With a desire to explore the community's connection to the past, she created a project documenting Scandinavian-American culture in the Upper Midwest United States. At OPTIC 2019, she shared stories from the experience, as well as some photos and tips for those wanting to start a documentary photography project. BIO: Erika Skogg is a National Geographic Explorer who is currently documenting Scandinavian-American culture in the Upper Midwest, United States.

Documentary photographer and filmmaker Doug Menuez shares his stories and rare photographs of Steve Jobs and the greatest innovators of the digital revolution, when Jobs gave him unprecedented access to document his process of innovation. Jobs’s trust led to insider access to document Silicon Valley, from 1985-2000, as the technology that changed all our lives was built. The resulting archive of 250,000 images is being preserved at Stanford University as a resource for scholars and historians and was the basis for his Amazon photo book #1 bestseller “Fearless Genius.” After showing the work, Menuez walks through how he is extending his core photo essay into a cross-media platform of content with new coverage of the next generation of innovators to produce a documentary film, TV series, immersive exhibition, education program, and more. He believes this is a viable model for visual storytellers to make a living.

Non-profit work comes from the heart. It is something from which you are not going to be making large amounts of money; what you are going to make (potentially) is an impact. It is a passion, an adventure, a way to give back and do good. No one told Bruce Byers how to do this—he just heard that he could join a mission and said, “OK, I am in!” It has been not only an eye-opener, but also a wonderful ride to some of the great places on the earth. But within all that, Byers never stops thinking about the next child he can help through his images. In this presentation, Byers discusses how he documents for non-profits: what it takes money-wise, equipment-wise, and the personal toll it can take, as well. Byers gives you the rundown about how he got involved and why, he goes over the ways he raises the funds he needs to make it possible to do this work, the equipment required, and how to be prepared for anything while being at the top of your game. He also discusses doing stills and video, the books he has created, and what he carries to get the job done. If you have the desire to document for a non-profit, to use your photography skills to make a difference in the world (and Byers thinks everyone should, because it will change your life and your photography), this talk is for you.
