I've just been invited to participate in a truly unique educational experience, Skip Cohen's Summer School.
Summer School is 2 1/2 days of intense programming featuring, Jerry Ghionis, Bambi Cantrell, Tony Corbell, Jim Garner, Dane Sanders, Matt Hill, Mitche Graf, Charles and Jennifer Maring, Ron Dawson, Kevin Kubota, Ken Sklute and Robert Evans. We're going to focus on a whole series of things - mixed media, new technologies, marketing, album design, lighting, social media and SEO just to name a few.
The program kicks off with Kostas Mallios from Microsoft as the keynote speaker on Sunday night. I don't know how many of you know Kostas, but he's a photographer and a futurist and the perfect opening program. Skip will round out Sunday night with "The Wacko Factor", his marketing/business program. (In these tough economic times, this is a program that is sure to be full of ideas to help your business.) For the next 2 1/2 days there will five, two hour programs on Monday, Tuesday and two programs on Wednesday morning with people departing ater 12:30 pm on the 19th.
Skip has secured the entire third floor of the MGM Grand Conference Center in Vegas and the MGM is going to be offering a $69 rate and include the 2 for 1 dining card and discounted drink cards we had at WPPI.
Cost for each attendee will be only $279 and it will include a FREE full registration for one person to WPPI 2010. (that alone makes it a bargin) The room is going to set up classroom style, everyone will get a seat and there's no issue about what program to choose - all of the programs run back to back, with only one program running at a time so you won't have miss another program while attending another!
Unlike programs in the winter, I love the fact that Summer School is in August, at a time when I can take those great ideas and immediately put them to use the following weekend at my next wedding or photo shoot!
Registration won't open for another week, so if you want to get on the list, email Skip at firstname.lastname@example.org. Space is going to be VERY limited.
