Every January hundreds of thousands of people flock to Las Vegas in order to gawk at the latest in consumer electronics. Where else in the world can you see flexible 8K TV screens, advanced Google AI tech, and unmanned 6-person drone taxis? At this year’s show (2019) Nikon USA invited me down to speak in their booth at the Nikon School Theater. First I want to give a huge shout out to Nikon USA for the opportunity. I consider it an immense honor to share the stage with many of the world’s most accomplished photographers. Seriously, people like Ami Vitale, James Balog, Joe McNally, and Brian Skerry were speaking. Along with little old me.
Now I love doing these kinds of conference presentations because the goal is to get people inspired and excited about photography. And in my experience the best way to do that is simply talk about what I love to do with a camera. Which is why I decided to speak about chasing bad weather through the mountains.
It’s a common theme in my photography life: find beautiful mountains to hike through and then wait for bad weather to hit. It leads to many uncomfortable moments but it also leads to incredibly opportunities for photography. I don’t want to spill all the beans here, so watch the full presentation below.
