May 6: Taku Kumabe – Shifting Perspectives for A New Look
Taku will walk through some shooting tips that you can apply anywhere, whether it’s on vacation or in your own backyard, helping you create images that can differentiate your shots from everyone else.

May 13: Viktoria Haack – Navigating the World of Social Media
A social media presence is increasingly necessary; not only to get your name out there, but also from a business and marketing perspective. It can be a confusing process trying to successfully navigate the various platforms, to generate interest but also to stay true to your own personal vision. During this presentation Viktoria will explain her approach to navigating the world of social media.

May 20: Michelle Valberg – Creating Emotional Impact
Whether you are photographing people, wildlife or even landscapes, conveying emotion is the keystone to every great image. As photographers, we all want our images to leave people spellbound right?. Ultimately, we want our viewers to spend more time with our images. Maybe connect on a deeper level, leaving them breathless or perhaps creating their own story within. The ability to convey a feeling through imagery is powerful. As a visual story-teller, this is Michelle’s mission for all her imagery. With us and through her photography, she will explore ways we can create emotional impact and captivate our viewers.

May 27: Kristian Bogner – Intention. Vision. Creation.
Nikon Ambassador Kristian Bogner will take you on an inspirational journey of some of his new work from photographing Jaws surf competition to Grizzly Bears, Osprey and landscapes, to private jets and cars. Kristian will take you through his personal steps for manifesting his vision, share pro photography and video techniques and visual storytelling insights.
