Today we are proud to unveil the program for our newest addition to the BlogHer Conferences schedule: Viewfinder Day at BlogHer '13.
Viewfinder Day joins HealthMinder Day and Pathfinder Day as the newest pre-conference add-on opportunity for BlogHer '13 attendees. We opened registration for Viewfinder Day back in January, and today we're excited to give you all the details about this new day of programming at the intersection of the visual and digital arts.
Overview of Viewfinder Day
We believe that the web is becoming a more visually-driven platform. Video and photo content are not only huge traffic-drivers, they are key engagement tools for your online audience. Viewfinder Day seeks to step beyond our Photo and Video track at BlogHer '13 and dive deep into the interests, needs, and future of photography and video mediums in the digital space. Attendees will enjoy a full day of higher skill-level education and intimate networking with peers and thought leaders, learn the latest tools and trends, and bring your visual-blogging goals into focus.
You will sign up for Viewfinder Day as a separate add-on, but can do so at the same time as you purchase your BlogHer '13 ticket here.
What will Viewfinder Day be like?
Start your Thursday by taking a creative journey with Diane Cu and Todd Porter of White on Rice Couple, then split into tracks -- photo and video. Both tracks open with discussions about finding and honing your visual voice , featuring speakers like Catherine McCord (Weelicious), Lucrecer Braxton, Miss Lori, and Naomi Robinson (Baker's Royale). Attendees then will grab a lunch and head out for photo and video walks along the naturally and architecturally stunning Chicago River waterfront.
After lunch, you'll have a chance to get your hands on some cool new gear, and show off your own, in our Visual Gear Petting Zoo. Your programming day wraps up with hands-on post-production photo and video workshops, where you'll take your photowalk footage and experiment with editing software and techniques, under the guidance of a few leading photographers and videographers. Once the day of programming ends, we'll all meet back up to share our finished products, talk about the process, and share what we've learned.
To view the complete day's agenda, including the line-up of speakers, visit the Viewfinder Day '13 complete agenda here on BlogHer.com.
Remember: Space is limited for this event, and all of our pre-conference events. Register here for Viewfinder Day and BlogHer '13. We are so excited to help you bring your visual goals into focus with Viewfinder Day, and we can't wait to see you there!
