This gathering will be a must for anyone interested in learning more about social media and how to use it to its greatest potential.
Aaron Hockley will be our guest speaker and whether you're a professional photographer or an amateur who cares about your images, social media can provide a great mechanism for sharing your photography with the world. Various platforms allow for images and other photography information to be shared; social networking can help develop and maintain photography-related relationships with others. For professionals, social media and social networking are an ever-more-important part of one's business and marketing toolset. We're going to explore the world of social media for photographers, including an overview of current tools and services, how to use those services for sharing photography, how to build and maintain relationships with photography-related individuals and companies, and how pros can increase their business influence and revenue using social media.
Aaron Hockley is a photographer with a tech background; he learned about social media tools as he was developing his photography business which currently focuses on events, commercial work, and the occasional portrait. Having blogged since 2001, Aaron has spoken about various social media topics at BlogWorld & New Media Expo as well as several WordCamp events, and his ability to bring together the social media and photography worlds has led to being quoted in articles for CNN, the New York Times, and ReadWriteWeb. Aaron lives near Portland with his wife and children.
