In addition to meeting with photographers at a variety of national and international portfolio reviews I regularly speak about online photography at festivals, art schools and other photo events. I’m passionate about the Web’s potential to inspire communities and my lectures focus on the emergence of online photo culture and the opportunities the Internet provides photographers to connect with audiences and each other to create, fund and exhibit photography projects online.
Lots of travels in 2010! In March, I gave a lecture about online community collaborations at Photographic Center Northwest in Seattle and I contributed to a series of panel discussions about photography blogs at the FotoFreo Festival of Photography in Australia. That summer, I facilitated a discussion about new media publishing at LOOKbetween and in October, I traveled to Toronto to speak on a Flash Forward Festival panel about The Future of Photobooks and indie book publishing. Recently, I've spoken about Internet photo projects that blend elements of online publishing, social media marketing and community collaboration at the FotoWeek DC Festival and the FORMAT International Photography Festival in Derby, UK.
Last year I discussed Photo 2.0 at Snap! Celebrate the Photograph and the New York Photo Festival and coordinated a video stream photobooks video discussion at the Flash Forward Festival in Boston. In November 2011 I hosted a streaming video conversation about Photo 2.0(below) at Light Work's Photographers + Publishing Conference.
