‘Secrets of Great Portrait Photography’ PhotoPlus Expo 2011

I’m very excited for the chance to do a completely updated presentation of the ‘Secrets of Great Portrait Photography’ at this year’s PhotoPlus Expo on October 27th in NYC. PDN’s PhotoPlus Expo is the U.S. version of Photokina – it’s a trade show and learning experience. I’ll pass along all my tips about photographing people and shooting great portraits. We had a full house last year and this year’s talk will be even better with lots of new photos and tips.

Secrets of Great Portrait Photography

Speaker: Brian Smith
sponsored by SONY
Thursday, October 27, 2011 from 1:15 PM to 3:15 PM
Javits Center, 655 West 34th Street, NYC – ROOM 1A23

Seminar Description: Celebrity portrait photographer Brian Smith will share the lessons he’s learned over the past 30 years capturing the faces of the famous, infamous and un-famous as a top magazine portrait photographer. He will discuss his approach to editorial and commercial photography assignments from concept to final images, detailing his approach to lighting and problem solving on productions large and small. He will also share his secrets for working quickly to capture the personality of the people he photographs. Finally, Smith will discuss how personal projects can be used to generate commercial and editorial photography assignments and to allow your personal style to evolve and grow while generating assignments you love to shoot.

In addition to this seminars, I’ll be speaking and doing shooting demos along with all of the Sony Artisans at the Sony booth on the PhotoPlus Expo trade show floor.
