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.

In this B&H Event Space video, Matt Kloskowski provides essential tips and techniques to help you process, print, and display your images in the best way possible. As he explains: Not all photos are created equal. Considering what you want to do with a photo should begin during the shoot itself. Follow along as he discusses points to consider while you are shooting, post-processing tips to make your files look great, the value of using printer profiles and soft proofing, and which papers will show off your prints to best effect. He also sheds light on the stuff they don’t tell you about workflow, including those sometimes-quirky printer settings to help you make the prints you envisioned at the original moment of capture. After watching, you’ll have a newfound enthusiasm for experiencing your photographs on paper, instead of on-screen, as well as the confidence that making beautiful prints is easier than you may have thought.

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.
