2010-2011 Highlights: Speaking Gigs

This past season, I was very fortunate to have two great opportunities to speak about my photography.

ReThink Hawaii
I joined a diverse group of passionate speakers and presented to a crowd who walked away inspired. I also made a bunch of great business connections and lifelong friendships. What a wonderful opportunity this was!

Hawaii Fashion Pecha Kucha Night
Pecha Kucha speaking comes with the challenge of only having 20 seconds to talk about each slide set to a timer. With only 20 slides allowed to tell my story it was a challenge, but I managed to share my insight and tips on high fashion looks on a low budget.

I am looking forward to more speaking opportunities in 2012. It's important to me to humanize the Firebird Photography brand because a large part of our style has to do with the one-on-one experience customers get. I also love sharing my thought process behind work because it shows all the pre-planning that goes into each shoot - and if I inspire someone along the way, that's bonus :)
