About the Speakers:
As a Chicago commercial photographer and photojournalist, I've been telling stories through some 6,000 assignments to date. Along the way, I have the rare distinction of being part of the highest awards in both advertising and editorial; a Titanium Lion at the Cannes Lion International Festival of Creativity and a Pulitzer Prize. Along with several other accolades, HarperCollins has called me "one of the world's leading photojournalists." Whether it be stills, motion or a hybrid shoot, I've learned to be resourceful, creative and dependable no matter the circumstance or level of production. I enjoy the benefits of being a sole photographer as much as I enjoy working with a team to achieve creative objectives and art direction on a larger production.
