Derrick Story Speaking at SMUGs


Starting this month, I'm available for speaking at SMUGs (SmugMug User Groups). I'm looking forward to meeting with other photographers who share the same passion for making great images and enjoy the process while doing so.

Currently I have five talks available:

  • "Efficient Aperture for Busy Photographers" (Apple's Photo Management Software)
  • What's in My Bag" (How to pack light yet have everything you need)
  • "Getting Started with Macro Photography" (Sometimes, the closer the better)
  • "Compact System Cameras Are Here to Stay" (And they might be right for you)
  • "Flash Photography for Event Photographers" (Lots of fun modifiers for this one)

Plus, Lowepro is also behind this project, which means there will always be gear giveaways at my speaking engagements. How cool is that?
