With cold weather inevitably comes cabin fever.  Fight back those cold dreary days with another installment in our Coffee Break series at The National Building Museum on Wednesday, November 18th.  Our guest will be architectural fine art photographer Colin Winterbottom, who currently has a show, Scaling Washington,  up at the Museum.

We will meet in the café area at 11:30AM for an informal conversation with Colin Winterbottom.

This Event is Free, however if you choose to view the exhibit there is an entrance fee of $10. We have a limited number of guest passes at our disposal, so email Matthew Rakola if you’re interested. There’s only four, so it’s first come, first served.

 

Here are a few of Colin Winterbottom’s featured photographs-

WEBSITES: Under the Hood

UndertheHood_FINAL

.
Often, our website is the first point of contact between a potential client and ourselves, and that first impression can be the difference between a dream assignment and eating ramen noodles… again. The problem is, it can be really difficult to tell if a website template is right for you without getting “under the hood” first. Is it easy to use? Do you need to know code to customize it? How does the client section work? Does it crash? Is the customer service any good? How does it look on mobile? And, most importantly, what do your clients think?
This event, aimed primarily at commercial and editorial photographers, puts us in the driver’s seat of each website to experience it from image upload to final viewing.  We’ll be driven by an experienced tour operator who knows it best– the photographer whose businesses relies on it. We’ll explore the good, the bad, the joys and the frustrations of each offering. No sales pitch, just real life experience.
