The Photographers Adventure Clubs (PACs) are putting out a call for speakers for our monthly speakers series.
A PAC 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. PACs are a great way to connect with other photographers and add a few weapons to your creative arsenal. There are over 35 PAC Chapters worldwide. Rain or shine, it’s always a great idea to come to your PAC’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.
To submit your presentation or if you have questions, please email Sarah! Sarah.Hales@PhotoAdvClub.com
Once we receive your email, we will send out a manual that explains all of the details for speaking at PACs.
All submissions will be kept on file and we’ll contact you if we choose your presentation.
PAC cannot thank you enough for your participation in becoming a speaker. It is the people like you that give PACs such a great reputation!
Steven Gustafson says
I have been an avid photographer since 1975 and have been teaching photography in the continuing education department of Chattanooga State Community college for the past three years. Recently , because of a lack of good books on photographic composition, I have been writing, teaching, and lecturing on composition from the perspective of Aesthetics. A photograph is a form of communication yet most photographers don’t know what their images are actually communicating to the viewer. With the knowledge of aesthetic principles students are able to choose and place elements in a frame to communicate the intent of the photographer.
I give each student a three page outline on which they are able to take notes and the lecture lasts for at least two hours depending on the interaction of the students. All that is required is a dry erase board.

What’s in it for the people who manage the Golden Gate Bridge? An epic public domain gigapixel image for historical purposes? Make it available for public viewing somewhere important?
Anyone know how to get permission?
Chris – I was an ironworker for 25 years and worked on the GGB in 1983 (put on the new bridge deck) I currently have several friends who are working on the Bridge and have already taken photos very much like you showed with the comment above! And I’ll bet they be very interested in helping you take more photos! The ironworkers BA (Business Agent) is also a friend… the gal to contact is Jennifer Cecil and she’s on my FB friends list!
I would be very interested in being one of your speakers in the greater Charlotte, NC area… and have passport – will travel! I’ve been a photographer for nearly 60 years!
We are looking for speakers in The East Valley of Phoenix for the 2nd half of 2012!
