Pulitzer Prize winner and former POYi winner Brian Smith shares insights from his last 30 years in editorial photography as he moved from Pulitzer Prize-winning sports photographer to celebrity portrait photographer for Hollywood's A-List. Smith will speak about both the art and commerce of editorial photography and what every artist needs to know about the business of photography to remain in business. In this presentation, Smith will share ways to grab and keep the attention of photo editors and art directors, how shooting personal projects can promote your vision and land the jobs you'll love to shoot, and ways to keep your portfolio and vision fresher than next year's winner of The X Factor.

Brian Smith is a Sony Artisan of Imagery and a former winner of Pictures of the Year International, the oldest and most prestigious photojournalism program in the world (on view now at MOPA).
