The Digital Journey of Celebrity Wedding Photographer

Creating Stunning Fashion and Fine Art Images

with David Benoliel

How I checked my ego in order to get the desired shots. I’ll tell the stories behind how personalities like Kevin Hart, David Koch, Iris Apfel, and Frank Lucas (Frank is the subject of the movie American Gangster played by Denzel Washington) can affect the mood of a shoot. I discuss how things went, how I handled situations. I discuss how crazy it can get sometimes and what I believe one can do to keep things even or what to do when caught in the eye of the storm. I believe a selfless approach to be a valuable asset in getting to the next level.

30 Year Retrospective Covering the Iconic Career of Mark Seliger

with Mark Seliger

Mark Seliger will walk viewers through the span of his 30-year career covering his many different genres and styles of shooting. Seliger’s work, which ranges from portraits of musicians and artists to Presidents and cultural icons from around the world, has been seen on the covers of Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, Details and L’Uomo Vogue among others. He will discuss his method of working with his subjects; understanding how they perceive their own image and working with that idea to come up with the final image. Likewise, he will discuss shooting for a specific purpose, a cover for example, and the challenges and opportunities of such a process. Seliger will also discuss his fine art photography, which he has pursued alongside his commercial work.
