As we look to the end of the pandemic I’m happy with the prospect of traveling again for business and pleasure. However, live streaming will still be a big part of my day job. I live stream multiple times per week as part of my job at Adobe. I stream live Adobe tutorials regularly to YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Behance as well. Since this is what I do for a living I’m always looking to improve my production values.
I have been tweaking my dedicated live streaming studio since 2016. Being a photographer I’ve set up a few photography studios and no matter how you equip your studio you can always find more gear that you want and ways to improve it. I’ve been building out this live streaming studio since May 2016. I have everything I “need” to do my streams, but I’m always looking out for ways to improve upon what I have or make it easier to do my streams.
As with a photography studio, your streaming setup can be very basic or very elaborate
First off I want to thank you all for the overwhelming support of my NEW Photography Master Class on Fridays. The viewership has been amazing and I’m really enjoying the dialog. I’m excited to have a dedicated timeslot to talk about all things photography.
Thanks to Amazon’s new Influencer Program, I can now put all my gadget and photography recommendations in one place. This is the most complete guide that I’ve ever had simply because Amazon carries so many products. Does this mean that I don’t shop or recommend places like B&H Photo anymore? Absolutely not. I love B&H and quite honestly I will continue to buy my big ticket photography gear and electronics from there. However, there are so many things that I recommend that B&H just doesn’t carry. That’s why I’m stoked to have the opportunity to have my own spot on Amazon. There isn’t anything here that I haven’t used personally. The only possible exception would be a newer version of a gadget or piece of tech that I use that is no longer available.
They are nicely organized by category. You can see my recommendations here.
Happy New Year! I hope you had a great holiday break. I took some extra time off to unwind, but I’m back! I’ll be in my home office this week and that means that I’ll be live streaming design and photography tutorials. Here’s my schedule for this week:
Monday, 1/7 – 1PM PT – A look back at the BEST New Features introduced in 2018 for Graphic Designers
I hope that you all had a great Thanksgiving weekend and that you got a chance to spend time with family and friends. I’m in my home office this week and that means that I’ve got some live streams scheduled:
I’ve had an amazing couple of weeks! As many of you know, two weeks ago was Adobe MAX in LA. Last week was PhotoPlus Expo in NYC. From coast to coast I had a very busy presentation schedule with live in person audiences. I got to kick off Adobe MAX to an audience of close to 15,000 people. See my Photoshop presentation here. Last week I was doing sessions at PhotoPlus Expo in the Adobe Theater as well as the conference track. I also got to speak in the Nikon Theater. See that presentation here.
Now with the major shows out of the way for a while, I’m back to live streaming. Here’s my schedule for this week:
