The SmugMug User Groups (SMUGs) are putting out a call for speakers for our 2012 monthly speakers series.
A SMUG is a place where you can learn, teach and meet up with other photographers who share your passion. It’s also how we can tell you what’s happening in our world and discover what’s happening in yours. SMUGs are a great way to connect with other photographers and add a few weapons to your creative arsenal. There are over 90 SMUGs worldwide. Rain or shine, it’s always a great idea to come to your SMUG’s monthly meetings. This way, you have a great collection of photos in every season!
We are looking for presenters that can speak about various photography related topics. Examples: Business topics, software, lighting, fusion, camera usage, portraits, photojournalism, sports, nature/landscape, commercial, boudoir, sports and weddings.
All types of photographers are welcome to present.
If you are interested in speaking, please send a short bio and course description and let us know why you would be great for our groups. We really want people with something interesting to say so let us know why this is you. These presentations are not sales-oriented so while you are more then welcome to mention products and workshops at the end, the bulk of the presentation should be on the chosen topic.
This is a great opportunity for anyone to get in front of a large, active group of photographers.
You will also receive a free SmugMug Pro account as a special thanks from SmugMug (for as long as you are a speaker).
To submit your presentation or if you have questions, please email Rocky Bowles at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we receive your email, we will send out a manual that explains all of the details for speaking at SMUGs.
All submissions will be kept on file and we’ll contact you if we choose your presentation.
SmugMug cannot thank you enough for your participation in becoming a speaker. It is the people like you that give SMUGs such a great reputation!
Long Island was SMUGged for the first time tonight at the Dix Hills Public Library. Thanks to Asia Lee and her willingness to organize Long Island’s first and only SMUG
(SmugMug Users Group), 15 people of all different backgrounds and skill sets got together to teach, learn and share information about SmugMug and photography.
Everyone got a chance to see how the SmugMug online gallery software can enhance what they do as photographers from a variety of view points. Asia began by showing some of her work and how she set it up in her gallery. Asia was followed by several other members who were all very willing to share their experiences with other seasoned SmugMug users as well as with the many newbies that had come down to get a look under the hood.
It was a very easy going and informative meeting with all members participating in one fashion or another. I believe many if not all left with some tidbit of new information to make
their use of the product much more enjoyable and productive. I know I did.
I know I will be looking forward to our next meeting and am already thinking about how I might apply what I learned tonight. Many thanks to Asia for getting this rolling. I suggest you get on the list and come down for the next Meetup on the 3rd Thursday in February.
