KISS MY CAMERA Q&A FORUM – A WORKSHOP FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS
Let’s get snapchatting! The Kiss My Camera Q&A Forum will focus on helping music photographers discuss, navigate and ultimately excel in everything from legal issues to promotion, challenges, new technologies, payments, opportunities and more – really whatever music photographers or anyone else involve in music photography (e.g. magazine editors, management, publicists, etc.) need to know about. It’s also a rare opportunity for photographers to have a drink and network, out of the pit.
