Did you happen to catch one of the live Demos at the Fusion Industry Expo? People loved them, along with getting their hands on all the great new gear! The day was pretty packed with back to back Fusion Seminars and we overheard some really positive comments. Check this one… “Verrry interesting to hear the stories behind the scenes on how those images were created! I learned a lot listening to ‘how it’s done’ in the real life of a photographer.” Tons of positive reviews followed about learning how to print your own images, use off-camera flash and improve sports, travel and pet photography.

You do not need to do anything if you have tickets to Robert’s talk and would like to hear Jeff’s in its place. We apologise for the switch. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any concerns.
Jeff Weddell’s bio:
I remember pressing the shutter release on the first photo I ever took. My Mom had given me a camera to take on a grade 6 field trip, and when we got the print back you could hardly see the tree, let alone the eagle landing in it. Since that moment it has been an ongoing quest to capture what is seen by the human eye in the two dimensional world of the photographic image.
The way light plays off a subject, travels through the lens and dances on the surface of the recording medium captures a fleeting moment that is meant to tell a story. For me, the most important moment is when the shutter is released. Be it a person, still life, or the emotions of a scene for film or tv, it is the essence of that moment that needs to be conveyed to the viewer of the final image.
That fleeting eagle image was in 1971. After completing a commercial arts program in college, I began working in the industry and have since had work appear in annual reports and magazines around the world. During the last decade I’ve been working in the film and television field capturing production stills and gallery portraits that have traveled the globe.
Every time I see an eagle, I remember that first image.
