If you know me, and have been following my blog well, you will know that I am a huge advocate for sharing knowledge, experience, and the like. I've been very very blessed with meeting similar minded people who were extremely giving in their know-how early on in my career, which has helped me in leaps and bounds in the past couple of years :)
So when I was asked if I would like to participate and give a talk in an upcoming event called SHOOTFEST, an 'unconference' for photographers and videographers, I was stoked!
What is this shootfest you are asking? Well, I couldn't explain it better than the orgazanizers of the event themselves. This is an extract from their site:
An unconference is an informal gathering of likeminded people with a common interest. It’s a participant-driven conference, meaning everyone must participate in some way or another. We encourage everyone to present a topic or engage in a discussion during the 2-day sessions.
Each ShootFest is a media unconference primarily for photographers and videographers. This first one that is organised is themed The Wedding and is meant for professionals, freelancers and anyone interested in wedding photography and videography.
The benefits of ShootFests are knowledge-sharing, networking and raising the bar for the industry. If you feel you don’t want to share any of your kung-fu, then the unconference is probably not for you. We want to breed improvement for everyone, and need you to share your thoughts too.
I hope to see you all there! :)
