I am very excited and honoured to have been asked to present at the upcoming “Canon Power to your next Step Roadshow 2014”, and annual event organised by Canon South Africa which travels across the country to keep in touch with their photographic community. Here’s the schedule of events:
- 29 March: Marlon du Toit, Theatre on the Track, Kyalami Business Park, JHB
- 5 April: Andrew Beck, Moses Mabhida Stadium, Durban
- 6 April: Andrew Beck, Protea Hotel Marine Drive, PE
- 12 April: Andrew Beck, Cape Town International Convention Centre, Cape Town
This year Marlon and I will be presenting a talk titled “Connect & Grow”.
It is natural for people with similar interests to spend time together and socialise – especially when photographers are so easily identified by copious amounts of gear hanging from their necks!
However, the concept of photographic communities has changed dramatically in a world which is dominated by social media channels and apps. This is not necessarily a bad thing though as there are now far more ways for people to connect and grow their photographic skill with like-minded photographers.
Here’s a short video which will give you an idea of what we are going to be talking about and we would love to hear your thoughts or questions that you might want us to touch in in our presentations!
