Webinar Success And More

My first webinar, "Building a Better Online Portfolio" ended on a really high note today---at least 700 people tuned in, and I expect many more will listen to the posted version when it goes up on PhotoShelter. Let me thank everyone who tuned in, and especially Allen Murabayashi, Chris Owyoung, Michelle Seekamp and Andrew Fingerman of PhotoShelter for the opportunity and the wonderful support. I hope we do more of these in the future.

I'd love to hear from some of you and find out what other topics you might want to learn about. Drop me a line and let me know.

It's a great thing to try (and of course succeed) at something new. I really had no idea what a 'webinar' was, but I was eager to find out by doing one. It's true: trying new things is a great way to grow.

Another wonderful thing this week is that the virtual gallery show I curated for the Griffin Museum of Photography went live. It features Sophia Wallace's "Modern Dandies" work, and I couldn't be happier to see it online. It's a beautiful, thought-provoking body of work that should not be missed. See it here and in the image above.

just wanted to thank you so much for the webinar yesterday. i really appreciated your honest opinion regarding the aesthetics of website design, and what photo editors are really looking for. i am someone who has never been able to objectively look at my work, and actually creating a portfolio has plagued me for more that 7 years now. you gave me a lot of inspiration, and i am working hard to bring my vision to fruition. thanks so much stella. you lit a fire under my ass, and it is burning hot!!

Stella, your webinar hit home..I immediately applied your suggestions for website design to my own and saw the results of your analysis, immediately. I must still do more tight editing, but the overall look of bright simplicity has made all the difference. Out of the darkroom into the light of the well-lit gallery;-)

Many many thanks for your generosity of time and sharing of expertise.

Thanks so much for the webinar. It was enjoyable and I found your views on sequencing images especially useful and not something I'd really thought of before. I was also relieved that my site doesn't have most of the things that annoy you.:)

Like many others, I too have immediately applied your suggestions. There's still much more that I need to adjust but have found your information very insightful and beneficial. I only found out about the webinar until after Photoshelter had blogged about it.

Thank you for putting the time and sharing your perspective and knowledge :)
