William Morton had the opportunity to shoot with J.T. MacMillan yesterday, covering the CAI 40th Anniversary conference. Terry Watson delivered an energetic (and highly entertaining) keynote speech to the Community Associations Institute members at the beautiful San Diego Hilton Bayfront hotel. The man has the smile and enthusiasm of a little boy, but the perspective and perception of a wise sage. Having an opportunity to listen to great speakers is just one reason I really love this job!
William Morton, owner of William Morton Visuals, has been selected to speak during the third photographers’ Professional Speaker Series at San Diego City College on May 28. William reports that he will be the “opening act” for the renowned Tony Corbell, a very popular speaker in the photography industry.
William will talk about “Color – Getting It Right!” In the world of professional photography, accurate color is a MUST. His discussion will include color calibration of your camera, monitor, and output as well as how to ensure that the color you’re capturing with your digital camera is accurate.
Shooting since his days on the Junior High School yearbook, William has 20 years of professional experience. Currently a local Board member and past-President of the American Society of Media Photographers (San Diego) as well as an Instructor for the Panasonic-sponsored Digital Photo Academy, William has also spent 5 years training portrait and event photographers for a national franchise. William’s current focus is on commercial photography and corporate events.
Internationally recognized Tony Corbell will be the featured speaker at this event. Tony’s presentation is titled “The Power Of Light in The Digital World,” and understanding and controlling light quality is at the core of all of Tony’s presentations. Attendees will learn how to see a unique perspective and not be afraid to push the limits of their experience and talents. Tony has been teaching lighting concepts, theories, and techniques for over twenty years and his week-long workshops on the topic always fill to capacity. In the past couple of years alone, Tony spoke to over 9,000 photographers worldwide on the topic of light control.
For those not familiar with Tony’s pedigree, Tony has photographed three U.S. presidents, 185 World Leaders, 65 Nigerian Heads of State, about 600 brides and grooms, a couple of NASA astronauts and lots of famous and not so famous faces. He has spoken at over 400 seminars and workshops nationally and internationally. He is the recipient of the highest honor from the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International with their Lifetime Achievement Award and achieved the status of Photographic Craftsman from the Professional Photographers of America. In 2005, Tony received the “Photographer of the Year” Award from the International Photographic Council of the United Nations and the PPA National Award from the Professional Photographers of California. Tony was also invited to join the prestigious Camera Craftsmen Of America in 2007, one of only 40 members worldwide. In 2007/08, Tony spoke to over 8,000 photographers in 36 cities including London, Glasgow, Dublin, Toronto, Mexico City, Sydney and many more U.S. cities. 2009 will again be busy with Tony traveling to London, Germany and many other cities discussing lighting and image editing.
