BBC Friday 13 July 2012 @ OfficeXpats – BBC Regular Leslie Schneider Presenting

Our own BBC regular Leslie Schneider will speak on the special Photography Workshop going on at OfficeXpats in the month of July.

“Ever wonder what makes a photo great, or worthy of a cover on National Geographic? Wish you could confidently choose the most effective photos for your business or venture?” Leslie Schneider will provide highlights from the first two of four “Power of Photography” workshops at OfficeXpats presented by Steve Wilson, National Geographic photographer. Leslie will recap insights for how to read a photo, how photos work in your story, and how each one helps (or hurts) in conveying your message. 

NOTE: Space is still available! You can still participate in the final two workshops! July 17th & 31st, from 12:00-1:30 PM. The cost is $10 (OfficeXpats members are free). Call 206 780-2177 or go to to sign up now.

And speaking of great photos, Leslie sent me this fantastic shot of the OfficeXpats float in the 4th Of July Parade last week!

BBC Regulars – Upcoming Events
Tuesdays, Month Of July @ OfficeXpats Workshop – “Understand The Power of Photo To Tell Your Story” With Steve Wilson
Learn how to read a photo, understand how photos work in your story, and how each one helps (or hurts) in conveying your message. Acclaimed National Geographic photojournalist Steve Wilson is leading four 90-minute workshops in July on the power of photography to tell stories. Steve says “I try to use my craft as a way of speaking truth to power,” claiming that the authenticity and persuasion of his art is often more effective than direct challenges. Steve Wilson is a local Kitsap treasure, but better known to New York City editors than here. Steve’s portfolio spans the Seattle World’s Fair to LIFE and National Geographic, and includes Time Life films. While best known for soaring landscapes and intimate interactions with wildlife, Steve Wilson has always kept a focus on social justice issues. He currently focuses on philosophy from the fringes of society, recording and photographing street people and learning about their sometimes highly developed self-governance practices. He became inspired to document the articulate wisdom and sensitivity he witnessed, knowing that his art could make the hard political issues a little harder to ignore.  —$10 for each 90-minute workshop, 12-1:30 pm on Tuesdays 7/3, 7/10, 7/17, 7/31 (no workshop on 7/24). Limit of 24 per workshop. Call 206 780-2177 or go to to sign up now.
