The Business of NFT’s with Richard Liebowitz

With photographers and artists alike claiming non-fungible tokens (NFT’s) as the next big thing, many creators are embracing the relatively new phenomenon as a way to get their photos and art out to the public and turn a profit.  NFTs are a unique opportunity for photographers, artists and entrepreneurs to generate new ventures and profit from their art.

What makes NFTs so amazing is they can be verified on the blockchain as they are purchased with cryptocurrencies. The blockchain uses thousands of computers to individually identify and authenticate anonymous transactions. The blockchain functions as a digital ledger and allows for the safe transfer of NFTs without the need for an intermediary.

Artists and photographers are using websites like OpenSea to discover, buy and sell their digital items, with OpenSea acting as the first and largest NFT marketplace. Bitcoin, Dogecoin, stablecoins, NFTs, and other new exotic financial products have been getting a lot of publicity. Do you understand them? Should you create them? Invest in them? Will governments regulate them, and if so, what does this mean for you?

We will have an exciting, fun-filled discussion about NFT’s and see those photographers and artists that are savvy enough to decide if these digital currencies are the real deal or just a lot of hype!

 Every DSLR and mirrorless camera is capable of hi resolution video, iPhones and Android devices now offer 4k and multiple lenses. Video is always at your fingertips but perhaps you hesitate because you don’t feel you know how to edit video. This seminar will show you that getting started in Adobe Premiere Pro is not as difficult as you might imagine.

The Creative Cloud is fully integrated and if you have learned Lightroom and/or Photoshop you will feel right at home with the Premiere Pro interface. 

We will cover organizing your assets, video clips, audio, stills and how to create folder structures to easily locate your files. We will work with the Preview Monitor and creating In and Out points to trim you video in advance of placing it on the timeline. We will show how to place clips on the Timeline, how to move them around and trim them further on the timeline, how to transition from one to another and how to add additional audio in the form of music. We will cover how to work with stills and the “pan and scan” technique and even spend some time with Blend Modes and layering video clips.  This seminar is designed for the photographer well versed in Lightroom or Photoshop who wants to expand their horizons to the video universe.

Around the World in 50 Years with David Burnett

David Burnett, An Ethiopian boy tries for a last drop of water, in the Korem refugee camp, during the drought of 1984

The period of the 1970s through the beginning of the 21st century was a rich time for photojournalists. Magazines with budgets, pages to fill, and a desire to beat their competition, which included television, meant that photographers with curiosity, ideas, energy and determination had a chance to see the world as life was unfolding. David Burnett, co-founder of Contact Press Images, was one who took advantage of what journalism had to offer, and covered stories from the Vietnam war, to the Coup in Chile, the Iranian Revolution, the Fall of the Berlin Wall and the aftermath of hurricane Katrina. Along the way, the acclaimed recipient of the Robert Capa Gold Medal and of the highest award of the World Press Photo Foundation has attended ten Summer and three Winter Olympic Games, and followed life in Washington Politics. His involvement as a photojournalist continues today. Based in New York, he keeps on travelling the globe.

In this Keynote Lecture, David Burnett, co-founder of the NY agency Contact Press Images, will discuss fifty year career as a photojournalist, and his good fortune to never have run out of interesting stories to cover.
