Professional Photography Keynote Speakers from Leaders in the Industry


The PDN PhotoPlus International Conference and Expo is an annual photography event for professionals, students, educators and advanced amateurs interested in the photography and digital imaging industries such as commercial, editorial, wedding, portrait and art photography, among others. The PhotoPlus photography conference includes photography courses, seminars, lectures and workshops taught by some of the world’s finest photography instructors and artists on subjects such as lighting and posing, wedding photography, business and marketing, social media, software and workflow, and video and multimedia.

PhotoPlus hosts keynotes featuring accomplished and renowned professional photographers such as Douglas Kirkland, Jerry Ghionis and Shane Hurlburt among others who can introduce you to a unique style and fresh perspective during a thematic presentation. Such photography speakers may help you learn what you’d like to try photographically, as well as help you know what you’re not interested in. And such presentations often inspire attendees, stimulate creativity or allow you to meet others interested in similar subjects. There’s even a chance to exchange ideas and expand your network, which may very well lead to your next job. Example of some PhotoPlus professional photography keynote speaker include Douglas Kirkland whose life is the story of a dreamer with a camera, and his photography, which has always been about interpreting people, places and events for countless clients and publications from celebrity to fashion to science and portraiture. In another instance, Shane Hurlbut, ASC, who presented how the DSLR platform is being integrated into Hollywood films at a staggering rate. He explained how he shot 2 feature films, 20 shorts and over 100 commercials on the DSLR platform and how the DSLR image quality can intercut seamlessly with film. In yet another example of a PhotoPlus keynote titled A Force of Nature, Art Wolfe, Frans Lanting and Thomas Mangelsen presented their work together, and or the first time ever, three of the world's most acclaimed nature and outdoor photographers come together on stage to share images and insights about the power of photography to shape ideas about our natural world.

The PhotoPlus conference is typically structured for anyone to purchase a pass that’s most suitable for their educational needs, available time or budget. The PhotoPlus Conference and Expo is held each October at the Javits Convention Center in New York City and regularly attracts over 250 exhibitors and nearly 22,000 attendees.
