PROGRAM: Historic Route 66 presented by D. Brent Walton and Paul Bardotz
What happens when two professional photographers take to the road for a month?
Come join us on February 21st and find out. In their presentation, Paul and Brent will talk about lessons learned from a month long drive on historic Route 66 and how they apply to photography. They will discuss the things they learned about their equipment, approaching strangers, and taking a business approach to a venture like this. (Brent and Paul secured sponsors and received comps along the way. They will talk about how that all works.)
During their trip they put on over 7500 miles on a rental car, took over 25,000 images, and met people whom they will never forget (and a few who will never forget them either… but that’s a story you’ll have to attend to hear.)
Attendees will all receive a special gift!
