Infrared Photography with Award winning Photographer Gary Potts: What is it? Why do it? How does it add to your Photography? What’s unique about it? Gary Potts, recently recognized by the Photographic Society of America with an Excellence Award, will answer these questions and more in a short program on IR. He’ll describe the differences between conventional digital photography, when IR works and doesn’t work, and how you might add new value to your portfolios with selective use of this new medium.
Entertainment and Action Photography with Professional Photographer, Jerome Hamilton: Ballerinas, gymnasts, dancers and entertainers of all types call Las Vegas home and call Jerome their photographer. For over 30 years, Jerome has been working with entertainers to have them look their best and now he will share his insights and experience with you in a once in a lifetime event. Multiple performers, performing up close, just for you.
