Your Blog is Boring and Your Photos Suck – take two

Mark your calendars! On Thursday August 25 Syx Langemann and I are hosting a two hour encore of our hugely popular Northern Voice 2011 talk Your Blog is Boring and Your Photos Suck about photoblogging. The talk will take place at the Vancouver Photo Workshops and is 100% free of charge.

The talk was hugely popular at Northern Voice and we had people sitting on the floor and standing in the isles. If you want to join us, go register at or And again, the talk is free.

Your Blog is Boring and Your Photos Suck is a two-part presentation. Part one has Syx take you through the creative process of taking a photo – everything from camera techniques and lighting to composition, colour theory and beyond. The second half picks up where Syx leaves off with me explaining how to publish your photos online in the most efficient way and get them noticed by the people of the internet.

If you’ve ever wanted to take better pictures, publish your photos online or you run a WordPress or other photo blog and wonder what you can do to make it better and more noticeable, this is the talk for you.

Because we have more time this time we’re also adding in ample time for Q&A, so bring your questions, ideas and comments and we’ll have a good old fashioned free-for-all.

So, go register at or and come geek out with us on Thursday!

As a side note I’m also starting a full-fledged WordPress course at Vancouver Photo Workshops in September. The course is the first of three targeting beginners. You can learn more by going to the Vancouver Photo Workshops website.
