't want to miss Rick's motivational talk.  It's a great way to start the weekend!


Canon Explorer of Light and award-winning photographer Rick Sammon loves his day job. A tireless, prolific and inspirational image-maker, Rick, called by some “The Godfather of Photography,” is one of the most active photographers on the planet – dividing his time between creating images, leading photo workshops, and making personal appearances.

Rick has written 38 books on photography, and has 14 on-line classes on KelbyOne. Rick gives about a dozens seminars and workshops each year – around the country and around the world.

Rick’s enthusiasm for digital imaging is contagious. He is a man on a mission – a mission to make digital photography fun, creative, exciting and rewarding for others.

Rick’s latest books are Creative Visualization for Photographers and Evolution of an Image, and Exploring Photographic Exposure.

While Rick describes himself as “evolving,” he hesitates to categorize his work. “I’m an A-to-Z type of photographer. I do it all – and I enjoy the freedom of not specializing.”

With nearly 40 years of experience, this self-taught photographer has many accomplishments – and many more anticipated for the road ahead.  As Rick suggests, “When you are through changing, you are through.”
