“DIGITAL KILLED THE PHOTOGRAPHER”
a generational study
The digital war is over but who exactly won? We are facing a whole new world where we are continually challenged with an ever changing market, new ideas and beliefs, and we now even live in a cloud… but how is that any different than before? Well, it happened 15 minutes ago and was so yesterday.
This program is a light but serious discussion on how to understand the challenges the digital world has brought us and coming face to face with today’s consumer. We will look at the clash of the culture of yesterday and today, the accessibility and connectivity of the digital world and how this affects the photographic world. Understanding your market can assist you in dealing with the market.
