This was so much fun: leading a Photo 2.0 discussion at the FotoWeek DC Festival, November 2010. Photo courtesy Theo Adamstein / FotoWeek DC


In addition to meeting with photographers at a variety of national and international portfolio reviews I regularly speak about online photography at festivals, art schools and other photo events. I’m passionate about the Web’s potential to inspire communities and my lectures focus on the emergence of online photo culture and the opportunities the Internet provides photographers to connect with audiences and each other to create, fund and exhibit photography projects online.
